UPDATE: Changes to Gmail have made this question less relevant; there is now a Snoozed folder allowing snoozed messages to be easily viewed.

I recently started trying out the new Inbox app from Google. While it generally works side by side with Gmail, there is one thing I can't find a parallel for in Gmail.

When a mail (or reminder) is snoozed in Inbox, it is removed from the inbox but can be found in Inbox by opening the Snoozed label, thus listing the snoozed items. However, looking at Gmail the snoozed items seem only visible in the All Mail view, where they are mixed in with other mail that's archived or still in the inbox but there doesn't seem to be a Snoozed label that would let me view only the snoozed items.

Is this simply a missing feature still to come, or is there some way I've missed that would let me view just the snoozed items within traditional Gmail?

Searching for "label:snoozed" lists Inbox snoozed emails in Gmail. But snoozed does not seem to behave like any normal label in gmail as you can not apply it other emails.

    Ah, perfect! Exactly what I wanted. So the snoozed label exists but is treated a little differently in not appearing in the list of labels; you need to search for it. – Steve Crane Nov 12 '14 at 20:40

    Has anyone figured out how the snooze-until time is represented? Is it represented by something that Gmail or other mail readers can access? Is it a property visible in IMAP? – Krazy Glew Jul 30 '17 at 5:37
  • Thanks! Note you can also "create" the "snoozed" label in gmail, and it will then show up in the labels list. Clicking on the "snoozed" label essentially just searches for label:snoozed so this works just fine! Some caveats: you cannot "snooze" in gmail by adding this label, and you cannot see "Someday" snoozes. – Raman Jan 16 '18 at 16:13

If the email already returned to the inbox (after snoozing), I discovered I can search using is:pinned because the email will be pinned.

    is:pinned not working anymore. Do you know any other method? – borayeris May 15 at 15:59

While the answer from @psacc was previously the one I was looking for, recent changes to Gmail have added full support for snoozing. This includes a Snoozed "folder" that can be used to view snoozed messages.

enter image description here

  • I'm finding that this shows me only recently snoozed messages/threads, not all snoozed since the beginning of the feature. Not sure if I should consider this a separate question rather than looking for the solution on this one, but in any case, the above isn't proving a very satisfactory fix (albeit better than not having any Snoozed folder, as long as I know it's incomplete). – CynicallyNaive Apr 29 at 5:30

You can click the "All Mail" button (below "Drafts", in the left panel of Gmail). The snoozed email should be in that "All Mail" inbox. Hope this helps.

Edit: Also, while you are viewing that email, you can click the "Move to Inbox" button to move it back to your Gmail inbox. But this also means your email will no longer be snoozed in "Inbox" app.

    Yes, I know how to use Gmail. I currently have 26,793 messages in All Mail; how would you suggest I find the ones amongst those that have been snoozed? That is the information I was actually looking for. – Steve Crane Feb 17 '16 at 18:25

just create a new label into Gmail with the name "snoozed", then all the snoozed emails in Google Inbox will be available into Gmail.

    After trying this and seeing that it doesn't work I found a snoozed message in Gmail by searching for its subject. I saw that it didn't have any visible labels that could be used for something like this. – Steve Crane Dec 7 '16 at 21:20
