I need to find a specific term that was mentioned in an email, however, the normal search for that term return all emails in the conversations because they quoted the previous ones, and it's very hard to find the specific email that first mentioned the term. I've disabled the conversation view because that rendered searching useless but nevertheless I'm having a really hard time finding anything in Gmail. I have many long conversations and I simply cannot find anything on them because no matter how I filter them Gmail will return many pages of emails for me to manually parse. With the conversation view turned on the same problem happens but instead of having pages I have long email chains to expand and try to make sense of. How can I somehow get a list of emails that only mentioned a specific term in their bodies?
