Gmail Important Labels

No, this is not another question on how to remove the Gmail important label. In fact, I actually think it does a good job of stripping out email that, while not junk, is not important to everyday business. The problem is, I can find no way to use it, like creating a filter to see only the important emails. Anybody have any ideas on this?

Hello Jay,

Thank you for asking about this, as it turns out that it is indeed not possible to search in Gmail labels - although it should be. We apologize for the inconvenience and our developers will certainly look into this.

With apologies,
