Emails are the preferred mode of communication today and not only for professional purpose but also for personal reasons. Whenever we send an email, we want to make sure that it has been read by the receiver at the other end however by default, no email provider gives us this option. So for all those who are using Gmail as the email provider, you can now find out when your email has been read.
With the help of a third party extension developed for Chrome, senders can now find out if the email being sent has been read or not, how many times, from where and from which device.

We all have been aware of the new feature of Gmail introduced some time back. This is about the Gmail’s new Compose email feature in which when we click the compose button to type a new email, there pops up a small window on the bottom right part of the screen in which we can enter the recipient, the subject and the message.

So for all those who would still like to get something like that back here are few tips using which you can enlarge your compose screen and also move it to the center.

Email is, no doubt, the best way to mail someone without involving any physical transfers of letters or the transportation. But over the years our inbox had been controlled by others. Whenever someone wished to send us an email, our inbox received it. I always wanted some feature that allowed us to enable or disable receiving the emails.
Imagine you are on some vacation with family, and you receive some email from office. I am sure you won’t like that and you will have to go on and read the email. Wouldn’t you find it helpful if there had been some plug-in or some tool that can enable us to stop or pause the incoming emails on our will and as long as we wanted, still letting the email senders know that we haven’t read the email?

This is the age of technology and today we use electronic mails more as compared to the old form of physical mails. When we receive an email from someone we can find out who is the sender of the email from the sender’s address but there is no field that can tell us what the location of the email sender is. Sometimes it becomes very important to determine the location of the email to check its validity as a person may be sitting in some country and claiming to be in another.
Thus it sometimes, is important to find out the approximate location (if not accurate) of the email sender. To be able to find out the location of the email sender we first need the IP address of the email sender or the IP route used by the email itself. Determining this is not very difficult and every different email service has its own way of finding this out. It can be like right clicking and checking the properties or the Full Headers.

I like using keyboard shortcuts, as it reduces our effort and helps to do my work faster. Recently I got to know a new feature in Gmail. According to this feature, Gmail supports Keyboard shortcuts. As we all know that it is better to use keyboard shortcuts for mouse intensive tasks, so we should enable this feature in Gmail also.
With these shortcuts you can easily reduce your workload. You can quickly navigate between mailboxes (Inbox, Sent Mail, Drafts etc.) and other Gmail sections including Contacts and Tasks using these shortcuts. So to enable shortcuts and assign hotkeys in Gmail, open Settings and go to the General settings. Then click on ‘Keyboard shortcuts On’ option to enable this feature.

There are many foreign languages in this world. You can’t be an expert in all these languages and if you are involved in export or some dealing with your foreign clients, then you must need a translator. Even this also is not possible because you can’t keep a translator for each language.
However, previously automatic email translations were available on Google Mail for some time as parts of Gmail Labs. This feature was activated by many of the users but some of the users were unable to activate this feature and the feature got disabled. Now the company is going to start a new feature for translation that will be available to the users in a couple of days. Continue reading “How to Translate E-mails in Gmail using Translation Feature”

Worrying about the email that you sent too early? It can happen to anyone that mistakenly we send out the email either to the unintended recipient or the appropriate recipient but the content that he shouldn’t read. It is the human nature to commit mistakes and sending out wrong emails to the recipient is a common one too.
Usually there is no way to recall or undo the emails sent online since the emails that are sent gets delivered within seconds. There is no way to intrude the recipient’s inbox and delete the email however we wish there could have been one. The speed, with which the email servers send out the emails, can’t be controlled.
Thus to have this overcome, there is one feature in Gmail (disabled by default though) with which you can undo the emails sent within certain frame of time. Continue reading “Recall or Undo Sent Emails in Gmail”
