This largest webmail service already has been popular with more than 1.8 billion people in the world. Gmail provides highly secure mail service with large storage of 15 GB. Gmail users can easily access other webmail services along with Gmail in the same desktop and mobile. Gmail increases its User-friendly mail features several times for its users.
Access multiple Gmail account in single browser:
Users can access multiple Gmail account in a single browser without sign out and sign in hassle. It’s simple as like as open a shortcut. To add multiple accounts, you need to click on your account image on the top right and choose sign in a different account to switch the account. No need to enter the password further, if you have already saved it in your browser. The same process you can follow in mobile browsers and Gmail applications.
Open Gmail in Outlook:
Gmail can be accessed in Outlook also. If you are passionate to use Outlook mail service, you can synchronize the Gmail account with Outlook. Through this facility, you can connect up to twenty Gmail accounts in one Outlook (Open setting > view all outlook setting > mail > sync mail). You can access the Gmail account from third party applications.
Send mail from other account using another account:
You can send mail from the multiple accounts with signing in one Gmail account (Go to Settings > Accounts and Import > Send mail as).
Block sender and spam folder:
You can easily block someone, who is sending you spam mail or you don’t want to get any mail from that sender. Simply open the sender mail and go to the ellipsis menu option beside the reply icon and block that username. Any future mail from that sender will be sent to your spam folder.
Gmail offers similar preview features like outlook. To turn it on go to setting > Advanced > Preview pane > Enable. After refreshing the browser window, you see the four-line drop-down menu on top of the right side. Click here to see your message preview.
Dots are invalid:
Gmail ignores anything written after plus (+) sign in the username, for example, [email protected] is similar to [email protected] If you send mail to both these Gmail addressees differently, both time single users will receive the mail. You can sign up a Gmail id with plus (+) sign, but sometimes you can get trouble to sign up at other sites through your Gmail id. Because this is a special character and some sign-up accounts don’t allow these mail ids come with a special character.
Canned response feature:
Sometimes you get tired to give a similar reply again and again. Canned response messages are for repeated replies. To turn on go to Settings > Advanced > Canned Responses > Enable. Scroll down to save changes and create a new email for the canned response. Click on ellipsis in the lower right corner of the message and choose a canned response option. You can save it here and if you want, you can change it in the future.
Sign out remotely:
You can access Gmail from multiple computers at the same time. But sometimes you forget to sign out from a public computer. If you remember later or you get any notification if someone misuses in your absence, you can sign out your Gmail account from there without moving to that place. Also, you can check your last account activity through the same option.
This facility is given for how important your message is. Starred messages will be highlighted in your inbox and you can easily search through using the filter option. You can read and reply to your messages later at a convenient time.
Forget to attach:
Gmail gives up to 25 MB file attachment facility in one mail. Forget to attach the facility is given in Gmail for your erroneous mistake. If you mention in your message phrase that, “I have attached” or “I have included” and you forget to attach your file, during sending the mail Gmail will remind you to attach your file. It can save you from careless and unprofessional activities.
A strong and rememberable password is most vital for your email. Email password should be unique before creating a password you must keep in your mind about recovery options. Once you forget your password, you can easily recover it by choosing option “Forgot password”, there you can Recover your password in three easy steps, through previous mail id which you linked with your Gmail account during sign up, linked mobile number with your Gmail account and the last option is security question answer, which you provided at the time of creating Gmail account.
