Are you frustrated that when you search g-mail there are only 20 results that show up at a time? It’s quite difficult to review, mark, and move messages when the search results are limited to 20 messages.
Does it make sense that a “search company” which offers GIGABYTES of storage in their e-mail system limits your result count to 20? No. Of course not.
- Creating a Filter (thanks Stephan)
Create a filter with your search. Put your keywords in the "Contains the words" field, then click "test search" and hit continue. Next, create a label and apply the filter (ignore the warning that this will never apply to incoming mail) for the mail below. Of course it's complicated to create a filter each time you want to search for a large amount of mail, but still better than the 20 mail-limit.
- Suggest that Google fix it
Visit the GMAIL SUGGESTIONS PAGE and choose the second one from the bottom “Better message search functionality” – also, possibly choose the dropdown box at the bottom, select OTHER, and tell google you want more than 20 results! :)

If you haven’t seen QuickLinks in Google Labs, it’s worth checking out. It still only gives you 20 results, but it is a way of having saved searches easily available without having to create a filter.
About Quick Links
