You can do a wildcard match using Regex within Google Apps Script, which accesses your Gmail. If you want to do a simple search based on a given word as the root, you can use the simpler test() approach. For example: var matchList = []; var labelRoot = /Home/ var existingLabels = GmailApp.getUserLabels(); for (var i = 0; i < ...

Typically you shouldn't be receiving these emails three times a day. When you do receive them (legitimately), you'll see a red notification bar in Google areas when signed in with your account. For safety's sake, I would either enable Google 2-Step Verification on your account, or at least change the password. When in doubt, if you're a paid Google Apps ...

It usually happens when you try to sign in your account using another device or at any other place other than frequently used devices. If it happens thrice a day, then either your account is being signed in by any other person of your circle or someone is trying to hack your account from other places. Because Google recognises devices quickly and sends you ...

I don't see a built-in way to switch to ISO format, but I wrote a userscript for this. Tested in Chrome with Tampermonkey.

They (Google) surely seem to be above their head. Not accepting self-signed certificate is one thing but rejecting/objecting to certificate issued by CN = DST Root CA X3 O = Digital Signature Trust Co. and cross signed as well (read --> https://letsencrypt.org/certificates/) seems a tad bit harsh. I have had success in using my mail server as SMTP to send ...

In the interests of good relations, I think you should probably check with your "mom" first. :) You can allow another Gmail account to "read and send mail on your behalf". Your account then appears as a "delegated" account to the other user and they can then access your account to read (and send) your email. To revoke access, you simply delete their ...

There is nothing like "linked" in Google account. Your question is not clear. I guess your mom has login your Gmail account with her account with Add account feature. Just Sign out your mom's Gmail account, it will sign out yours also. Now login your Gmail account separately.

It appears at the end of the signature block inline. @Ruben is right, it actually is part of the message that was received - it becomes part of the message body on replies, so I'm thinking maybe like what @AIE said, it's a browser extension, and in this case on the other party's end.

Sometimes if you have the chat on it will only display a few labels to make room for the chat options. Click on chat options (the gray arrow next to chat) and turn it off and now you will be able to see all the labels.

Things 'went wrong' at the beginning. You can't use italics in a plain text document. Asterisks are often used to show emphasis, which is what italics should be doing. No, there is no way for you to assert your email preferences on someone else's email client. It's possible they are receiving your emails fine, but may just be sending plain text. There is ...

You need to filter on the delivered-to header. Fortunately, Gmail allows you to do that. Use the advanced search flag in the "has the words" field for your filter. For example: deliveredto:layke+blind@example.com You can probably even shorten it to deliveredto:blind but you may get too many false positives. I have a few similar filters for just ...

The whole idea of bcc is that the recipients don't see who is on bcc. That includes all receivers, even the ones on bcc. So when the email to yourself arrives, you are not on bcc anymore, as it is not shown to anyone. You can use cc: for the effect you want, and the receiver mailbox will know that you are on cc: and can handle rules to it. But then everyone ...

A receiver-side solution to this problem would be to install the SWEC (Symbola-based Wingdings Emoticons Compatibility) font. It provides basic compatibility with Wingdings emoticons.

The email should currently be in the "All Mail" section. Gmail treats the inbox itself as a label, so if you remove all labels, it doesn't move it back to the inbox. If you can't find it, try searching for it, and then you can move it back to the inbox.

I've had this happen to me while using Gmail via Chrome with no idea on how. I finally figured out how on my particular laptop.

Clicking them again at the same time turns the overtype ...

Connect both accounts into Outlook or something like that with IMAP (and not POP3), and then drag and drop the emails from one inbox into the other. I do that every day, no problems. Expect some time for the processing, as IMAP synchronizes on the server too, so the content basically flows from server 1 (with mail account 1) to your PC to server 2 (with ...

It's just cute marketing-speak. Google's algorithms have determined that the message might be important based on whatever secret stuff the algorithm contains. It's either too close to industrial secrets or so esoteric it can't be briefly explained.

You can add the gmail account (or any other account, like hotmail) in Outlook as a further account, mapped through IMAP. It will show up as a further inbox, you can then select and drag-'n-drop all the emails in one step from one of the Inboxes (or 'Sent' boxes) to any other. Be aware that it takes a bit of time, as the moving (or copying, if you hold down ...

There really isn't a simple solution. For 37 messages, I'd almost certainly just do them one at a time. It couldn't possibly take more than a half hour. One other option might be to use Google Takeout to download all the mail messages with a certain label. The messages will be in MBOX format, and many email clients can import that without issue.

After encountering the same problem, encountering your thread, and leaving sad, a hack just occured to me.

Then the rest of your tags are now cleaned.

I had the same issue and thought I'd share my work-around. Since Gmail only lets you insert web or email hyperlinks into the body of an email, I put my network hyperlinks in a Word doc and sent it as an attachment, instructing the recipients to download the attachment to their desktop and open it from there to access the hyperlinks. It's a little ghetto, but ...

Google does not currently offer any way to improve their conversation groups/breaks. https://support.google.com/mail/answer/5900 implies only subject is utilized in making this decision, but both you and I are finding that's not the case.
