To do this, go to the Play Store and check whether Gmail has a new version, and if  there is, touch Update to download and install the latest version on your phone. Then you can apply some tricks that g.mailsignin.org shares below.

Merge multiple accounts into one inbox

If you have multiple Google accounts, each time you want to check email in other accounts, you must log out and then log in Gmail many times. This is an inconvenience. That is the reason why Google added the feature combined inbox to Gmail. The latest version of Gmail allows you to see the inbox of multiple accounts simultaneously.

merge-multiple-accounts-into-one-inbox

To use this utility feature, you have to add a new account to the menu on the left, just belows your avatar. After entering the correct login information, all incoming messages will appear in a public inbox in the menu on the left which allows you to see messages of all mailboxes simultaneously. However, if you want to see an individual mailbox, you can still switch between accounts by pulling-down the mouse pointer to the menu at the top corner.

Quick manipulations

In the latest version of Gmail app for Android, you can perform tasks easily and quickly. For example, if you want to archive messages, you can simply swipe to the left or right, or select multiple messages by tapping on the image representing each letter.

quick-manipulations

When messages are selected in this way, some actions will appear at the top of the screen such as Archive, Delete, Mark as read/unread. Other options are possibily accessed in the menu More ( a symbol with three vertical dots). Go to a specific conversation to choose Reply and Reply all at the top – right corner of the screen.

Sync messages

You will not receive new messages if your messages are not synchronized correctly. To synchronize data, go to Settings, and touch Accounts. Now you will see accounts associate with your device, tap an account to enable syncing.

Sync-messages

In Gmail app, access the Settings menu, then click on the email address that you want to set up the synchronization. In which, you can set up how many days you want it to sync your messages . If you have problem in syncing, try to disconnect that account and then connect again. If the problem can’t be solved, you should uninstall and reinstall application.

Smart Search

Search feature in the application may look simple, but actually, it is not as easy as you think because it is almost similar to the web. For example, enter “older_than: 1Y” or “older_than: 1d” into search box to find older messages within 1 year or 1 day in Gmail.

Smart-Search

Google provides a list of searching keywords in Gmail app as well as on the web. For example, type in “is: important,” , it will give you the result Important messages or “is: starred” to identify starred letters…

Mute Feature

While you are on your way, if you have notification of new message, you have to open the application to check mail immediately, but the message is not important, which is so time-consuming and inconvenient. Thus, Google has added Mute feature like on the web to the Gmail application.

Some simple tricks to “recall” a sent email


Sometimes, after hitting “Send” and email, then you suddenly realized that there was a mistake. You worried that the receiver might misunderstand the content of your email. In this case, you should use these two simple tricks to “recall” those sent emails.

Readers can use MS Outlook, which has been integrated into the Microsoft Office software suites.  This app provides “Recall” feature, which allows you to “recall” sent emails.

To use this feature, go to the “Sent email” folder and open the Message window that you’d like to resend, then click on Office (File Menu). After that, you move to Info tab and select the Message Resend and Recall item.

Message Resend and Recall

Click mouse on Resend or Recall then select Recall This Message feature in the menu below. Next, select Delete unread copies of the message to delete the copy of the unread message or Delete unread copies and replace with a new message to delete the unread message and replace it by the new one.

Recal-this-message

Then you select the Tell me if recall succeeds or fails for each recipient so that the program will notify you if the messages recall succeeds or not. After your selection, press the OK button to apply.

In addition, there is a feature that many Gmail users should know called “Undo Send“.

To use this feature you must log in your Gmail account and go to the Settings card, then you enable the “Undo Send” function in Gmail Labs by selecting Enable.

Undo-Send

Once this feature is enabled, the “Undo” option will appear after the user clicks mailing. However, users have only 5 seconds to click on “Cancel” button to cancel the previous command and recover the e-mail which was being sent. After those 5 seconds, the recovery of emails in Gmail will not be done.

What are Cc and Bcc in Gmail?

When composing mail in Gmail, you will see Cc and Bcc at least one time for sure, but you don’t know what they mean. In this article, let’s find out what they exactly are!

When entering email address of the recipient in “To:” box, you’re certainly curious about these two lines of words: Cc and Bcc on the right of “To:” box. Have you ever tried to click on them?

Cc is actually short for Carbon copy.

We use Cc feature to send one email to many people at the same time and these recipients can see the list of other email addresses which also receive this email.

cc-bcc

What is Bcc?

In fact, Bcc is short for “Blind carbon copy”.

Bcc is almost the same as Cc. However, the difference is that recipients added in Bcc can not see the list of other email addresses to which this email is also sent.

It means, in the recipient’s email address, there’s only him/her.

When do we use Cc or Bcc?

  • Use Cc when you’re not afraid of the fact that the recipients know you send that email to many other people.
  • Use Bcc when you don’t want the recipients know that you send that email to many other people.

The recipient will know that you’ve send this email to many other people

1. Add more recipients directly in the “To:” box

Besides, you can enter Google homepage : https://www.google.com and click Gmail on the Navigation.

Limit to check E-mail in public places

Using a public computer which you can’t control, you’ll never know what programs have already been installed on that computer. This will be very dangerous if that computer is installed Keylogger program. Keylogger is a program which is used to record manipulations you have typed on the keyboard, after recording and saving these manipulations, it will send the record to an email address predefined in the program.

Use the secondary E-mail

Are you worrying about checking mail on a computer which is not safe enough or installed Keylogger? This will be a solution bringing safety for you if you usually have to check mail in public places.

Create a new Gmail account and choose the password different from the main Gmail account’s. After successfully creating a new Gmail account, log in main Gmail account, choose Settings and move to Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

Gmail filters can be used to forward sending e-mails and receive another e-mail. This is a major threat to your account as well as the security of your Gmail. The examination of this filter also received little attention, but to ensure the safety, you should also check if there are filters that you didn’t create or not, if so,delete them immediately and change the password for safety.

Always be alert and careful

When checking one e-mail, you’ll easily be taken in by fake e-mail if you don’t read the content and check from where the mail is sent carefully. If the contents of e-mail containing suspicious links or attachments that do not know what purpose of the sender is, you should not click on links or download attachments from unknown origin e-mail.

Another case is that the sender can change the address “From” into anything. The sender may impersonate Google’s e-mail to deceive you, so when you receive e-mail like that, the first thing to do is checking if you had performed any tasks before or not. If you suddenly receive an e-mail requiring you to change the password, it means that’s absolutely a fake e-mail.

Note: Gmail will never send you a request to change your password without reason or request from you. Therefore, if you suddenly receive an e-mail requiring you to change the password, it means someone is trying to deceive you by fake e-mail and usurp your Gmail account.

If you check e-mail in another place or on another computer, make sure you log out your account after having finished checking mail.
Apart from the aforesaid things, you may refer to Gmail account security with a 2 layers password. This is the safest way of protecting your Gmail account.

Using Chrome and Firefox to display notifications when new messages arrive


Chrome and Firefox have separate systems of notification of this browser and Gmail takes advantage of  both of them very well. Whenever you have new email, as long as the browser is open, you can quickly be informed by a small box near the Clock bar (for Windows) or on the upper right of the screen (for OS X). When clicking on the notification, you will be immediately redirected to the new incoming email, then, you can view or answer it in an extremely fast way. Instead of using separate mail management application, you can use this Notification feature for its convenience.

To enable this feature, login to Gmail, click on the cogwheel icon (Settings) General tab Desktop Notifications. Click the “Chat notifications on
Here you have 3 options:

  • New Mail Notifications on – see notifications when any email is sent to the mailbox
  • Important Mail Notifications on – only report messages marked as important
  • Mail Notifications Off – no notification

Once completely setting up, then click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the screen to complete.

Cancel sending an Email

Surely, there was one time in your life you wished that there would be an Undo button to destroy the content of a wrongly- sent email, such as a letter of confessing to his girlfriend but he suddenly realized that’s not the very moment to confess, or he misdirected it to another person.
Luckily, Google understands that and has made the dream come true. Although it’s still in the experimental stage, but you can enable it by going to Settings Labs Undo Send Enable, and then click the Save Changes button. Note that you can only cancel the mail in a few seconds after pressing the Send button.

Some common shortcuts

Ctrl + b: bold text
Ctrl + i: italic text
Ctrl + u: underlined
Ctrl + Shift + 7: Create a list of numbered bullets.
Ctrl + Shift + 8: Create a list of typing bullets.
Ctrl + k: Fast insert a link to selected text.

F: forward mail
E: mail archives

Shift + u: mark as unread
Ctrl + S to save a draft of a letter which is being drafted

Exploit Auto-Categorization feature

Last year, Gmail was added auto-classification feature email based on various sections, such as advertising, forums, messages updated from new pages or main mail (including mail from friends, relatives, colleagues, offices …). By defaulting this feature, it will run automatically and be pretty accurate, but if you want to customize it, it is still doable.
For example, when you find a letter from a close friend, but it strays into the “Forum” inbox, you can choose that email, drag and then drop it into the inbox entitled “Primary“. Similarly, if the advertising messages happen to reach the “Primary” inbox, you just have to drag and drop it into the “Forum” inbox. After finishing moving, you’ll be asked whether you want to apply the classification like that for future emails or not, select “Yes” so we do not bother to do it again.

Besides, by defaulting, only the current messages in the mailbox “Primary” will be notified through the mobile device (if you are using Gmail app provided by Google, ether iOS or Android). If you want the app to notify all incoming messages, regardless of whatever mailbox classified is, run the app up, go to Settings (gear icon) Notifications All new messages.

Quickly insert canned content into mail

This is a feature of Gmail that allows us to insert a piece of content which has already been prepared to the mail quickly. Canned response is useful when you need to send the same content of letters lots of times, so you will save a lot of time. To activate it, go to Settings Labs card, then turn on Canned Response and do not forget to click “Save changes”.
Now, just draft a new message and click on the small arrow located in the lower right corner of the composing mail window, choose Canned response New Canned response to name and save the contents. In the future use, just go to the menu Canned response and you can see things you have prepared before, if you want to insert a content, you just have to select it.

Archive email

Did you know that the letter which was read, in addition to be erased, you can store (archive) them? This feature is great because you can guarantee that your mailbox is not only always clean but also fully retains important emails, do not worry about when you suddenly need them but they were deleted. To archive messages, all you need to do is select the desired e-mail and click the button Archive as highlighted in the image below. When you want to find them, you may use the Gmail search box.
Also, you can setup in order that email can be automatically archived right after you have replied to a letter. So you will not have to implement it yourself anymore, save time!
To install, go to Settings Send and Archive ShowSend & Archive” button in reply. From now on, whenever you reply, you will see a new button to apply the aforementioned feature.

How to select all email in the inbox at the same time

This trick is tiny but extremely strong, it allows us to select all messages in one inbox with just one mouse click. Maybe you thought that the check mark at the top of the line used to select all email is enough, but in fact it only select the email which is being displayed, while the series below are not. To select all, you must click on the “Select all conversation…”

Offline Gmail

Did you know that you can read and reply to messages even when you do not have Internet connection? You can use the Chrome browser Gmail Offline Chrome combined with Apps to carry out their actions. All these actions will be put in a queue and as soon as the network is connected again, they will in turn be executed.

Mute a conversation

Tired of tracking of emails not important from your colleges while you are not related to them? No problem, Gmail allows you to turn off the notification of a certain conversation to avoid inconveniences.
In selected conversations, go to More Mute. From now on, you just see emails which are sent to your own or when your address appears in the To: or CC:

Add to-do list

Normally, you use the other apps to create a to-do list, but with Gmail, the Google has already integrated this feature for us. You go to the main interface of Gmail, select a certain letter (for example, a private letter in which your wife tell you to buy food for kids), click More Add to Tasks.
Immediately, a new task will appear in the list of things to do, from which you can add the date and time expired, notes … In case you are using the reminder application supports synchronization with Google then this action will also be synchronized down and notice when it’s time to remind. Later, if you want to review emails related to that action, click on Related on line and then everything is finished!

6 fast ways to clean up storage space for Gmail

Currently the total amount that a Gmail user has is 15GB, increase 15 times in comparison with when this service launched in 2004. However, some users have found that this storage space is not large enough, especially, people who often have to send and receive attachments. Let alone, the 15GB aforementioned is also shared with Google Drive and Google+ Photos. So how can we clean up Gmail? Please refer to some tricks below.

6-fast-ways-to-clean-up-storage-space-for-gmail

Delete messages containing attachments

Gmail search bar allows us to find certain kinds of file, for example, if you want to find messages with MP3 attachments, type the filename: mp3, or if you want to look for document, then you type: filename: poison. After the search is complete, delete all the messages that were no longer used or letters that were too old. If the file is important to you, it’s ok, you absolutely can save it on your computer before deleting. As an attachment’s size can be up to 25MB so delete files in this way can help you to clean up you storage space effectively.

Delete-messages-containing-attachments

Additionally, with Office files such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, if you still want to store online, you can convert them to the original format of Google Drive. By this way, you can view your documents wherever you are, manage them, share with others while the size of the file will no longer be charged to the 15GB limit anymore.

store-online

Search by file size

Previously, this feature didn’t exist in Gmail. It’s not until recently that Google has added it to its service. By using” larger” phrase, you can find letters containing attachments larger than a certain size. For example, larger: 5m means files which are larger than 5MB.

Search-by-file-size

I have tried with my own account and the result returns 20 mail containing attachments larger than 5MB, so if you delete them, then you will have 100MB of storage, which is a big number. If you do not often clean up the storage space, the result returns even much more mail.

Clean Trash and Spam folder

Messages that you delete from Gmail still don’t disappear completely. They will be moved into a separate area called “Trash”, and only when you delete mail in the trash, the new storage space is actually free. To access this area, you can click on the “Trash”, and then select all emails here and delete them. Don’t forget to delete the Spam folder / Junk mail where spam messages that Gmail automatically filtered out for you are stored. In certain period of time, this directory can contain up to hundreds of letters.

Switching to plain text email

The email that has more pictures, colorfully decorated is a letter in HTML format. Usually, a letter like that does not take much space, but imagine you have hundreds, even thousands of letters, it absolutely becomes a “nightmare”. Therefore, if you do not wish to use HTML, just set up for Gmail to send mail in plain text, so we’ll save more capacity.

To set up:  in the message box, click on the small arrow at the bottom right corner of the screen, select “Plain Text mode”.

Switching-to-plain-text-email

Delete old emails, read emails

We use the Gmail search box again. In this way, you do not have to search for letters manually. All you need is to type “older_than: 2y” to display messages that are older than 2 years. And if you want to clean up more, you can try “1Y”, which means the limitation is within 1 year. When the results appear, you select all of them, click the Trash icon.

In addition to using keywords older_than, you can enter other phrases such as title, sender … so that the cleanup is more efficient. For example, I use the phrase “g.mailsignin.org older_than: 1Y” to display notification letters from g.mailsignin.orgwhich arre older than 1 year, then I will clean up a large amount of storage space.

Want to find and delete read messages, you use the keywords “in: inbox is: read”.

Download backup

If you can not delete the email for some reasons, you can download them to store on your PC and then delete them in Gmail. By using an application on PC, such as Thunderbird or Email application which is available in Windows or OS X, you can download this letter, then export to save it in a certain place. Way of exporting depends on the application, this feature will be typically put on the File> Export.
