I heavily rely on Gmail's category organization. Lately I've started archiving emails that I've looked at already to avoid clutter in my "primary" category.
However I've run into a problem. If I want to look at a recent "primary" email, I can go to
All Mail and look through them, but then it's totally cluttered up with all the other emails.
Is there any way to go to
All Mail and then filter by category? Or is this just not possible because the categorization is destroyed by the archiving operation?
What I've tried:
- If I click on
All MailI see all archived messages. If I then use
category:primaryin the search bar, it resets and only shows me the un-archived primary emails.
- I've reviewed Gmail's search operators (https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7190?hl=en), but could not find an appropriate entry.
