I like Gmail even more with advanced search

Gmail is a better email provides than most of the other free webmail options around, but folks still have issues. Yesterday I was trying to find a specific purpose and I realised that I’d never used any of the advanced search options.
e.g: from:andrew has:attachment – will find all emails from Andrew where there was an attachment.
Now that I know what they are I’ll be using them all the time. They make Gmail great. Some highlights are:
- has:attachment, is so darn good for finding that lost file sent to somebody who you also trade 1000s of emails with
- OR – where the or must be in caps
Better still you can setup filters using these rules too, so that frequent searches are easy to redo.
