How To Quickly Find Messages With Attachments In Gmail

Search For Email With Attachments

There are several ways to search for attachments in Gmail using Gmail advanced search operators:

  • has:attachment – This one filters emails to only those that have anything attached.
  • has:attachment doc – This one filters emails to only those that have .doc files attached.
  • filename:.doc – Works almost exactly as the above one (but this one is the documented operator for searching attachment types).
    • Note: filename: already implies that there should be an attachment included, so you don’t need to use has:attachment together with it.
    • Note: a dot is not required before the file extension: filename:.docfilename:doc
  • filename:google*.doc – This one filters emails to only those that have doc files attached and these files have [google] in the beginning of the name (whereas filename:*google*.doc searches for messages that have documents attached with “google” mentioned somewhere in the middle of the file name).
  • filename:.doc OR filename:.html – This one filters emails to only those that have either .doc or .html files attached (or both).
  • filename:.doc AND filename:.html – This one filters emails to only those that have both .doc or .html files attached.
