Filter starred emails

Hello and thanks for your work on Gnome emailing! )

I stumbled through the app and documentation, but I can’t find a way to see my flagged messages in a folder. All I found is mention of Gmail starred folder. But it’s very limited (to G).

I open my archive which is a label in Geary, and there I’m looking only for starred items. (In K-9 you can sort starred to show for example.) And I can’t do anything to find them. Only clumsy scrolling which fragment needed items all across the archive.

It’s an important thing! Please reply with your vision of the issue.

In the search box, you can use "is:starred", as well as other search terms as described in the Geary help pages :wink:

Sorry I somehow overlooked it!

I wish Geary will develop forward! Without a button it’s quite disturbing to search repetitively.

In Gmail web interface the search string would be:

is:starred in:Archive

Geary took inspiration from Gmail search, but there are still two missing features:

  1. Geary doesn’t have yet a in: operator to restrict the results to a specific folder (or tag).
  2. There’s no button or graphical interface to generate the search without knowing the syntax.

Interesting discussions in the tracker:
