Gmail Saving in Libre Writer

I'm trying to search and then save old gmails in my Libre Writer.

Has anyone found an easy way to search gmails older than just one year.

There's the search box drop down menu where you can search by terms and All
Mail + Spam but the drop down menu for date is limited by one year.

There's a box next to that box where you can play with dates going back 10+
years but that one year box next to it limits the search.

Can you pls share how you've been able (recently) to search all your mails
(or at least all your Sent mails) for the past 10+ years in your gmail
account?

Thank you.

Are you trying to do this in a browser?  Use a real email client, such
as Thunderbird.  With it you can sort as far back as you like.  You can
also use it to archive mail by year.  Configure Thunderbird to use IMAP,
to keep everything in sync.

Sounds interesting.  I can't really help as I use Thunderbird as a front
end and a very robust folder set up.  I see messages from 2015.  I'll
look at using the web client later today to see if it is a TB feature or
a gmail quirk.

But I am very interested in how you are betting the messages into LO
Writer?  I am a board member for a not-for-profit and would like to have
off line documents of various discussion threads.


TIA,
Rod

If I leave the drop down box alone and just type into the search field,
the search goes back to the beginning of my emails, 15 years.

I am not sure I have understood the thread so this may be irrelevant
but if you are in gmail, you can easily write a 'filter' which allows
searching on sender, subject (or terms in the subject), content or
dates. you can have it sort mail into folders ('labels' as they call
them).

sorry if I miss the point; ignore.
