How to access your oldest emails in Gmail

See also

Are you one of the earliest Gmail users and want to access your old emails ? Recently I wanted to access my old emails and dug around for a way to do so. Finally after some hits and misses, I found the solution was to use a Gmail command to access the oldest page in your email. When you search for something in your email, note the url: where busload is the search term. To search for the last page, use where 99999 is the last page. There is no p99999 therefore you will get an error but the search will result in you getting the last page. This works for Chrome, and Explorer but for some reason I was not able to make it work with Safari

Here is a summary:

  1. Log into your Gmail account
  2. Cut and paste the following into the browser:
  3. Gmail will give you an error but just wait
  4. The last page of your Gmail will be displayed

Happy reading!
