My name is ***** ***** I will answer your question for you.

Here is how to get older emails in Gmail.

1. You can use the 'before' keyword in the gmail search bar. For example, type Before:2013/01/01 should get you emails in 2012, and earler. Just change the date to what you are looking fore.

2. You can also use a date range (this would find all emails in your inbox from August 2014):

After:2014/08/01 Before:2014/09/01

I hope this answers your question.
