Hi ... this is a weird request, but makes sense when you think about it.
I have noticed that v7 has apps that search cloud storage. Fine.
It would be very handy to have a search for gmail messages separate from messages downloaded into Outlook/IMAP.
If I have a ton of older messages in gmail, I don't necessarily want them in my Outlook IMAP cache because the total storage could easily reach 100GB, which is a burden on the disk and also slows Outlook down.
So, for such e-mails, leaving them without labels (or with labels that aren't subscribed to) on gmail is perfect. It leaves seldom-used e-mails on gmail, where they're safe enough but don't impact client performance.
I still want to search them, though ... and right now, I have to go to gmail.com to do that.
I also wonder why the advertised best search product doesn't support one of the most common email services: gmail. I presume nothing has advanced on this? I can't see anything specific in the add-ons.
I am the most happy Copernic search user - and with this feature, my world would be perfect.
Thanks team Copernic for doing always an amazing job.

Most of us check Gmail directly in a browser and not in a local Outlook or Thunderbird copy. This feature would reduce the local storage size significantly, as nobody wants to have 30.000 or more emails locally.
I also want like to search gmail and contacts. Please
I would also like to search my gmails
This would be a great feature. I have years and years of old gmails. It would be great to search them rapidly.
Typical searches are for products that I've purchased or bills that have already been paid.
Excellent idea, and Barry's right. If I can search cloud storage, I should be able to search Gmail.
