Locating Archived Emails in Gmail

Issue

When you archive an email, how can you look at the archives? 
I accidentally archived a message how do I find it?

 

Environment

  • Gmail

 

Information


The easiest way to view archived emails within Gmail is to search for them. If you know any information about the email (sender, subject, approximate date received, etc) it will be easiest to use the advanced search function by clicking the down arrow in the search box. Additionally you can see any archived mail under "All Mail" from the navigation pane on the left hand side. This, however, will show all mail including what is located in specific labels and what is in the inbox as well as anything that has been archived.

 

Resolution

To view only archived messages

  1. Click the Search mail text box at the top 
  2. Type "in:archive"
