Searching Gmail for Flights

Hey guys. So I'm trying to determine how far I've flown over the past five years; I'd like to search my Gmail account for every flight confirmation, but the results are terrible--it seems like the search is bringing up all kinds of unrelated emails. Does anyone know of a better way to do this? Thanks!

My Google searches are being invaded by an email address

A few days ago I was searching for an email in my Gmail inbox and entered the email address of the person I knew it was from -- let's say invader@email.com. I don't know what I did wrong during this very mundane occurrence, but ever since then "invader@email.com" has been aggressively filling itself in on google-related search boxes in Chrome, preventing me from using Google effectively. How can I make it stop? [more inside]

How do I get some forwarded emails to stop disappearing due to SPF?

Right now I have the email setup of my small business so that email@domain.com (we'll call it) is our public address, and email sent there is forwarded by our host provider to email@domain.net, which is our main company account with Google Apps for Business. 99% of emails sent to email@domain.com come through to email@domain.net just fine, but there's that 1% that just disappear -- they don't go to spam folder, they don't seem to go anywhere. Help! [more inside]

Matching two spreadsheets via one matching column

I have two separate marketing lists on spreadsheets, both of which were originally opt-in, but have been residing on different systems - System A for email marketing and System B for SMS marketing. List A has the users' email addresses, cellphone numbers and names. List B just has the users' cellphone numbers (plus a column called "unsubscribed" for those people who. I want to combine the two spreadsheets to create one spreadsheet while keeping the column called "unsubscribed" so I know which people to keep permanently removed. Can you advise me on how to synchronise these two spreadsheets using the cellphone number as the common data? Thanks!

Gmail + Thunderbird = spamfree email?

Gmail + Thunderbird = spamfree email? I use gmail (via google apps) for my small company's email. While it is generally good, the inability to permanently block a sender (e.g. businesses who won't remove me from their spam list) is frustrating, especially when the senders keep appearing in the daily quarantine report. Could this be solved by using Thunderbird as an IMAP client (and “whitelisting” the senders in Postini so they don't appear in the quarantine report)? Is there an easier or more elegant solution? TIA.

Email nofifications not working in Google Calendar.

After three great years my Google Calendar has simply stopped sending me email notifications. I have tried the help page here and many unhelpful forum posts here. This seems to be a prevalent problem. I wish I could switch to something else but Gmail is what I use heart and soul for work. Any others solved this problem? I am all ears. Thanks for your time.

Why is my (and my friend's) server dropping emails?

Why is my (and my friend's) server dropping emails? A friend and I run small businesses in Hong Kong. I'm using a well-known hosting company in Florida, he's with a big U.S. registrar that offers hosting. Both of us have been losing emails from clients in Hong Kong, other parts of Asia and the U.S., including messages from people on our white lists and who we've received messages from before. We've asked our respective hosting companies, but they haven't been able to explain this, and I haven't seen any black helicopters recently. Does the great hive mind have any suggestions for fixing this? For bonus points, would moving our email accounts to Google apps help?

Gmail/explorer 6 weirdness

Gmail Hosted Apps attachment weirdness. I administrate a hosted apps account; recently a MS Publisher file was sent to everyone in the organisation, all were able to open it originally, bar one person, who for some reason, when attempting to download, could only download as a zip file. Tested the same situation in Firefox on XP at home (the situation occurs on IE6/XP) and it downloads fine. Tested with another account on XP/IE 6 and i find this is the same case, i.e. only able to download the MS Publisher file as a zip file. Has anyone else experienced this weirdness? is this due to Google withdrawing support for IE6?
