I know this tutorial: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7190

But when I use the TO: operator (TO:myemail@myemail.com), I get also emails where is used myemail@myemail.com for CC or BCC.


The TO:myemail@myemail.com will return all messages sent to myemail@myemail.com, including those where myemail@myemail.com is CCed (or BCCed in case you send the e-mail, since you can see the BCC).

Use TO:myemail@myemail.com -CC:myemail@myemail.com -BCC:myemail@myemail.com instead. (the 'not' function is represented by a minus -)

Parenthesis are only required when you want to search for two or more email addresses for that operator, i.e., TO:(myemail@myemail.com OR myotheremail@email.com)

  • The parenthesis are only required when there are more than on email address for the operator.
