No, you cannot change the sort of messages. They're always shown in date descending order. Gmail is built on the premise that you don't need to delete anything and that the search powered by Google should help you find any message you could possibly want. But you need to know what you're looking for. You can do a simple search on some text you know is in ...

The only way this is possible trough CLI is using browser like w3m. It is not exactly one line command solution, but is the only one without graphical environment as far as I know. However you haven't stated what OS you are using so I am not sure if you will have it in the repos or you need to install it manually. But if you use Linux chances are that it ...

Looks like a bug. You should report it to Google directly (see how here).

This question is kinda off topic. One suggestion to get this person off is to contact Google support directly as if someone has accessed your account that is a serious issue. From personal experience you get to flak to real people and it's super helpful! Google account support: support.google.com/accounts

I fixed it by disabling the Hola extension in chrome.

There does not appear to be a configuration option for this, and a look at Google support forum confirms this. I've made a bookmarklet that changes the display of email list to put the time first. Unfortunately there is not enough room to show both date and time, and messing with the layout of Gmail pages is likely to result in something else breaking ...

Yes, there is a way to do this. Google have documentation about this on their help section: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/32046 The username may become available for other users after Google's 'Grace Period'.

I can't add comments at this moment but, why don't you just stop using the account? You could also create a filter to delete all incoming message and also create an auto response. Other than that, I don't think that gmail has the option to hold account names.

I tried resizing the image and forwarding the message, but this did not work for me. I found a simpler fix: I opened the email in a new window (there is "in a new window" icon right next to the "print all" icon) and it automatically wrapped the message. Plus you have the advantage of making the window larger or smaller and getting good readability.

The post from artlung has the right idea (the easiest way to do this is to edit the filters as XML), but the XML code he posts actually does not do what the original poster requested.

Your Google Form decides which column to store the data in - you do not control this.

That sounds like exactly what should happen (and which Ramhound alludes to in his comment). Yahoo Mail has no knowledge of the message you sent if it was sent by Gmail. All that "Send mail as" does is put a different sender on the message; it doesn't change where the message came from. If you want a copy of the message to be in the other mailbox, you'll ...

I'm not at all sure that Google's spam filters would be triggered by an import. SPAM filtering is normally done at the receipt time. There are, however, Linux tools you can train with a bunch of emails, still don't think you would be able to use that to clean out the existing MBOX though. You could instead try opening the file in Thunderbird or another ...

Adding to the good answers above, you can use nested labels to further emulate a typical folder structure.

To add to the answer above, to emulate "putting emails in a folder" it can be a good idea to also select "Skip the inbox (Archive it)". That way, the emails are not stored in the main inbox, while you can click on the label (emulating the folder) to bring them up.

The new Google Inbox seems to do what you want. It lets you snooze a message to a specific time. While the message is snoozed, it does not show up in your inbox.

Without more details, I think that the best option is to do the bulk operations in http://mail.google.com just before you could left alone your Thunderbird instance for several hours, as the sync process could take "a while" and consume "a lot" of resources of your computer.

Yes it is expected behavior from Gmail.

It's not possible. Gmail mailboxs don't have a user detailed activity log. Only the access to the mailbox are recorded in the Last account activity.
