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]

Getting more data from an email address?

I've inherited a list of approximately 5000 email addresses from people who subscribe to a quarterly newsletter. I only have their email addresses, nothing else. Most of the email addresses are from their work/company/school and the rest are generic ones (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc). I would like get more information from these addresses, such as first name, last name, job title, industry, country, etc. Of course, from some emails, I can already figure out their name and company, but would like to have this done automatically and also add more data, such as industry. Can the hive recommend a service that would allow me to do this quickly? I don't need to have all of the information, just as much as possible. I'm willing to pay to have it done. Thanks!

So I've got a stack of CDs with all kinds of miscellaneous data, but most importantly, 5 GBs plus of .pst files from Outlook. Is there an easy and/or cost-efficient way of aggregating these files into a searchable database?
