By folder, you mean label right? If you navigate to a label, it should already populate the search bar with the format needed. So if I have a label called "Finances" the search should be label:finances and then whatever you're searching for If it's nested, it will be marked by a dash so if I have a "Bills" folder under that it would be label:finances-...

I ran into the same issue here 5 years later. Neither Gmail or IFTTT solved the problem for me. I signed up on https://zapier.com/ using my Google account. Using this, I was able to make a "zap" that's triggered when a specific email comes in and responds to the trigger by sending an email of my choosing. It was fairly straight forward to set up and ...

If you delete a label that was being applied in a filter, the specific action of applying that label will simply disappear from the filter. So if the filter only applied that label and the label is deleted, the filter will still exist but do nothing. As filters can have more than one action, the other actions, if any, will still be executed when emails with ...

You mention: Some time ago Gmail used to open with each main label 'closed', i.e. with nested labels indicated only by a horizontally-facing triangle. The now default behaviour is to have the main labels at the state (extended/collapsed) as were left by the user. This means that if the last time you visited gmail the main labels you (the user) left ...

All you have to do is either go in the label or click on the little arrow on the right hand side of the search box. For more info you can read about: Search operators you can use with Gmail

I could not find a straightforward solution myself either because the plus (+) sign is reserved as a special character for "Results that match a word exactly". So I use the following alternative. A decent alternative to:ouremails@gmail.com -label:(PLUS|PLUS-HER|PLUS-YOU|PLUS-HIM) Using the above search terms I can easily find anything but. How ...

You are correct. These are the options given when you look at the left hand side on the top of the Inbox or your message. You have to look somewhere else. You have to open your message and click the 3 little horizontal dots found on the top, right hand corner of the message. You can also find the Forward action on the bottom of your message.

Gmail labels are applied per message, not per thread. If any messages in a thread don't have the excluded label applied, then the thread will still show up in your search. If you turn off "conversation mode" in your Gmail settings, then threads will not be grouped together, and then you should see the expected results.

Unfortunately, there's no option for NAND operators in gmail, i.e. search for labels, but only those labels. However, you can shorten your search query with: is: instead of label: - instead of NOT {a b} instead of a OR b (a b) instead of a AND b For example: (is:(inbox unread) is:{important wife} -is:{updates "for later"}) Will show Unread in Inbox (not ...
