Just what the title says, how do I find the oldest email in Gmail? I know ho to find the oldest email from a specific person, but I’m interested in finding the oldest email, regardless of the sender or the label/folder it resides in at the moment. How can I do this without manually going through each label?
All Mail includes all the mail.
- Click on the All Mail button on the side bar.
- Right next to the < > buttons you should see a link 1-100 of xx,xxx → click on the link.
- The drop down should give you two choices: newest and oldest; select oldest.
- You should now be on the last page.
Note: if the All Mail label isn't on the sidebar, it can be added via: Gear → Setting → Labels → show.
