    Heh, I did! But the operator isn’t documented–b/c it doesn’t work. Since I wrote up that post, a search for lang:Russian turns up zip from my mailbox, unfortunately. Had others try the same and they reported mixed results as well.

    But thanks for digging up that post! I knew I’d been hopped up on this idea for awhile!

    This is something I’ve been wanting for a while. Not just the translation of messages, but to be able to detect something that (in my case) is non-English so that I can just delete it and never see it. Not even have it appear in my Spam folder.

    I also saw the lang: operators mentioned this week at this post http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2009/05/gmail-added-message-translation.html
