The Gmail search box is already a powerful tool, especially when using advanced filters, and will now show associated email aliases in the results.
When you search for an email address in Gmail, we now display all emails associated with that specific address and any aliases it is part of.
An e-mail alias is simply an “alternative address for receiving e-mail” that is often used for: official name changes, preferred names and as a result of attention, acquisitions or subsidiaries.
The results are subtracted from the lines to, from, cc and bcc, as well as appearing anywhere in the message section. Google explains that this feature will prevent users from having an ongoing list of email changes. Labels are not affected.
With this change, searches will be easier and the results more comprehensive, as users do not have to remember everyone̵7;s aliases and run multiple searches for each.
That said, users will still be able to search for exact accounts by using quotes around the current address. Gmail search email aliases are rolled out to the following workspace levels:
Available for 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
