Is there way to view the search results returned in Gmail to an exact number?

Let's say I have a friend, who knows this girl, who won't stop emailing him. He's filing for a restraining order, and he wants to put the exact number of times she's emailed him.

When he searches for her email, say using terms from:[email protected], the results say "1-20 of Thousands".

Is there a way to determine the exact number, you know, in the interest of filling out the paperwork accurately for the state of California?
