Gmail Tip Searching my gmail masseges

It is hard to search for a single mail from a batch of hundreds of thousandsof mails, but the Google's search algorithms can help you do it so instantly.
Within you Gmail account, select your folder from which you intend to searcha mail, e.g. Inbox, Sent mail, Drafts, Spam, etc. Your Gmail search field is located at the top on the right of the logo. Withthis field you can search both email messages in your Gmail account and theweb.
Just fill in any detail you know about the email you intend to search - itcould be a title of the mail, recipient's name or email address, a phrase orword in the body of the mail; etc. Just within the search field, you can click on the "show search optins". Thisgives a wide range fields to fill in if you want a very specific mail. These options can help you search:

  • emails according to senders or recipients: ( From: ......... and To: ......... )
  • messages containing (or not containing) specified words or phrases: (Has the words: ........ and Doesn't have: ............)
  • email subject (key words): (Subject: .......)
  • emails with attachments: (Has attachment - checkbox)
  • emails within a specific date range
  • email messages contained in your inbox, sent items, trash, spam , drafts, etc.
  • emails which have been read or unread.
Depending on how much you know about the particular email you intend tosearch, you can use one or more options to search for it. For example, you mayneed to search for an email sent to James(name field), with an attachment (justcheckbox), about school reunion(Subject) and sent with in June (datewithin)

Nothing goes into my all mail file

Could be a filter directing virtually all mail to another folder. While I would be tempted to say a google algorithm is deciding where to put your mail, another filter may be in place. Alternatively, here is something about Outlook mail leaving an empty folder: http://www.fixkb.com/2013/04/outlook-not-showing-emails-we-didnt-find-anything-to-show-here-but-the-folder-states-there-are-unread-emails.html

Look in Settings->Filters and Settings->Forwarding. Is there anything defined?
Do you access your account with an e-mail client (Outlook, Thunderbird, Pocomail, etc), phone, notifier, or any other add-on/tool/web-site/etc? Is anything enabled in Settings->POP/IMAP?
Check Settings -> Accounts -> Change Account Settings -> Other Google account settings -> Security -> Account Permissions. Have you given account access to any other web-sites or utilities?
Also, check the Details link below the Inbox (lower/right). What are all the types of account access listed there? (Quoted from Google groups.)

Access Gmail using a different browser, and send a few test messages. Where are they showing up?

Consider when this problem cropped up. Did you use a different device like a phone where some new app was applied to your mail?

I hope this helps.

Sending bulk mail to Yahoo

the error message means that the person or persons you are sending the mail to have problems with their mails so try sending it batch by batch or use a mass email sender software
