Hi @Lukasz_Walo

Sadly, no - that 2 day limitation is based on restrictions on the Gmail API and there is no way around them.

I see you can download your email:

However I don't see any viable way to search and extract them I'm afraid.

oh I was think this will save all my work - Zapier is great program - I can make all roles to do it but can use on standard files 😞 _ if i put files in Dropbox or Google drive i cant search in them ?

Hi @Lukasz_Walo I have seen folks work with emails that are older than two days by exporting them as rows in Google Sheets and triggering a Zap from that. I'm not sure how they exported their emails, but do you think that would work?

It depends if you need the original sender of the email or just the contents, but another way of doing this would be to forward the emails to another Gmail account and trigger a Zap from them that way.
