Working on a project, I was confident that I had the necessary documents on my website. Well, come to find out, whatever service I used is no longer storing it. I thought I had it in Evernote (I now keep everything in Evernote). No luck. I was desperate and unfortunately the document is well over 2 years old, so I just wasn't sure if I would ever find it. Well....I turned to GMail because I remembered emailing all of the information to a friend. (Is that sad that I remember that from that long ago?)
I clicked on Sent Mail, typed his name in the search box, and waited. Eighty emails popped up. I kept going back and back and back. The entire time I thought that there would be no way that GMail would still have this two-year-old email on file. And then I made it to the last page of emails in my search.
It wasn't the last email, or in this case the first email I've ever sent him, but close enough. I did a dance! I am quite excited to have found it. Or should I say relieved? There are certainly things that I dislike about GMail, but this is definitely one reason to ❤ it! It saves everything! Unless you permanently delete it, that is.
