One of the main functionalities that lacking gmail is it’s sort functionalities by read and unread respectively. One tricky mechanism is there to for doing this. On the search textbox type “is:unread” to sort unread messages and “is:read” for read messages respectively. The feature is very useful for users, yahoo’s support is very much friendly for users. Here is a mechanism to do this in gmail.
When we search using the above query then we will get the result as unread messages in descending order.
Again what we do to search all read messages.
The results will be read mails in descending order.
Like wise we can apply different combination of search criteria in the search box. For eg: “is:unread label:inbox” will query the unread messages with label “inbox”. This is very helpful for power users. Why google is not implementing UI for this to attract normal users.
Is google mainly targeting power users ?
