Searching between dates in GMail

Problem: I’m doing my tax return šŸ™ And need to frequently look for emails sent andĀ receivedĀ in the 2010/11 tax year.

Fix: Gmail is really powerful when the text search box is used. There are various advanced search operators but the ones that help here are ‘before:’ and ‘after:’. When twinned with ‘from:’ or ‘to:’ it returns exactly what you want.

Examples:
A certain date range:

after:2010/03/31 before:2011/04/01

The phrase “invoice” in a certain date range:

after:2010/03/31 before:2011/04/01 invoice

From an individual in a range:

after:2010/03/31 before:2011/04/01 from:wave@thesea.com
