As your email inbox grows in size, after a while managing it can be quite a tedious task. And even worse is if you attempt to search for attachements in there. This is why Xoopit is a real blessing!
Last week, MakeUseOf reported more domains being stolen, all owned by Gmail users. Brandon from GeekCondition reported a proof of concept. However, Google has replied stating that Gmail has no vulnerabilities.
If you’re bored of the plain old white Gmail background, then one option is to use the Better Gmail Firefox extension which added a few themes. Gmail now comes with several different skins that you can use to beautify your inbox. In a quote from their blog post: We wanted to go beyond simple color customization, so out of the 30 odd themes we’re launching today, there’s a shiny theme with chrome styling, another one that turns your inbox into a retro notepad, nature themes that change scenery over time, weather driven themes that can rain on your mailbox, and fun characters to keep you in good company.
This week has been a rather active week for the folks at Google. You can now publish to your Blogger blog directly from iGoogle. Additionally, you can now choose to embed comments below your post inself instead of having them on a new page.
Gmail added a new feature that has come as a real blessing for anyone who sends attachments. This feature is available under Labs in Gmail. I decided to give it a test and it still isn’t perfect.
It’s crossed the limit finally. You have now more than 7GB storage space with Gmail. Storage space crossed the storage limit a few days before.
In a spectacular new development, you can now sign in to your AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) account to chat with your AIM buddies from Gmail. Your AIM buddies will populate your Contacts list, and are searchable just like your Google Talk contacts.
It was about time that this happened! The dull and dry interface in Gmail just got an enhancement with Group Chat and Emoticons.
For as long as Gmail has existed, it has been an invite only, which meant that you couldn’t get an account unless you managed to find some kind soul to invite you for one. During the early days invites were rare and you could even find them for sale on eBay. I remember getting my invite from some forum with the condition I had to give back, which I did.
The What’s New page on Gmail lists a new feature being offered by Gmail. Get mail from other accounts Now Gmail can check for the mail you receive at your other email accounts. You can retrieve your mail (new and old) from up to five other email accounts and have them all in Gmail.
