I want to filter all emails with subjects containing a word.

So far I tried subject:(has: abc) but it doesn't work.

I'm wondering what's wrong with a simple query like this?


From my testing, it returns all emails with titles containing abc as a word. It does not return emails with titles like abcd.

  • It works for me in personal free account, but doesn't work in gsuite corporate account.

  • Wow! I didn't know that. I just tested and confirmed. I am shocked that the behavior is different. Good grief does everything need to be an apps script? Dec 10, 2021 at 9:00

Can't you just use the dialog box for creating filters? dialog box
