How can I find email older than 10 years in Gmail? I need my messages since the beginning; I guess 2003 or 2004. I see only since 2007!

  • Gmail was launched in 2004 and wasn't available to everyone. Unless you've imported mail from elsewhere, you won't have messages from 2003. – ale Nov 6 '19 at 16:44

If you sure haven't deleted it before.

No reason not to find the emails!

What happens when you enter after:2003/1/1 before:2006/12/30 in the search bar?

No results?!

Look in "all mail"

  • click on the "all mail" label in the list of labels.
  • In the upper right corner you will see a clickable item "1-100 of xx,xxx"
  • click on that item and select oldest.
  • you will now see the oldest messages you have in Gmail.

If there is nothing before 2007, then those were deleted at some point.
