Best Gmail Tips For A Well Organized Inbox
Today happens to be the day when Gmail was made open for public use back in 2007. It was then in beta phase and was later upgraded. Its been 9 years and Gmail has since kept us amazed with its easy-to-use features and free service. It has improved with times to suit the ever increasing need of mail service. But at the same time Digital marketeers have abused the mail services by sending spamming newsletters, subscriptions, offers and what not.
As a result the mail open rates has reduced to 15-20% (different for every industry) and the click ratio is even smaller 2-5%. Gone are the days where we used to open every email and read every line of it. They say three quarters of the total email traffic is spam. So in order to keep our mail boxes clean, we got some work to do.
We need to use a few interesting settings so that spam doesn’t bother us. When using mail as the primary mode of official communication, we also need to organize our mail boxes so that we are always on top of our important mails. Here we discuss some important tips to help you organize your Gmail account
One interesting feature about gmail is that if your email address has a “.”(period) in it, you can use it without “.” as well and the mail will still go to the same address. For example, if your user name is “firstname.lastname@example.org” then any mail send to “email@example.com” will also be delivered to your inbox. Not just this any mails to “firstname.lastname@example.org” or “email@example.com” and so on and so forth will be delivered to your inbox. So in a nutshell, using or not using a period doesn’t change your email address.
4#Add Multiple accounts
This should a pretty known feature but if you are still using multiple windows and browsers to login to you different gmail accounts here is the tip. Add all your secondary gmail accounts to your primary account. Once you do, you can view all the mails that you receive on your secondary in your primary email. You will not see any further categorization in the mails of secondary account. You can add accounts from settings>accounts and imports
5# Mute Conversations
If you find yourself in a mail conversation which you have nothing to do with but do not want to leave then you can mute it. This feature is similar to the mute as used in chat apps like whatsapp – wherein when you mute a group, you will not get any push notification for new messages in that chat. In the gmail mute feature, you will be notified if you are added in the To/CC.
Do let us know what you think of these features and any more that you have used.
