Via Google Operating System
If you're like me, you love updates to Gmail and you love Gmail's search capability.
Well, thanks to Alex Chitu over at GOS, I learned Gmail's search powers have been given some awesome sauce: As the title indicates, users can now search inside the text of their attachments.
Witness the two screenshots from Alex, below. The selected email lacks a subject header and any body text, yet Gmail found the text from inside a .ppt file, using the search terms.
You can narrow your search down by using has:attachment and including the file type (pdf, doc, xls, etc.) with filename:[filetype].
Enjoy! Thanks, Alex!!
