Gmail filters only act on messages when they arrive. There's not a way to do what you want with filters. For a pure Gmail solution, you can accomplish almost what you want by judicious use of search and the Canned Responses Lab. That will make sending identical messages to a bunch of people relatively easy. Another option would be to use some third-party ...

Facebook does not provide a way to have groups that anyone can join instantly. Someone already in the group must add them, or they can request approval from a group admin. The likely reason for not providing this is that it would attract spammers. Old-style open groups had spam problems and they did not even have the new group notification or chat ...

Using @Al Everett's advice, you can use vacation responder for this. (Sorry Al, feel free to add this answer and I'll remove mine :) ) Go into your Gmail settings and looks for a section called "Vacation Responder" This will allow you to enter an auto-response for all incoming messages. Just uncheck the "Ends" box to make sure it will always be on. ...

One issue with the gmail autoresponder is that it only replies to those emails sent directly to the gmail account in question. This does not include accounts from other domains that are linked to the gmail account. You can get around this, and enable the use of better filtering, by using the following process: Create a new gmail account for the autoreply ...

Future new documents should then ...

Not currently possible in the new Google Docs interface. You can still, however, use the old Google Docs interface, where you can set a default font. Create a document in the old docs interface: https://docs.google.com/?action=newdoc Open the Format menu Select Document Settings... Set the font etc. the way you want Check "Make these the default styles ...

A very simple low-tech work-around is to maintain a file (e.g., Word, outlook task, etc.) with a list of these hyper-linked phrases and copy-paste the one you need into Gmail. Another option that should work in most email clients like outlook is to define a simple signature for each such hyper-link.

I have been looking up any related research and all the sources I have found seem to have only theoretical examples. One research paper lists Delicious (which you mentioned) as a real world service example, but the other related work seems to be theoretical or things that have been abandoned since. There's also a paper on a Firefox extension called HyperBK, ...

You will have to write some code to accomplish your goal. Your app will log in to the Gmail server, grab all the new messages, alter them to add whatever parameters you want, and then send them off to the new address. I've done something similar using C# in the past.

The Google+ API is read only at the moment. Google is working with select partners to provide the Page API which allows writing to the page. You may be able to work with one of these partners (see http://www.google.com/+/business/3rdpartytools.html) to get what you need. You can also request access to this API at ...

Apart from Google Books, which allows you to search by ISBN to find both freely-available and paid versions of titles, the software you request probably does not exist (yet). It does not, however, allow you to download local copies of the books. For that, you should check Project Gutenberg which provides a number of download formats. If they do not have ...

I created in November 2012 this little app. For the sake of it not being made in vain, here's the code plus a sample Google Spreadsheet. It will handle team scores only: function onOpen() { // get active spreadsheet var ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet(); // create menu var menu = [{name: "Add team stats", functionName: "teamStats"}]; // ...

Pre-/Post-events sound like project planning, which made me think of MS Project. Google found me the Microsoft® Project to Google® Calendar tool. It's been a while since I used MS Project, but I'm pretty sure you can link events like the way you've suggested. I'm pretty sure that other import/export ways are possible (e.g., export from MSProject to iCal, ...

The only way of doing this would be to "Name" your contact with the email address. For example, in the example you have provided, your Contact would look like: Name: john@stewart.net Email: john@stewart.net (I tried it just now and this method seems to work for me)

You can do it with directly from Gmail's interface. You will have to add a forwarding address and then you can create a filter that will forward only specific mails that contains some words in the body or whatever else you want. By enabling the forwarding address it doesn't mean that all your mails will be forwarded. You'll have to do that in order to ...

You may wish to look at the SortPlaces Firefox extension. According to its extensions home page: SortPlaces is also designed to work with the SyncPlaces extension to automatically sort your bookmarks when you synchronise them. However, I'm not sure that it will perform the automatic categorization that you appear to be looking for.

You may want to check Skloog. I haven't used it but I checked the demo pages; there seems to be Sorting functionality.

In principle you can use command-line tools cURL or wget to do this. Something like the following using curl curl -c cookie.txt -o file.html -d "option1=value1&option2&value2" http://www.foobar.com/someformpage/
