Google announces search by size

Today, November 14th, Google announced that they have added features to Gmail to allow searching by size and age of email.

We’ve long asked for this feature and have encouraged you to do the same. This is a great improvement to the Gmail product and enables users to find their big emails easily within the existing Gmail interface.

We will leave the site up for existing and former customers so you can continue to process your full mailboxes using FindBigMail if you wish. If you can think of other features we might add to your Gmail experience please let us know.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Cheers, Matt & Mike

The findbigmail app is still much superior to what google now provides

Thanks Keith and Don.

Yes, there are some nice features of FindBigMail that are not superseded by the Gmail search by size. The Gmail search doesn't accurately count the big emails and you can't sort by size so if you have thousands of big emails, you have to search repeatedly to see the very biggest. Users email us other features they like as well. We'll keep the server running.
