Why Gmail Is The Best!


Hi Friends,
Here’s my notes of what makes Gmail different and better than other web based email or the email addresses that come with your internet service.

  • Don’t delete messages, archive them.
  • Lots of space (7.5GB and growing). Many services give you only 1GB.
  • Quickly search and find messages (because you didn’t delete them, you archived)
  • View your messages as conversations (all emails, replies, & forwards will be joined into a conversation to keep you focused on the topic at hand)
  • No Spam! Gmail has some of the best “spam” filers. I don’t remember the last time I received spam.
  • Brand New: Priority Mailbox- allow gmail to auto sort your mail into Important emails, regular emails, and emails which you star as important.
  • Label emails rather than put them into folders. You can give an email multiple labels to help you sort and organize.
  • Use a filter to apply labels and actions automatically as mail arrives.
  • Free IMAP and POP access to your mail when you’re offline. Some webmail services charge for these features.
  • And much more… aka “labs” with new features and additions.

Gmail is always growing and changing. But I love using it.
Personally, I am using a Macbook Pro with an SSD Hard Drive so space is a premium and I’m glad I can keep my 4 GB of email and attachments online and not cluttering up my computer.

Got a gmail tip of your own, post is and share it with the rest of us.
