In Gmail, I go through all emails starting from the last one, and I make sure none of them needs answering. If I find one that needs answering, I answer it, but then I lose track of where it was in the list, to keep going through the ones after that. How can I search for that email and then jump to "see all" again from that point on?

For example, I go through 1120 emails, I answer the 1120th, but then I want to go back to reading 1121th and subsequent. How can I quickly jump to email 1120th then go to all the other older ones, without having to manually go to 1120th in batches of 50?

Any ideas?

  1. You can increase the number of conversations per page to 100 by going into Settings -> General (the first tab) and changing the number in Maximum page size (2nd from the top).
  2. The new interface also has human-readable pagination links: http://mail.google.com/mail/#all/p2

Also, if you find yourself going through 1,100 emails, you should really consider Inbox Zero, using labels, and creating filters - it will save you time looking for emails.

  • I realised now I can also do the pagination URL on the new interface, so this is now the best answer. Thx.

Either back to inbox or older or newer will work at going back to where you wereenter image description here


I just found out that I can bring back the old interface, which allows me to manually jump to a specific page, like so: mail.google.com/mail/?yaddayadda/in%3ainbox/p20

    This won't last for long, as the old interface will be phased out in the near future.
