Here are a few more options to search for what you want in the new Yahoo! Mail Beta. This is a follow up post to my earlier post about advanced search in the new Yahoo! Mail.
Attachment file types
Example: Search for jpeg attachments.
Attachment file types, not from certain senders
Example: Search for jpeg attachments that aren’t from Sally.
You’re telling Yahoo! Mail to search for .jpg attachments, minus any
Attachments with specific words in attachment name
Example: Search for an attachment with ‘Rafting’ in the attachment name.
A certain category of file, in a certain type of application
Example: Find any resumes in your Mailbox that are attached as a .tif.
Find a type of attachment linked to a message containing a search term
Example: Find all messages containing the word you’re searching for –
e.g. ‘lettuce’ that also have an mpeg movie attached.
(search term)(space)attachmenttype:(file type)
Find messages with a certain number of attachments
Example: Find all messages in your Mailbox that have more than three
attachmentcount (greater-than sign) (number)
Of course, you could also search for messages with less than a certain
number of attachments, too. This requires that you recall the less-than
sign. And if you have a specific number of attachments you’re looking
for, such as four, you could type attachmentcount=4. That is:
Find attachments in a certain language
Want to find messages with attachments in Italian?
Here are some other language abbreviations:
” Chinese: cn
” French: fr
” German: de
” Indian: in
” Japanese: jp
” Korean: kr
” Spanish: es
Using these tips you can search for what you want on the new interface of the yahoo mail. Do share in your comments on this. I think its pain to remember these keywords all the time!
Also has anyone noticed? Hotmail is kind of faster than before. I might as well switch to them! What email do you use and why?
