I need to find open conversations sent to [email protected] that do not have received a reply from [email protected] yet.

to:[email protected] -"[email protected]"

queries like the above fetches everything as it searches the first email in every conversation (which would not obviously have any traces of [email protected]) and then returns the entire conversation in the search result, which is not the desired output.

I found a three step solution.

Step 1: Search all conversations that received a reply from [email protected] using the below search query

to:[email protected] from:[email protected]

Step 2: Label all the search results as "replied" using the gmail UI

Step 3: Search for conversations that are NOT labelled as "replied"

to:[email protected] -label:replied

I got the desired results :)
