If you have Gmail, and someone emails you a lot of documents as Word attachments, what's a good way to search through those documents for a certain word or phrase?

Where is that presentation? Was it attached to an email? Or in Google Docs? If you’re not sure, you may end up searching several places with the same query in order to find it. With the new “Apps Search” lab, we just made that all a bit simpler.
Once you enable it from the Gmail Labs tab under Settings, the “Search Mail” button in Gmail will say “Search Mail and Docs” instead, and your search results will include matching documents and sites in addition to email messages.

From my experience. I just sort the mails by attachments. I think he meant as attachments here. https://imagicon.info/cat/15-33/smile.png
