Since I am unable to comment, the "Inbox sections" will show up if you change the Inbox Type from "Default" to any other setting. Then the "Categories" will disappear and replaced with "Inbox sections" (followed by "Inbox unread count")

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)

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.

I'm afraid you cannot. Every mail client has their own way of putting message details as part of the quoted reply. Some clients may allow you to change that. There is no way to configure the Gmail web client to quote replies a different way. If you want to do that, you'll need to use a different client (such as Outlook).

Try going to Settings - Accounts and Import - Send mail as. Select "Reply from the same address the message was sent to" You still can change the address you want to reply with before sending the email. I tried this myself and works fine.

In the latest Gmail : Simply click on the image and it'll start a slideshow. Slide through the images and click on the Download icon on the top-header. It's better than downloading the entire page and then finding appropriate images in the folder. Or right-clicking on each individual image, especially if the images are large.

This related to security settings which IT department of companies set in order to make documents handling more secure. Contact your IT department. They should be able to provide a solution to this. It has got nothing to do with Google figuring out what is secure/ not secure documents.

...that does not seem to be possible in the current Gmail interface. Correct. So what you have to do is: Revert to the "Old Contacts" by leaving the "Contacts Preview" screen. After that you just follow the steps you already know and are familiar with. I will go through them though, just in case. Go to your email and copy the recipient list by ...

Your screen shot shows you're looking at the Primary tab. Conversations categorized as Social or Promotions are also in the Inbox, but are displayed on the matching tab.

Google is promoting Hangouts, which is now their default settings. You can always revert to the older layout. Look at the bottom left corner of your browser and click on the "Revert to the old chat" link This will take you to your familiar layout:

I'm afraid no, there is no setting in Gmail to change the reply indicator from "Re:" to "RE:".

Navigate to Settings -> Filters and Blocked Addresses and check if you have a filter in place that would apply to the missing emails. It is possible that you have a filter with "Skip the Inbox" checked, which would archive the email in the "All Mail" area.

I've had this issue as well using Chrome on my MacBook Pro. Completely restarting Chrome fixed the problem for me and I haven't seen it return.

While creating tabular message for emails, I first create them in Word or Spread sheet package(with proper tabulation), then a simple copy paste always worked for me. Ubuntu had no issues, but Windows 7 missed with borders when pasted at email body...!

The only way to disable this is by logging out of your email and logging back in. When you do log back in, do not check that box. I don't know what browser you are using, but make sure that you take that account info off of your saved passwords list. If all of the above won't work, I think your last resort would be deleting cookies/saved passwords (if ...

So, I realized there was a setting that was making all emails drop into trash on Apple Mail. This in turn was feeding back to Gmail and causing all messages to be moved to trash. This article told me the correct setting to be changed in Apple Mail preferences->mail box behaviours. Specifically: Drafts unticked, Sent unticked, Junk ticked, Trash unticked. ...

Unfortunately, no, this isn't possible with just Gmail filters. You can search for label:Follow up, but that switch won't work for a filter. (Mostly because labels are actually applied to individual messages and not conversations.) At best (short of a Google Apps script) you can save a search for label:Waiting for is:unread, which should find you any ...

The example in the Google docs is of the form: from:amy OR from:david So, I would certainly go with your 2nd version. However, I think it might be getting confused by the spaces (ordinarily a delimiter) so it might be searching for something like: (parentheses and AND added for clarity) from:David AND (Kadavy OR from:Lloyed) AND from AND (Speakeasy OR ...

The easiest thing I've found is to select "Show Original" from the message menu, then search with my web browser (Ctrl+F) for "Content-Disposition". That jumps me to the part of the email message where the attachment (or one of the attachments) is encoded. One of the pieces of meta data is the filename.

We faced the same issue. I've found the easiest way to just copy the filename is to: Click on the download link, as if you were to download the file. When the pop-up window opens, copy the filename and cancel the download.

No. I can think of two alternatives. You can reply/forward the messages to yourself (after editing the reply). If you change the subject you can "break" the conversation (or simply delete the original message after your reply/forward). The other is to set up an IMAP client to your Gmail mailbox. Some of those will allow for editing messages already ...

I wrote a gist that disables the cmd+enter hotkey in gmail (also disables ctrl+enter on windows) in Firefox. First you have to install greasemonkey Then go to this gist and click the 'raw' button (or install directly here). Greasemonkey will install the script and you are good to go.

Changing the "replyTo" instead of the "from" may work in your scenario. You should be able to customize both the Subject and the replyTo in a Google Apps Script. So, here are the components and steps. (It appears that you know most of this, but here it is for the benefit of others.) An external person sends an email to a specific address. (Preferably ...

As of September, 2015, you can now easily block specific email addresses without having to create a filter. One of the options in the extended menu is now "Block {sender}". This will cause any new messages from that address to be marked as spam. It does not, however, send a message back to the sender. You can review the list of addresses you're blocking in ...

You can try Upsafe for this purpose. It does not make any changes to your Google account, it simply transfers the copies of your emails to another cloud. The app is cloud-based, so you can access your data from any device.
