There are a few ways you can quickly find all correspondance from a single person in GMail. Staff author Jess Stratton takes users through several ways to find messages to and from a single person, including using the search box, and hovering the mouse over any contact's name anywhere in GMail, which comes with some additional bonuses.
- [Voiceover] If I'm reading a particular email…from somebody and I wanna very quickly see all…correspondence either to or from that person,…I could put their name into the search bar.…However, a much easier way is to hover my mouse…over their name and then click Emails.…It's going to bring me to a special page.…This page is any email from that particular email address…or addressed to that email address.…It also has a nice tidy little profile…at the top of the page.…I can quickly compose a new email to them if I wanted to,…or I can click their name to see their contact details.…
