Sometimes some mails that I need to search are mostly among those that I have read.

Is there a way to perform this search in Gmail?

Add is:read to your search terms.

  • Thanks! I only knew about the in: operator.

  • This won't work if a thread has mix of read and unread messages. Is there a way to search only threads where all message were read?
