I have zillions of emails. I was suggested Bluemail app for Android but it sucks at searching.

I need to have something like Thunderbird has for desktops (no app, unfortunately) which allows me to do conditional searching such as: list me all the emails that contain the word "Minnie" only in the subject AND have CCed to "Mario" AND have an attachment.

  • Bluemail app was also found to steal your passwords, btw, so I'd rather not recommend it. I don't know which app has the search capabilities you're after, but you can check with my corresponding app list while waiting for good recommendations. My recommendation would be avoiding those with trackers (monitor icons) and prefer those with stars (no tracking). – Izzy Jan 19 '20 at 20:18

Have you considered/tried good ol' Gmail app?

You can search in it using all Gmail Search operators (see reference here https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7190?hl=en). So you can use something like this: subject:minnie has:attachment cc:minnie@example.com

    Does this work also for the mobile app or only for the desktop one? I cannot find any information. Also, can I add any account I want with the gmail mobile app? – Millemila Jan 20 '20 at 16:58
  • @Millemila works (didn't use to, but does nowadays) for the Mobile App as well. Yes, you could add any email account to the Gmail app BUT... I do not know if the search will work the same way. – Yisroel Tech Jan 20 '20 at 19:14

    I need the search to work over multiple accounts. I will try it and get back here – Millemila Jan 21 '20 at 19:33

Check out Inbox by Blackberry. Allows to search multiple criteria and searches well.

Also has some great features like snoozing emails, gesture support, full editor, etc. p.s. Free version displays a banner ad.
