comment How do I change the timezone in Trello notification emails?
@JoelSpolsky thanks, but that only says about how timezones are calculated in your browser, not in emails. In my browser the times display as expected (in GMT), but then the emails refer to EST...

comment How do I get rid of “On Behalf Of” from my sent Gmail messages?
Sorry, no... it works that way for me, so I've never needed to try another way. Have you got the domain authentication / SPF stuff set up? I do, but no idea if that affects this or not...

See Barry's answer for a more elegant approach that doesn't require it to be editable...

comment Handle a Gmail account and a domain account from Gmail / iPhone
Redirection / auto-forwarding doesn't show up in the email you receive - diffferent from a manual forward. As for being forced to select where writing from - you can set up gmail to automatically respond from the email address the original was sent to. Of course when composing a new one, you can set a default to start with but you'll have to select another if you want to change it.

comment How do I transfer my photos from Flickr to Picasa?
In the end, what I did was go through each album in Flickr and recreate manually in Picasa. Why? you might ask. Because I already had all the photos on my hard disk and wanted Picasa to know which ones from which folder were uploaded, rather than having a separate set of folders. It's a year on and I've not quite done them all yet! :)

comment How can I migrate Documents from MS Office Live to Google Docs?
As per my comment on Luca's answer - is this for a large number of documents, or just a few?

I think user84693 is looking for a way to do this in bulk, but that's not altogether clear...

comment How to un-merge Google Apps and Gmail Account?
Could do with some clarification, when you say "I got some email from Google and when..." - do you mean they emailed you to say that something had changed in how things were set up? Maybe the content of that email would be relevant here...

Are you really running out of space on Gmail? I've used it for everything for years now and I'm still only at 20% usage...

comment Migrate from IMAP server to Google Apps
I did a similar thing a few years ago. For me the main problem was the date that I moved the mails in appeared as the date the mails were sent (until you opened a thread, where it displayed OK). Never found a way to get around that...

comment Automatically open ICS files in Google Calendar
Weird - I don't get that at all - it just looks like a normal message for me except the little icon alongside the basic message details. I'm using Google Apps version of Gmail and it's in US English (so I get the cutting edge features). I've been confused about this since Google announced the feature... doesn't work for me! :(

comment Automatically open ICS files in Google Calendar
I don't get a link with "Add to calendar" in gmail. This has always puzzled me. I see a special icon showing a calendar in the message preview, but I can only download the .ics file, not add to calender... So this solution doesn't work for me :(

comment Automatically open ICS files in Google Calendar
I tried this application, but when I ran it with an ics file, it added an event to my calendar on the current day (not the day of the invite) at a random time... shame, it's close. Not going to give the bounty to this one even if it is the only suggestion.

You can upload to Google Docs... but you're not going to be able to convert them to .chm...

comment Embed Google Drawing Inside Google Docs
Hrm, in Spreadsheets, I have the option to switch back to the old one, but in a Document I don't have that option... maybe I'm still on the old version for some reason - I thought it had been rolled out to everyone now. I'm in Chrome too BTW.

comment Can GMail display error messages for SMTP failures?
Although POP and SMTP are different things, but I guess often you'd be using the same username & password on two servers from one provider.
