Search in GMail for large attachments

If ever you wanted to do some smart filtering or searching in Gmail, let's say you want to find emails with large attachments, it's now easy to do. Found this on the official GMail blog. Enjoy:

We're always looking for ways to make it faster and easier for you to find your messages using search in Gmail. So starting today, you can now search emails by size, more flexible date options, exact match and more.

This means, for example, to find emails larger than 5MB, you can search for size:5m or larger:5m or to find emails sent over a year ago, older_than:1y.


These changes go hand in hand with other recent enhancements to search such as the improved autocomplete predictions and a field trial for instant results from Gmail, Google Drive and more as you type
