Show Unread Emails in Mac Mail – Solutions

September 12th, 2012

So you use a mac and you use the mac mail app but you don’t have a nice unread folder like outlook….

It’s quite simple, Mac Mail supports smart “search” folders

I’m working from the Lion Mail view and not Classic with these instructions.

Show the Mailbox list (button on toolbar or View menu in Mail), if it is not already.

Click the plus ( + ) button at the bottom of the list and choose New Smart Mailbox:

Set the criteria as follows:

Click OK. It will show up under Smart Mailboxes.

I dragged it up to my toolbar so that it was handy. I generally keep my Mailbox List closed.

I can select which mailboxes I want to view from the toolbar:

Another option that I don’t like as much is to switch to classic view

Switch to Classic view in the Mail Viewing Preferences. Check the box to display unread messages in bold.
As well you can sort by unread emails but it’s kinda lame….

Some more ideas on Smart Mailboxes.

 

Please note that a Smart Mailbox does not move any email. It is just a search that collects matching email and displays them all together. You can move emails from the Smart Mailbox, and it will move the email from wherever it happens to be, into the folder you drop it into (except another smart mailbox)

 

You can create smart mailboxes to group emails by date, also. I’ve got Last Week, This Week, and This Month set up. Notice how you can drop smart mailboxes on top of one another to group them. It doesn’t affect the search that is conducted, just puts them together. You can also add that group of Smart Mailboxes to the toolbar.

Searching Gmail – How To?

August 2nd, 2011

I often get questions about search and filtration (if there is such a word) in Gmail.
The questions are always how to show only Unread email or from specific people etc…
Gmail is obviously one of the largest (if not the largest) free email provider.
I would be nicer to have simpler filtration system with a GUI of some sort but let’s work with what we have.

Let’s Start
Unread Emails – from everyone
In the search bar should be placed in: unread and click on Search, all unread emails appear

Unread Email – from someone
Let’s say you want to see all the unread email’s I’ve sent you (thanks for not reading my emails by the way)
In the search bar write in: unread from: yeshai and hit search (now you can delete all my emails)

Of course you can find the subject basis as Subject:Yeshai

And there are more different abbreviations such as
l:^u – instead of in: unread
l:^ul: ^ k – mails deleted unread and still in the Trash

Do you have an interesting addition?
