Google Spreadsheets should automatically wrap text when the content exceeds the width of the cell. If not, you should be able to see a button on the toolbar to Wrap Text. Hit that when focus is on the cell you want to wrap text for. Alternatively you can force a linebreak in the cell with Ctrl + Enter.

To do this, you need to set up Gmail to send emails via an "external" mail server. However, since the alias domain is already registered with Google, you can in fact set this "external" server to their servers and have it work just fine! Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts -> Edit Info (on alias account) -> Next Step -> Send through example.com SMTP servers ...

Google+ (and the +1 button) require a Google Profile, and Google hasn't activated Profiles for Apps users yet. Google stated back in March that Profiles were "coming soon" for Apps, but there's still no sign of it. UPDATE (July 21) Still no sign of Profiles/Plus for Apps users, but Googlers keep saying it's coming "in the coming months". John ...

Google are beginning to transition Google Apps accounts to full accounts. My domain just went through this transition and now I have access to most Google services using my Google Apps account.

Check out GoogleCL. It lets you interact with google services from the command line like: $ google docs upload the_bobs.csv ~/work/docs_to_share/* The most recent release says it includes uploading directory trees to Docs. A little bit of shell scripting should let you cron job a backup.

It's because you don't have permissions to do so. The administrator of the Google Apps account has disabled this ability. There is a setting in the admin that scopes out the permissions and share abilities. They've selected the option that restricts other users from being able to see or edit the document unless they are within the organisation, in this ...

Google recently announced support for rich text in signatures. That means you can now configure the font family, size and color, as well as insert images into the signature. Just go to your gmail settings and you'll find it right there, no need to enable as a lab feature or anything! It's possible it hasn't been expanded to Google Apps for your domain yet, ...

This is a very good question. Often people in an org can sniff around doc history to see what the author was thinking on earlier revs. A way around this (not elegant) is to make a copy of the doc using File --> Make a copy... This copy will have the most current content and will start history fresh. Then you can delete the original one, rename the new ...

If you are not already using SPF and DKIM to authenticate your email, these can help it get past some spam filters. SPF identifies the servers that are authorized to send mail from your domain. If all mail sent from the domain is sent through Google Apps, see this page for instructions on creating an SPF record. DKIM is used to add a digital signature to ...

A tool called "Google Docs Upload" may do the job: http://code.google.com/p/google-docs-upload/ http://lifehacker.com/5354441/google-docs-batch-upload-eases-online-document-transfers I've had limited success with this tool. Unfortunately, it doesn't support image files yet, although that is now allowed by Google. Ubuntu 10.04 : This works with the ...

If you're going to be doing this on a Linux server you could try GMailFS which uses FUSE to mount your google mail (which should also work with google apps) storage over IMAP as a local file system.

It's not a webapp answer, but I use a program called PureText. It just sits in your system tray and provides a hotkey (configurable) that will paste the current clipboard contents as plain text. I absolutely love this feature. I have it set to WINDOWS+v

My suggestion: create a bounce@example.com account, and suspend it. Later, add as many aliases as needed for that account. Worked like a charm for me, with the following return message: Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: bounce@example.com Technical details of permanent failure: Google tried to deliver your message, ...

Alias = mirror of the original or main email address. Therefore the disk space is shared between the two. Good explanation over here. An alias is essentially just a nickname for a mail account. The alias itself has no mailbox and all mail sent to it will be delivered to the mailbox it is mapped to.

There is really no good contact sharing. There is a global contacts list for your domain but it cannot be managed through the Google interfaces. It can be used via a custom program using the contacts API, and there are some 3rd party tools that are good. One recommendation is called SherpaTools, its in the market place for free. I work as a Google Apps ...

One solution is to activate "multiple sign-in" on your accounts. Afterwards you can use two tabs like before. Another solution is to use different browser instances that do not share cookies. This can be done by starting the same browser multiple times, use different browsers (e.g. Chrome for one account, Firefox for another) or use something like Prism to ...

RFC2822 says Date: and From: headers are required (section 3.6).

At this point the general consensus is that there is no way to turn off this "embed images" function of the otherwise "drag-to-attach" feature of the new Gmail. There are a few criteria to keep in mind though, circumstances in which attachment will occur rather than embedding: Dragging in multiple images simultaneously (using multi-select, shift-click, ...

A couple things to try: Clear your cookies (if a duration is allowed, I'd try "everything") Clear your cache (if a duration is allowed, I'd try "everything") Make sure your system time is correct. If none of that works, try logging in with labs disabled: http://mail.google.com/mail/?labs=0
