Need Help With Email? Ask Your Email Questions Online
Hi my name is ***** ***** I can assist. When you look at the "All Mail" folder, are they list chronologically? Do you see the most recent e-mails as once being in your Inbox?
Yes the date is when they arrived. You can select the one's that you know were in the Inbox by checking them on the left and then clicking "Move to Inbox". It will label them with the Inbox tag and move them there.
It looks like your messages were somehow Archived. Try this:
Click on the All Mail folder, then in the Search bar at the top paste this filter: -label:inbox -label:sent -label:drafts
That should be all of your Archived e-mail.
Let me know if that works for you.
The email will be chronological so you can scroll back to the tune you need. You might add -label:spam. In fact, try adding the -label: for every folder you have since you archive mail would not be sorted or labeled.

It will exclude the mail that is in those other folders. Your archive mail won't have a label. There is not a way to search for when emails are moved.
Were you able get the emails back in the correct spot? Just checking in.
Just getting back with you. How is the situation with the Inbox e-mails?
I found this on the official word for Inbox emails that have lost their labels.
"Gmail doesn't have folders. All your messages are saved in All Mail. Everything else (Inbox, Starred, Drafts, user-labels, etc) are just "views" into a sub-set of the messages in All Mail. And since there's only one copy of any message, if you delete it from any label, you're deleting the only copy, so it's gone from all of them. If you delete a label you remove that "view", but the messages are still in All Mail.
When you Archive a message, the only thing that does is remove the Inbox label from the message. The original message is still in All Mail along with all your other messages, and you can apply labels to them to make them easier to find later. Remember that Archive is an action, not a location."
GMail has an undo option but only for the last action. I'm sorry we couldn't get you what you wanted but it seems like the email is still there, it will just need to be searched for.
