I need to get the list of emails sent on a day of the week by a service. Is that possible to find in Gmail? Such as 'only Saturday' emails or 'Sunday & Wednesday' emails?

Or any email client supports this?

  • what is the range?

  • that's a big range... if it would be something over 1 year it could be done internally in Gmail by using epoch time, so I guess you will need to scrape your Gmail with some 3rd party app and filter it out. for example with Google Sheets

  • Thanks. This seems to be a working solution. So I guess, there is no straight forward support from gmail filters!?

    filter is limited to 1894 characters where inputting 1day costs approx. 40 characters multiplied by 46 days equals around 10.5 months << so that's the max range you can filter in Gmail internally

Here I built you generator for a string. Enter range, select a day of the week and copy the string from cell C7 into Gmail's search...


spreadsheet generator


  • Thank you! I'll reiterate multiple times to get the data.
