Gmail today unveiled a new inbox view that brings back control to email. The new Gmail inbox will automatically sort your emails based on who you receive them from and all are easily accessible by a familiar tabbed interface. Your key emails will automatically show up in Primary and serves as the default inbox that you can access either from you desktop, Andoird or iOS mobile app.
Gmail’s advanced search feature is extremely powerful. I usually use this for for searching for emails from recipients or with certain labels. Today, Gmail rolled out a new feature on searching through your emails.
Composing emails in a desktop client like Thunderbird or Postbox allows you switch back and forth between windows easily. Look up your other emails for reference or just let the Compose window sit in the background while you check new mail. By contrast most web-based clients don’t give you this flexibility and Gmail hopes to remedy that with the new compose feature.
Barely two weeks since its preview launch and Outlook.com already has 10 million users. I migrated to Outlook.
Yesterday, we told you how to get your Outlook.com email. Outlook.
One thing that I love about Postbox is it’s complete support for tonnes of email services. However, sadly, Postbox has turned paid. As a result, I decided to give Thunderbird 3 beta a shot.
Fed up of spam in your Inbox, especially from forums, social networking sites, websites etc. where you shared your email at one point of time? scr.
Ever send an email out only to realize you’ve forgotten an attachment or even worse, it’s gone to the wrong person! Now, in Gmail Labs, you’ll find a new feature that will delay the sent email for five seconds before it is sent. During this time you will be hit the Undo button and stop the email from being sent.
One thing ever Gmail user loves is the conversation view. However, one painful experience with the conversation view is the "Mark as Unread" feature which used to mark the entire conversation as unread, which means that you had to figure out exactly which was the first unread post, the next time you opened up the conversation again. This has always been a painful experience especially if you have ten or more emails as part of the conversation.
Anybody who uses Gmail on a slow internet connection knows that it is one of the worst painful experiences you can ever have. Gmail keeps telling you that the page isn’t loaded properly and well you’re only option is switching to the “Older Version” or to the HTML version. So, when I came across Postbox about a few weeks back, I decided to give it a shot to see if it eases the pain.
Opened my Gmail today and was surprised to find a brand new menu at the top of my emails. Two new buttons have been added to the interface, viz. Move To and Labels.
The voluminous storage that Gmail offers you ensures that you never need to delete any email. Instead you can archive it and save it for your records. The usual process would be to reply to your email and then hit the archive button.
