When sending an email in Google, the "CC" field stands for carbon copy, and "BCC" stands for blind carbon copy, meaning that the recipients are "blind" to the other email addresses. You do not need to enter an email in the "To" or "CC" fields. When your message arrives, your recipients will be able to see that the email was sent to their inbox, in addition ...

I’m not sure I understand your question, but if you have conversations view on, if you want to reply to a message in a conversation, the box will open right below the respective message, even if there are other after it.

There is a Google Gmail API. It can both read and sent emails. It uses Oauth to authenticate. Google doesn't want you sharing credentials. Here is the site for it: https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/

It’s probably the “Send mail as:” setting that is the problem. To change it: Click the gear in the top right. Select Settings. Click the **Accounts*8 tab. In the “Send mail as:” section, locate the email address you'd like to edit. Click edit info next to the address. In the “Name:” section, specify what you’d like your name to be and click Save changes. ...

You could create a filter, if you can find a search that will hit only the emails you want, and have all matching messages deleted? Or at least "never send to spam" but instead moved to a special folder if you want to review them too. I thought that maybe some characters that never show up in your language like ф peraps? But apparently Gmail doesn't search ...

More information on this... I see that when I press '+' right end of tabs on top (After Primary, Social, Promotions,Forums etc.) I see a list , in which the other tabs , which are visible are selected and the item in the list "Updates" is not selected. Thus you can ignore "Updates" label or you can even allow those emails to be in a separate tab by ...

This is the way to fix this very frustrating problem as stated before. I logged into both Gmail accounts separately—not at the same time—and then clicked through to this link while each account was open, which allows access to your accounts. As soon as I did that SEPARATELY for each account, it worked.

I noticed that Linkedin has access to hundreds of contacts over many years that would be in one of my gmail accounts, but I never gave Linkedin permission to access my Gmail or ever send emails. However, my mobile device has a Linkedin app, although I have almost never logged into it! The mobile device itself has Gmail permissions, by way of necessity to use ...

Does the individual who sent you the document have you listed as "having permission"? Google docs have various separate permission settings for who can view, edit, etc. The individual may not have specifically given you permission to either view or edit the document. For example, one can give permission to view but not edit. Another setting may allow ...

You have to insert the respective contact several times, for each email address. If you insert the contact by hand (i.e. by writing the name of the contact in the To/Cc/Bcc box), if the respective contact has more addresses, the list of addresses will be displayed and you can choose the one you want. For the second one, start writing the name again and ...

I realise that Gmail provides these 4 labels as part of Inbox: social, promotions, updates, forums. So if a user has not selected to specifically see any of these 4 labels as tabbed category, then all those emails which should lie in that category will show up in Primary label of Inbox. In the below screenshot, as you can see, I have not selected "Updates" ...

I have 2 personal GMail accounts and also one account for my work, where we use Google Apps. Surprisingly, in my 2 personal accounts, the behaviour is what you want - i.e., when clicking remove formatting, it falls back to your default settings, including any changes you made in your default settings. In my work email, however, I have the same problem you ...

You can’t. You have to have your Calendar/Gmail browser tab/window open to receive the pop-up notifications. To get notifications on your computer, you need to have Google Calendar open in a web browser tab or window. Source (under Change your default notification settings → Computer).

Create the template in your editor and view it in a browser. Then in the browser, select all, copy and paste into the Gmail compose window and save. This worked for me.

Is the clue in "When I call people with smartphones, they see my old photo on the screen." When you call me, I expect my phone to show me the picture of you from my contacts book, not from your profile. Granted, when I set you up in my contacts the first time, it's possible that the initial values were taken from your Google profile. But after that, ...

A simple solution if you already have a server (e.g., VPS) is to set up your own forwarding / relay mail server: Set up a mail server program (for example Postfix) to forward incoming e-mail to Gmail, and Set up Gmail to route outgoing e-mail through your mail server. Here's a quick tutorial: ...

Check the Profile picture under your Gmail 'Contact' page. If the picture seems to be old one then try changing it. Else, try changing it in 'Google+' and check your results. Click on '+you' in the top of your gmail page and change the profile picture. Hope this helps.

You are trying to turnoff one of the strengths of Gmail. A message can have multiple labels. When Gmail puts the work and contatct1 labels it is doing that because the contactx label is a sub-label of the work label. Multiple labels make it easier to find messages/conversations because you can use the presence or absence of labels to filter the results of ...

I have spent 2 hours bashing my head against this issue. Finally though I've stumbled on a solution of sorts. Convert your message to plain text. Paste the text from MS word. Convert the message to rich text. Reinsert features such as bold, underline, italics, and font/size differences. It's the best I've been able to do so far, but it saves a lot of ...

By default, only basic keyboard shortcuts are enabled in Gmail. You have to enable the additional keyboard shortcuts in settings. You can press '?' in Gmail to see a popup list of all keyboard shortcuts and which are currently enabled or disabled. You can also enable & disable the additional shortcuts in the popup that appears. See more detail here: ...

I also observed this problem with mail from "Windows Mail"—the mail is in HTML with a lot of inline <span style=".."> tags (the author likes to jazz up her mails with lots of "effects"…) The only way I could read it was to copy-paste the content into Notepad (so it gets converted into plain text and then it wraps normally. It would be useful if Gmail ...

Google will likely keep your information until the end of time - or until they see fit. Google has hundreds of millions of users (350 as of April 2012 - Larry Page), a number which has likely grown substantially. When you delete your account, Google will likely move this information off of their live servers (eventually, some mention that this is after 60 ...

You can turn off conversation view in the settings. It's on the "General" tab. You can treat labels like folders; just "move" your messages to a label rather than "add" a label.

I took care of the problem by fixing the filter I had in a way that declares that only when the mail is for me apply the rule. So when I send a mail the rule does not apply and the sent mail is automatically archived in the sent mail folder only.

It used to be possible as long as you could verify the email Google sent to the reply email address you were adding. However, now Google won't allow you to send from a domain other than gmail unless you have a Gmail business account, or you can use SMTP auth. If you have a user name and password for the SMTP server of the domain you want to send from, you ...

You can hide only first level labels from the label list, which will include all of it’s children, but you can’t hide the children on their own. The only hack I can think of is to make your sub-labels as first level labels and name them something like FirstLevelLabel_SecondLevelLabel instead of nesting SecondLevelLabel under FirstLevelLabel. The rest of ...

You can also do this if you have a hosting account and this is where the pop3/imap account is coming from.

Unless you can get the person who sent the invitation to re-send it to your "normal" Gmail address, I think your only option is to work with the attached invite.ics file.

If you do this search repeatedly or generally appreciate brevity, you can use "l:unread" or even "l:^u" instead of "is:unread" (or "label:unread"). Of course, you can combine the quest for unread messages with others: "l:^u from:tim" finds all unread messages from "tim", "l:^u l:^t" finds all unread starred mail, "l:^u l:^k subject:hi" finds all unread ...

OK I seem to have found the issue. It seems that Google somehow updated its security policy this summer, and as a result, you have to First, use "add another email address" under JohnDoe@example.com to add teamA@example.com to JohnDoe@example.com, in which step you'll not be prompted to authenticate Then, go to your personal gmail and use "add another ...

If you want to do the opposite of to:(example.com) -to:(sub.example.com), you need to do to:(sub.example.com). If you add -to:(example.com) you'll also exclude all the sub.example.com as well.

There is no setting in Gmail that would do that, no. I suppose something like a Greasemonkey script might be crafted to do something like that.

You can set up forwarding the regular way, but of course that will no longer work if you close your Google Apps account. Once you close your account, any messages sent to it will be lost. If you have access to the DNS records for the domain, you can set it up to use a cheap/free email service, and forward messages from that service to your Gmail account.
