[Gmail Tip] is:unread in:inbox

If you find yourself falling behind in getting all of your emails read, like I have in the past week, you may find it useful to put the following in your Gmail search:

is:unread in:inbox

This will filter your messages to just those that are unread and in your inbox. Pretty cool. This help a lot for me because I have a lot of filters on my mail that mark some mailing list emails as ‘read’ and put others under different labels without marking them as read.

  1. You read my mind! I’ve had a couple unread messages in my box for a while and hate that big bold number staring at me everyday. Thanks for the tip!
