If I search for in:inbox, it also won't show. If I search for both in:inbox is:unread then it does show. If I search for in:spam is:unread it no longer shows, or in: [anythingelsehere] basically. What I'm trying to say is, it CLEARLY is in the inbox, and not somewhere else, but for whatever reason the only way I can find the message is to search specifically with that combo of filter, or to directly search the string of the subject. I can also see it if I just navigate down to "All Mail"

And for the record:

No, I have no filters that should be filtering this email out

No, other messages don't seem to be encountering the issue, just one in particular

No, there are no labels applied to it, unless you count "inbox" as a label (but it won't show if I search label:inbox)

No, it does not show up in any other left hand filter other than "All mail"

No, I don't have any of the weird "primary" and "social" tabs enabled

No, I am not using POP or any other 3rd party tool to interface, this is using latest version of Chrome and going to gmail.com.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

  • How many items are in the label inbox? Search either by label:inbox, or by in:inbox. – mhoran_psprep Jul 1 at 21:16

There is one thing you can try to see unread emails. I recommend you to enable unread email first on the page. For this

  • Open Gmail account.
  • Go to Settings on Gear icon.
  • Under Inbox tab, next to Inbox type, choose Unread first.
  • Below this choose the number of emails you wish to see which are unread.
  • Save the Changes.

I hope this helps!
