With Gmail as-is, no, there is no option to filter messages so that they're permanently deleted automatically. Frankly, I think this is a good thing, as Gmail filters can be very powerful. Could you imagine the kerfuffle if people had filters deleting messages from addresses that they actually wanted to receive without informing them or allowing them to ...

I've been thinking about this for nearly 5 years now and it finally hit me. You can't. Not in Gmail. But you can install an email client such as Thunderbird, sort the mails by subject, and then you can see the number of messages in a 'thread', IYCMD.

The Google Labs tab now has a "Quote Selected Text" extension. When enabled, if you highlight the text you want to quote before hitting Reply, the compose box will come up bottom-post-wise, and minus the entire quoted thread that you didn't select. As of this writing, there's no blank line between the attribution ("On Monday, muhuk wrote:") and the quoted ...

Cause The "web login required error" means that Gmail is not recognizing your password or you are signing from a new location or device or you have enabled 2-Step Verification for your account. You need to generate an Application specific password for MsgExtract. See Generating an application password when 2-Step verification is enabled in Gmail ...

This is normal. This is simply the Gmail code in your open browser session checking your mailbox every once in a while to see if it needs to update the message list. Gmail uses AJAX extensively; it doesn't require a page load to do most of what it does.

Both emails are, in fact, the same for Google. Google processes all emails with periods by removing all of them and then sending the email out. If you sent an email to the following emails, they would all be directed to the same person. ray.mckenzie@gmail.com r.a.y.m.c.k.e.n.z.i.e@gmail.com raymckenzie@gmail.com Note: This is only true for Google, so ...

This was driving me nuts but I only wanted monospace for certain mailing lists and wanted to be able to adjust font-size too. After looking at the existing solutions and suggestions I ended up creating a new Chrome Extension (free & open source) that applies CSS properties by GMail label. I already had GMail rules to apply labels to my mailing list ...

When enabled it adds a button when you are composing a reply. with it disabled there is a blue button label "Send" with it enabled there is a blue button labeled "Send+" and a uncolored button labeled "Send". Hovering over the "send+" button you get the phrase "Send ...

The best way I've found to do this so far is using the Mixmax addon. It'd be ideal not to have to install an addon, particularly because of the extra bloat it adds, but it seems easy enough with this addon to ignore everything else ;) It specifically supports Inbox (as well as vanilla Gmail), and has the exact signature option I was looking for: It seems ...

If you use Google Chrome, you can sign into Chrome Browser. In the top right corner, where the minimize button is (on windows), you will see a picture of a person. Simply click on the person and sign into your google account and it will keep you signed in between reboots. This will not work if you are using Incognito Mode. As Incognito Mode will ...

The issue is that the star is associated with a message, not the entire conversation. So when you use: is:starred it returns all conversations where at least one message in the conversation has a star. -is:starred returns all conversations where at least one message is unstarred. Unfortunately when you look at the list in the GUI all the Conversations ...

Use "show original" from the message menu. I'll bet you'll find a line in the message headers like From: "GMAIL" <your-contact@example.net> Why Gmail isn't picking up the name you've got for them in your Google Contacts, I don't know. Perhaps there is a very slight difference in the email address.


2

What you have tried should work. Although "officially" you should use the label: operator to search within a label, and labels are not case-sensitive. So, the following should also work: label:test -is:starred Note that if your label contains spaces then replace spaces with hyphens (-) in your search phrase. However, if you've enabled multiple stars then ...

Gmail works like that per default - it shows all messages in a conversation grouped together - including your own, sent messages. If you don't like that, you can turn off conversation view: Click the gear icon → Settings On the General tab, scroll down to the Conversation view setting Select Conversation view off Scroll to the bottom of the page and ...

I missed something basic. My Windows timezone was set incorrectly @ +10GMT. Changing it to +8GMT and then adjusting the time in Windows resolved the Gmail issue.

There is no resend option. There is one alternative to your problem. You can forward the email and send it to the same person. Emails were not implemented a resend option compared to smartphones because all emails get sent to the receiving email address. If an email address is invalid, the email will still go through, but the hosting provider will send you ...

If you are pasting the text from elsewhere instead of manually writing it in the compose window, there's a chance that you are also copying hidden characters that create those spacings. I suggest you to recreate the case by composing a mail the same way and then try to compose it again but instead of pasting the text, just write it manually on the compose ...

I expect that that's derived from the "About me" section of your Google profile. Simply go to https://myaccount.google.com, click on Your personal info under "Personal info & privacy" and edit accordingly.

Here is another tip. Create a label called "Read Emails". When you have finished with an email, use the MOVE TO button to move the email to that label (this will remove the inbox label). This way, you know that anything in your inbox needs attention whether it is read or unread.

Unfortunately neither the GmailApp API nor the advanced Gamil API have any way to read your filters let alone what filters were applied to an email. Assigning each filter a unique label to assign will let you see their effects going forward. However there is one more way to look at your list of filters aside from the gmail settings. You can export the ...

Best to use a third party tracking tool like Yesware : which inserts a tracking pixel into your email, and will tell you when it was opened Sidekick (now Hubspot Sales) : does the same or if you want to track attachments Orangedox for Gmail: which allows you to see what files were viewed/downloaded/previewed Note that none of these are going to tell ...

Short answer The email messages headers could be modified in each "step" of its route, some servers just add a timestamp to help trace the email but the keyword could vary so reading email headers is complex. There are online tools to help users to read email headers. To find tools like these you could use Google to search for [email headers online tools] ...

It depends on what you want to do with the messages once you have them stored "locally". If you just want to file them away, possibly to restore them at some future date, I'd say use Google Takeout. Google Takeout export the messages in mbox format, which many email clients can manage. If you want to be able to work with them, I'd say use a local email ...

No, there is no setting in Gmail for inserted images. In fact, the only setting that has anything to do with images is simply whether to show them inline or to ask before displaying them.

I'm years late, but I believe you can: Export mbox files from mailman. Import them into Thunderbird Use an IMAP connection to move the messages from your local Thunderbird set up to your gmail account. And then you'll be able to search like a pro.

The correct category to assign via a filter, would be "Personal".

I've been able to resolve this issue by enabling GMail's "Undo Send" feature. CMD + Enter still triggers sending, but I now have a 10-second window to catch it before it is actually sent.

I'm 90% sure that this is an Apple problem that they need to iron out with a hot patch or update for their Mail application, that is if you are accessing Gmail through the iOS application? If you are, I would recommend removing your account from the Mail app and install the Google Mail application off of the App Store. In fact, even if the issue gets fixed ...

Just sign out from your Gmail account and then login only that one which you want to work with. The account association is showing through the browser.

I've looked in Gmail, Google Contacts, Google Plus and Groups and couldn't find this information. As a Google Apps Admin, however, I can lookup the user and see their groups from their User Account Page. If someone else has a better answer I would love to know as well.

This link also works (at least since 2012, still working today) and could possibly be easier to remember than the other ?ui=html link - just add /h/ instead. http://mail.google.com/mail/h/ It seems to redirect to https anyway, or just use https: https://mail.google.com/mail/h/ Also, the other link will work without the &zy=h part, also maybe ...

The email headers contain IP addresses that in certain cases could be used to know the geographic location of the user device and the servers used but this could not work for all cases like users using a web email client. In other words, it's possible but can't be reliably done for all senders. To do this you will require to use Google Apps Script or a ...

The problem disappeared after a couple of days. I guess it was a minor bug.

This is presumably "Office 365". As far as I known, the "Send Mail As" functionality is the only way to be able to send from Gmail using another address (at least in personal Gmail). In which case, you'll need the SMTP details, as for any external email account. Reference: POP and IMAP settings for Outlook Office 365 for business. However, this sounds ...

Try "editing info" of the Outlook email address in you Gmail settings. If there's a checkbox "Treat as an alias," check it.And, if you've added you Outlook email address to your Gmail one in the past 30 days, it will be forwarded. (There's always 30 days of forwarding)


3

You don't need to mark those messages already received as spam. But if you did for any reason, just move it to Inbox (not spam) and block it again. Plus Gmail deletes spam messages after 30 days, so don't worry about it.

You can check your Outlook.com mailbox settings. You can choose to Don't Forward . This setting will not forward your emails to any address. If you want to send incoming emails to other address (you can specify list of addresses), choose Forward your mail to another email account option. For your concern, you should choose option 1.

This question has been answered here, but I'm unable to close it because of the bounty. In short, you may use Gmail's SMTP server for your alias address, as long as you have enabled two-factor authentication.

After nearly giving up, I finally figured out how. I used the Chrome Developer Tools, but you should be able to use any Dev WYSIWYG editor. On the settings page where you have the option to use the Rich Text Editor for your signature, use the Dev Tools to inspect the text area. Now you can simply edit the HTML within the signature directly! To get my work ...

Actually you canNOT. For security reasons the original gmail account (google domain) will always be shown. In your case the best thing to do would be to use your my.name@gmail.com account as your main account, create there an alias as lolz@gmail.com and have either email checked from that account or everything forwarded from your original lolz@gmail ...

There's no a specific shortcut, however, while composing the body of the email, hit TAB button twice (the first hit moves you to the SEND button, the second one takes you to the clip icon for attachments and Bam! now you're able to paste the path for your attachment.

I would use something like Stylish for this. (It's available for Firefox and for Chrome.) Then depending on your level of CSS skills you can use a theme that fits your needs, or create a new one that changes exactly what you want to change.
