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.
Last month, Gmail rolled out the new compose interface. Today the Gmail team released a new feature to compliment this. If you’re using the new compose window, within the next few days, you should be able to see a new button that lets you quickly link to files stored in your Google Drive.
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.
Sparrow, the popular mail client for Mac and iPhone has been acquired by Google for $25m. It should be a matter of time before Google integrates its features into Gmail. We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
Your iPod and iPad comes inbuilt with Apple’s mail program which allows you to configure your email accounts including Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. However, if you’re an exclusive Gmail user or is your main email account, like many people I know, you might want to consider the official Gmail app from Google. The latest version of the app includes: Notification Center support with Banners, alerts and lock screen notification options “Send-as”: Alternate sender support, if configured within Gmail Persistent logins so that you don’t need to keep logging in at very frequent intervals For those who have Gmail as their main email account, a good idea is to configure Gmail to allow you to fetch email from your other accounts and / or send email from a different address.
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.
