I put together a redirect for searching just 'back n days' that does the simple (and for me, most common use case) Writing a search for ‘inbox NOT including today’ is slightly counterintuitive and somewhat of a pain so I put together a custom redirect of my own that brings up the stuff from yesterday: http://joereddington.com/back/0 That redirects you ...

Google has a multi-account feature for switching between accounts, but what works better is to create a Chrome profile per account: In desktop Chrome, go to Settings > Users then "Add new user..." to add a user profile. Tip: Name each profile after the account that you're going to log in to, and give it a distinct icon. Tip: Give each profile a distinct ...

If you hover over the Inbox button in gmail, it will give you a drop down arrow. You need to change this from "Stared First" to "Unread First". This will still reserve your conversations, and they will just pop to the top of the list when someone replies. Just look for the stars to see the important one, or add flags to add more organization to different ...

Google support suggests that if you're migrating from one Gmail/Google Apps account to a different Gmail/Google Apps account, just use POP3 between them. (Directions here) However, you want to only copy/move some of the messages. I would use a third-party email client that can connect to Gmail via IMAP. (Thunderbird would probably be my choice.) Connect ...

That information is with your Google Account profile. There are several paths to get there. One way is to click your profile photo while you're in Gmail to open the account change menu, then click on "Account". Or you can go directly to the URL https://www.google.com/settings. The recovery e-mail address is on the "Personal Info" tab and editable on the ...

I've looked into this in the past (out of curiosity, not in an attempt to actually access this information) as a Google Apps admin for a previous company. The answer is that the only way for an admin to access this information would be if they changed your password and logged in as you. For this to happen they would almost definitely need a very good reason ...

Short answer: no, your Google Apps admin can NOT see your web search or youtube history. I'm a Super-Admin (highest level) for my company under Apps for Business, and I can't find any YouTube or web history activity via my Admin console. What I can do is see a log of email going in and out, and enable or disable Chrome history syncing for my users (but ...

Filters only work on messages as they come in, so what you want can't be automated with just Gmail. To do what you want you'd have to save the URL for a custom search and run it once in a while. A search for label:@Matt is:unread will find all of the conversations you're looking for. Then you simply select them all and move them as needed. You can even put ...

Unroll.me was the culprit. I must have inadvertently told Unroll.me to unsubscribe from emails for that particular google group. Turns out that Unroll.me's action on "unsubscribe" is "mark as read and unceremoniously dump in trash". That's very much a wanted behavior, but a confusing one if you goof up. I found it by cmd+F searching in my unsubscribed ...

That would not be a dictionary, they list definitions . That would be a thesaurus which would list synonyms. Depending on your browser there are various extensions you can get to do this.

No, you can't do that. There is nothing in Gmail's settings to restrict from where your account can be accessed. Really, you shouldn't have to. Google already does some checking to see if your account is being accessed from wildly divergent locations. According to the Google Online Security Blog: You may remember that a while back we launched remote ...

Unfortunately, Gmail filters are only able to do a normal delete. So, seems you can't achieve what you want using standard Gmail features. You have to manually empty the trash.

Install the Stylish browser extension. Click the Stylish icon and go to "Manage Styles" Add this style. It will configure Gmail to use a fixed-width font for plaintext messages: @namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml); @-moz-document domain("mail.google.com") { /* change the font family and font size of body message */ div[class="a3s"] { ...

There is currently no way to do this via the Gmail web app itself. "Delayed/scheduled send" is a popular feature request for Gmail, so this may change in the future. Boomerang is a popular 3rd party tool that can send scheduled or recurring emails.

Google is getting out of the business of sending email using domains that it does not administer, because it stands in the way of implementing rules that reduce spoofed email, such as DMARC. This also has the side effect of encouraging customers to host their email domains with Google. Google is grandfathering existing email adddress configurations, but ...

Okay, this question is still getting a lot of views so I figure it's a good idea to post up the solution for my case at least. What was happening, is regardless of my Gmail settings, Windows Live Mail was taking over and moving emails back into my spam, even if I used the "Never send to spam" filter as recommended by AI E. To this this, I took the ...

Thank you pnuts, I have already solved this problem by using canned response in addition of using filter. You can create a canned response(a template mail) and then on creating filter just attach the same with filter. You will get reply every time.

This should be possible using POP3 (incoming) and SMTP (outgoing). Gmail cannot act as an IMAP client AFAIK. Gmail can retrieve up to 5 POP3 accounts and Office 365 would seem to support POP3. And you can configure Gmail to send email as your O365 email address, using your O365 SMTP server. From the above link, these settings would seem to be: POP3 ...

Gmail recently changed its policy. Now it does not permit anymore to use the Gmail SMTP server to send email on behalf of another domain. This is to avoid spammers and enforce some security policy. So, if you have an address aaa@bbb.com you also must have an SMTP server for bbb.com (e.g. smtp.bbb.com) and an account on that SMTP server. If you have those, ...

Quickly is overstating it but if you press the Print button and remove everything after the first ? to the last = and add #inbox/ in between you have yourself a link that actually works. For example https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?#inbox/111x11x5b93c0905. Sounds a bit complicated but takes about 10 seconds to do.

It is almost impossible to recover to gain access to your account. Alternate email and phone number are the 2 key critical factors of securing a gmail account. If both are changed then the account is owned by the person who has changed it. Gmail does not provide an effective account recovery in this case.

I would set them all up to forward to the main account that you wish to keep. Then any mail sent to any of those accounts would only go to the one that you'll be checking every day. Thus, all of your contacts would be in the same place and people who may not have an updated record of your main email address would still be able to reach you. See this link ...

Unfortunately not. Even though careers@ is an alias, Google Apps sees it as an existing address. Incoming emails would not know which is the correct careers@. If you were to create a group with the name careers@ you would get the same error. You need to delete the alias and then create careers@'s own account. ...
