Recently, a Google blog post announced that one can now send emails to people in their Google+ circles. I am able to do that from my main GMail account but a new account I created doesn't have access to this feature. Is there something one needs to do on a new account to enable this feature?
I should also mention that the option Who can email you via your Google+ profile? in settings is available but just that when composing email, suggestions from G+ connections are not shown.
