Email aliases now included in Gmail search results
With this change, searching will be easier and results more comprehensive, as users won’t need to remember all of someone’s aliases and run multiple searches for each.
An email alias is an alternate address for receiving mail, used in addition to a user's primary address. There are many reasons why someone may use an alias email address, such as:
- Official name changes
- Preferred names
- Company re-brands
- Acquisitions and subsidiaries
If you’d like to retrieve results for the exact query only, you can enclose it in quotation marks.
This will also apply to multiple inbox sections based on search queries which have an email(s). Labels are not affected by this change.
End users: There is no end user setting for this feature.
This feature is available now for all users.
Available to Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus, as well as G Suite Basic, Business, Education, Enterprise for Education, and Nonprofits customers.
