I am trying to filter gmail searches using
filename[filetype] syntax, specifically for .zip and .jar files.
When I try
filetype:zip, for example, I am able to see exactly 6 results, which all include .zip attachments.
However, I have been able to manually find many emails with .zip attachments that did not show up in the original filtered search showing exactly 6 results.
This is an issue for me since I am trying to locate several emails with zip files from many years ago. My theory is that the search is looking at the first
N emails, or the email from
N years ago - NOW, and ignoring the rest.
Is there a better way to filter searches by filetype or to force gmail to search deeper into my archived emails? Appreciate any useful info.
