The GMail feature I want

2007-05-22 08:52:52

My work gmail account usage was up to 80 percent. One big missing feature in gmail is that there is no way to find/sort by the largest messages. Over 50% of my gmail space is in a small number of messages with big attachments, and it's really hard to find them in gmail.

I'd like to be able to have in the search options a size setting. So I could do something like "find all messages with an attachment, larger than 4MB."

It took me over an hour of work to clean up 1GB of big messages; I had to guess at what they were by searching for things other than size.
