I was just looking for a similar feature in IFTTT, but then discovered that Zapier (kind of) supports this. They're not proper regex's but it does pattern matching of sorts https://parser.zapier.com Might be good enough for what you need!

What you see in the To field when you receive an email is the way your contact has you in their address book. So if you send your emails just from john.doe@gmail.com, but your contacts have you saved as John Doe in their address book, when you receive an email from them, you will see yourself as John Doe <john.doe@gmail.com>.

Top right of Google Chrome should have your name just beside the minimise close buttons etc, you can log out there, and then it should give you the option as to which account to log back in with.

You will need to add the parent label as well, even if the sub-label is supposed to be nesting. When you look at the list of labels, you will see the parent and sub-label (or child label) as separate choices. This is why when you click on a parent label it will only show emails tagged with that. It will not include messages "under" that tag. That ...

No, Gmail only has 1 copy of each email and it is only in one place no matter how many labels it has so if you delete it from one view you are deleting the one and only copy of that email. How Gmail stores your email: In GMail, to remove a message from the Inbox, you remove the Inbox label - just select or open the message and click the Archive button ...

It appears that you have a misunderstanding of one of the best features of Gmail: labels. Every message when Gmail ingests starts with the INBOX label. You can use filters to add labels to them, or in your case stars. If you tell Gmail to skip the inbox it strips the INBOX label from the message. Messages can have multiple labels, which is a great feature ...

As in Kzar's answer, you now need to provide details for an SMTP server which will be used to send the mail. As of writing, however, you can simply use the Gmail SMTP server, as long as you use Google two-step authentication. So just for completeness, the full steps: Gmail settings, Accounts and Import tab. Add another email address you own Type name ...

You can use Yet Another Mail Merge to produce what appears to be line breaks by breaking up the message content into different columns. Wherever you need to see a line break, insert a column with a Break # header. The cells below the header in that column should be blank. In Google Sheets for instance, your columns might end up looking like this: Email ...

The feature you request doesn't seem to be available but you can get something very similar with a small trick using filters. Go to Settings->Filters and add a new filter. In the From field insert -me (this way all messages not sent by you, i.e., all incoming messages, are selected) Continue and in the following screen choose the field Apply the label and ...

You can't sync between accounts. Sync works between an e-mail client on your computer or mobile device and the account on the server (using IMAP). But forwarding or POP fetching can not sync between server accounts.

no, there isn't. What I do is pre-end one highly used label with "_" so it sorts to the TOP of the list for each access. You could do that with 8 or so labels to make them easy, everything else would need scrolling to find.

Based on this answer in Google Support, the "last seen" time indicates the last time someone was "seen" by Google Hangouts. They don't necessarily need to have been talking to someone at the time.

It means that if you close that tab/window and then open gmail again after sometime*, you will NOT need to log in again. *sometime refers to amount of time your log in is valid - typically couple of month in case of gmail.

Nothing lasts forever. You stay signed in as long you don't clear your browser cookies or manually sign out. If you use any third party junk cleaner tools like CCleaner to clear browser cookies, that will get you signed out as well. Gmail's session cookies have a relatively long expiration date as you can see here: This is discussed in Google's official ...

As of October 2012, GMail includes its own multilingual options which may help here.

You can use the after: and before: operators to search for messages within a date range. Combine with from: to specify that you want only messages you have sent. Also, throw in a in:anywhere if you want to include messages in the Spam and Trash folders. So something like: after:2004/04/16 before:2005/06/01 in:anywhere from:youremailaddress@gmail.com ...

I Noticed this happened to me today and I did not change anything. All I did was respond to an e-mail in my set fonts and styles that I have set as a default and it made my text small. I dont see the enable a new default text styling option from the Labs.

For those of you using Mac (in my case copying code from xCode), a simple copy/paste into Apple's default "Mail" client keeps all my code's formatting and colors intact.

There's probably not a way to answer this. At least, not by us mere mortals. The algorithms Google uses to identify possible spam are secret (and for good reason). They're also constantly adjusting them to address new threats and to prevent false positives. More than likely, a recent adjustment to the algorithm is making the messages you receive look more ...

You need to login to http://plus.google.com with your credentials, and then go to your Profile settings. In the top of the Profile settings page you can see your profile image and name. Place the mouse cursor on your name, and the message Click to edit your name appears, so click it.

Gmail filters may not be sophisticated enough for that. Further, filtering stuff that has the "spam" label may not work reliably. (Filters act when a message arrives; a message marked spam may have been processed before that. You'll even be warned to that effect. Works fine for search, though.) The best I can come up with based on your question is a filter ...

The solution is to properly set filters. Namely, when you create a filter, you have to choose option to archive the message e.g. to skip inbox. After this, the messages in thunderbird will no longer be duplicated in the inbox.

I started experiencing the infinite loop upon login after I added https://mail.google.com to my list of trusted sites in IE11 (Tools → Internet Options → Security → Trusted Sites → Sites → Add) Once I removed https://mail.google.com from my trusted sites list, the issue cleared up.

Filters and labels are related, but different things. You create filters to automatically label(and thereby "move") the message. There's no way to automatically sync your Thunderbird filters to Gmail web.

There is no such list. But You can send feedback to Google, click the gear while you are in gmail and click send feedback - note not all accounts have that option , if you don't , click the gear , click help , click send feedback.

The following GMail backup/restore utility was recently modified to be able to deal with a Google Takeout file to restore messages to an account. It's the best option available I think. https://github.com/jay0lee/got-your-back/wiki - free Gmail backup/restore utility, currently command-line only

Gmail no longer support using the Gmail outgoing mail server for Send Mail As if the account is not another Gmail or account or a Google Apps account. You'll need to contact whoever hosts the forwarder you use and see what they can do for you.

Gmail is “free” because you are tracked by Google for their data/marketing purposes and are automatically signed into everything else as a result. Hate to break the news to you but when you sign into Google it is not for one specific service; that is just a “carrot on a stick” to get you to login. The beginning, middle and end goal of Google’s “free” ...

OK, there is a silver lining here. I just set this up and it is working fine: You do not have to use an SMTP server that matches the domain of the email address. You only have to use an SMTP server. So as long as you have access to any SMTP server, you can set up forwarders or an unlimited number of email addresses.

In straight-up Gmail, no, unfortunately not. The only way I can think of to do it would be to get a third-party email client that supports IMAP and allows for quick folder creation like that. Then you could create the labels (folders) in that and get them in your Gmail account. You could always dump the client afterward.

My bookmarklets Below you find a link to two bookmarklets I posted on jsfiddle. If you drag them on your browser toolbar, when you open a Gmail message, clicking a bookmarklet pops up a window with sender and recipients addresses (including CC's).

Not directly. You'll want to use a third-party email client that can import mbox files as well as connect to Gmail via IMAP. Thunderbird, with the ImportExportTools extension, looks like it would suit. Once you import the mbox files and connect your Gmail via IMAP, it then should be as simple as dragging-and-dropping between the accounts.

That's as simple as creating a Gmail filter: Matches: to:(thatotheremailaddress@gmail.com) Do this: Apply label "The Label I Want" There are a couple of different paths you can take, but this is probably the simplest: Go to Settings and choose "Filters". At the bottom of your list, click on "Create a new filter". In the "To:" field, enter the ...

I am quite surprised of all the complicated answers implying some extra tools! Every email you receive has its address added to "All contacts" (as opposed to "My Contacts") in the Contacts part of Gmail. Export that one and you're done (or I missed something in your question).
