Is it possible to limit GMail search results to unread messages? This isn't about selecting unread questions from existing search results, which is covered in this question. I'm looking for a search flag that works for unread messages the way label:NAME_OF_LABEL does for labels.

(I do actually know the answer to this -- it was easily Googlable -- but I'll hold off on posting it for an hour or two to give someone else a chance at the easy Internet dollars.) –  Pops Nov 29 '10 at 16:15
    
I'll claim those dollars :) –  Whitingx Nov 29 '10 at 16:28
    
@Whitingx, sold for 25 Internet dollars. Your answer actually surprised me, I've been using a slightly different but equally effective method, which I posted as a separate answer. –  Pops Nov 29 '10 at 17:31
    
@Lord-Torgamus - multiple paths, same destination, lets share those dollars $12.50 each :) –  Whitingx Nov 30 '10 at 10:17

In the search box, type "label:Unread"

Using advanced search

hope this helps.

Whitingx's answer is good, but it's not the only answer. The flag is:unread works equally well.
