Do you know if after a period of non-use usernames return available for Gmail? No, they do not. And some Google services (eg Blogger) have promised that this will not happen. However I do not see that there is a problem: we are not running out of numbers, so it will always be possible to get name.surnameNNN accounts, although NNN will become ...

An IFTTT recipe will do that and more! And, may be easier to setup and manage

You cannot star items from Inbox, and you cannot pin items from Gmail. But you can find one from the other. After you find a list of them, it's easy to star all of the pinned messages or pin all of the starred messages (select all, do action). You just need to search using "label:pinned" or "in:starred". Here are some examples of my searches. Note: ...

Inbox by Gmail and the Gmail web app present different user experience paradigms, but you can still interact easily between the two. It is obvious that the Gmail team doesn't want you to have problems switching back and forth. From Inbox, find your starred messages by adding in:starred to your search. Here is me searching for a starred message from Joshua. ...

I don't think you can star items in Inbox, but you can find pinned items in Gmail with the search operator "label:pinned"

In Gmail I was able to use this search: "to:(specific person's email address) -from:(specific person's email address) from:me" This found messages sent to a particular person with no replies from them on that conversation. Downside: My company sends a lot of messages to mailing lists that include all of our employees, and these messages also match this ...

As of June of 2016, none of the methods here worked for me. I did, however, find a workaround that might work for some: Open your Google account (FYI, this page has the following header: Control, protect, and secure your account, all in one place). Look in the Sign-in & security box and click the Signing in to Google link therein. On the ensuing ...

Not within the Gmail web client. I would recommend creating a Google Doc, pasting the contents of the message into it and marking it up there. You could then take the URL of the Doc and put it in a reply to that Gmail thread addressed only to you as a quick way of referencing it in Gmail. If a group of people are collaborating on this content, using a ...

Not with Gmail all by itself. You can't edit messages once sent/received. At best, you can forward the email message to yourself with the text highlighting you want. Otherwise, you'll need to look for a third-party solution.

You just need to wait it out. I've had this exact same issue (twice now!). Each time, I fiddled around with my postfix and dovecot settings for a few hours in vain. In the end, it was just a matter of giving it a few hours for Google to see the new cert.

No, in Gmail web client you can't have a filter or particular message generate a Hangouts message or a desktop notification specific to that particular message. In the Gmail Android app you can assign ringtones to labels. I've taken the steps below from this Google help article. I've used this combined with a filter to automatically assign the label to the ...

This a bug whatever is doing the validation. RFC 822 theoretically allowed separate CR and LF characters, which are not line ends, but RFC 2822 removes this feature. RFC 2822 section 2.3 says "CR and LF MUST only occur together as CRLF; they MUST NOT appear independently in the body." What the programmer did is RFC 2822 complaint and your version is not. As ...

There is no setting in the Gmail UI for a time based auto response. The Email Settings API does allow you to enable, disable, change, and poll the current state of the autoresponder.

No, Google Apps does not include a mass mailing or marketing tool. Google Apps accounts are subject to both sending and receiving limits. If you can stay within these limits you, or a 3rd party, could build a tool using Apps Script, Gmail, and Sheets in Google Apps. When paying for some of the other services you mentioned you are also getting their ...

Personally I really like how the Gmail autoresponder works, so my approach would be to leave the autoresponder as is and work with the inbox@mydomain.com address differently. Google Apps has two alternatives. Delegated access. Create an account for inbox@mydomain.com and access it from your main account using delegated access. Downside: This will require ...

The entire message counts against your Gmail/Google Storage quota. To see the entire message: Open the message in the Gmail web UI. In the upper right of that message you will find a small down facing triangle that says "More" when you hover over it, open this menu. Select Show Original This opens the complete message in a new tab. If you save this file ...

You should be able to do a search, and download an archive with your past search. A lengthy process but will let you know at the end.

This option is only available using a browser as documented in the 'Sign out of all sessions' of this article. I just tested and this option can be found in a mobile browser. I used Chrome on my Android phone. Start by going to mail.google.com. Select the menu icon on the left, scroll to the bottom, choose the Desktop link, then follow the same steps you ...

Within the Gmail filter, for Size, choose "greater than 1 Bytes". For action, choose "Mark as read."

Not without using a third-party app, or using something like a label with a date. You'd still need to manually move the messages back to your inbox. See also: How to find an email in Gmail that was snoozed in Google Inbox?

Unfortunately, no, there's no activity log within Gmail that's accessible to users. The only "undo" option there is, really, is what's available immediately after performing an action. So, recovering what you happened to have labeled "inbox" doesn't seem practical. At best, you could look through your messages in "all mail" for the past month or so and see ...

If you are using Chrome/Firefox/IE hit F12, navigate to the console tab and paste the following, then hit return. $('.bodycontainer table').remove(); $('.bodycontainer hr').remove(); $('.bodycontainer table').remove(); $('.bodycontainer hr').remove(); $('.bodycontainer table tr:first-child').remove(); $('.bodycontainer table tr:first-child').remove();

No, not really. There's no setting within Gmail that would let you turn off retrieval of new mail while you have a network connection. I can think of a couple of workarounds that could get you close to what you're after. Use the Gmail Offline Chrome extension. It offers a slightly simplified view of your Gmail mailbox. It occasionally polls Gmail in the ...

In Gmail, all of your messages always go to "All Mail", hence its name. What you seem to be experiencing is that some of your incoming messages are skipping the Inbox. What is most likely happening is that you have a filter that includes the action "Skip the Inbox (Archive it)". "Archive" is just a special action which removes the "inbox" label from ...

If the message wasn't received by Google's servers, there is no way it can be delivered to your consumer Gmail account. Start by using the email log search within your Google Apps account to find additional details on what happened to these 'missing' messages.

Whether or not something is a 'downside' would be a matter of opinion and can vary from person to person. However I can say that Google Apps does still lag behind consumer Gmail for some features. For example Inbox came to consumer Gmail several months before it was available in Google Apps, and Google Spaces currently can't be used by Google Apps accounts....

First step: Make sure you aren't sending actual spam. I recommend reviewing this wiki article on the USA's "CAN-SPAM Act of 2003". Even if you aren't in the US, Google is and must abide by US law. PTR and reverse DNS lookups are outdated and I highly doubt Google uses them. These applied when a company used one server to send and receive mail. In the ...

No, you will not lose your Gmail account. But you will not be able to access your associated YouTube channels.

There is a "custom keyboard shortcut" feature you can enable in labs through Gmail > Settings. Once enabled you can use ";" for "expand all" and ":" for "collapse all" or setup other shortcut you want to use instead.

Unfortunately, it seems that Google has changed its policy for Google Apps Email service. I also noticed this new behaviours a few weeks ago. Before, I was to use a "Send as Gmail" (I don't remember the exact wording) functionality.

While SPF and DKIM are important first steps, I would recommend you now implement DMARC. - A checklist on how to deploy DMARC can be found here. - Additional articles and videos describing DMARC can be found here. The TL;DR is - SPF & DKIM provide basics ways of allowing a receiving mail system of knowing if the sending server is approved to send on ...

@Adeel - If it's a configuration issue, this Mail Tester will point it out. If it's not a configuration issue and you follow their Guidelines then it's either a content issue with google or they got your IP and/or DOMAIN flagged in their system and they only way to get out of it will be to have users constantly click the "Not Spam" on your messages and add ...

Have you tried creating the event in Google Calendars and sending the email from there? So if you click on a time period in Google Calendars, and create an event you can invite people to this event from your email to their email. This should send them an invitation to the event.

Apart from all the steps that were mentioned in that answer, you have to take care of another thing. Email providers like "Gmail" use "Spamhaus" to gather information about malicious websites and domains. You need to make sure your domain name is not listed on Spamhaus. If your domain is listed, all emails originating from your domain will always go to spam ...
