Know That Your Emails Have Been Read

11 May

Do want to know when your emails in Gmail were read? MailTrack tells you when a user received and opened your email. After sending it, you’ll see a single check when your message is sent and a double-check whenever the recipient reads it. The service is free and only works with Gmail. You will continually get a pop-up asking to upgrade after each send which can get annoying. I have turned off the feature a few times because of the constant asking for upgrade. However it is nice to know that an individual got your email and read it.

Google Motion

1 Apr

Happy April 1st! In true Google style, the search pioneers rolled-out a new product just in time for April Fool's Day. You can now use your body to control Gmail. Here's what they say, “Gmail Motion uses your computer's built-in webcam and Google's patented spatial tracking technology to detect your movements and translate them into meaningful characters and commands. Movements are designed to be simple and intuitive for people of all skill levels. ”

Gmail Priority Inbox

16 Sep

Leading Hands are big fans of Gmail. Recently the email provider launched Priority Inbox which I have been trying and liking. Google says it works like this, “Gmail's servers look at several types of information to identify the email that's important to you, including who you email and chat with most, how often you email with these people, and which keywords appear frequently in the emails you read.”

You virtually will see two bars on your screen, one for “Important and Unread” and then an “Everything Else” section. If you leave Priority Inbox, you can return to it by clicking the link next to Inbox on the side navigation of Gmail.

If you have a Gmail account, try it out. If you don't have a Gmail account get one.

GTriage Strikes Back

25 Jul

Leading Hands had mentioned Gtriage early this year and since then many improvements have been made to their email triage system. If you are looking for an easy way to create another layer of sorting in your email box then try Gtriage. Once again the service tags “important” emails coming in based on your habits. This service has saved me hours and hours of keeping my Gmail box clean.

Gmail Users – Try Mail Goggles!

3 Nov

I learned the hard way a few years ago about sending emails in the heat of the moment. Before I send out a big email, I generally save it in my draft box, let it simmer, and send it out later. This method of saving for later led to many drafts in my inbox, but it has made me certainly craft better emails. Now Google has created Mail Goggles to prevent you from sending that message you shouldn’t send.

Inside your Gmail “Setup”, under the “Labs” tab you will see the option to enable this feature. You have the opportunity to define what time of the day you want Google to ask if you if you really want to send this email.

By the way, if you don’t have a Gmail account, you are missing out on one of the best free products on the market. I would highly recommend signing-up for a Gmail account; you will never go back to your old email system.
