    Here is a trick to find attachments in Gmail. I found it useful. For either locating and or deleting large files.

    source - http://www.lifehacker.com/software/g...ail-215191.php


    "Search by file type. I used the following search phrases:
    filename:wmv -label:nodelete
    filename:mov -label:nodelete
    filename:mp3 -label:nodelete
    (this one was pretty weak since MP3 is common in text)
    filename:doc -label:nodelete
    filename:pdf -label:nodelete
    filename:jpg -label:nodelete

    etc
    etc

    That's neat, hope I can remember to use it if i ever need to search for an attachment.

    I just discovered how useful the search in gmail really is a few days ago when I was looking for the login details to a peice of software I bought...

    Searching those will find it in the actual message though, not just searching attachment filenames.
