I posted a bit back about being able to search in Gmail attachments Now there are several more ways you can search your Gmail. A full list of advanced search options can be found on the help page. Among the new search options is the ability to search by attachment size.

I started using the new Gmail Compose last week. It’s closer to what I’m used to seeing on my phone so it didn’t take much to get used to, but I do kind of miss having it expand to my whole window. I’m one of those people who expands all windows when using them – I like them to take up the entire screen. Has anyone found a way to [ Read More ]
Lifehacker has pointed me to a neat new feature in Gmail: Previously, you could only find an attachment if you searched for the message’s text, the filename, or its file type. Now, however, you can search for text within DOC, PDF, PPT, and other files and Gmail will bring them up in your search results. Since I use Gmail for work and home email this is going to be very [ Read More ]
I’ve been using Gmail so long that I take it for granted that it can be foreign to some people. A friend of mine just got a Nexus 7 and had to sign up for Google (and Gmail) to use it and after 15 to 20 years of using the same email client that can be a bit terrifying.

It works by linking one Google account to the others, so when you’re signed into account #1 it knows you should have access to accounts [ Read More ]
I just logged into Gmail to find that things are changed – not much, but changed just the same. Things look a bit cleaner and I love that my contacts are now at the top of the screen (before they were below my ton of labels). I’m also checking out the changes to contacts which were much needed for someone like me who uses my Google contacts for everything.
Today I was compiling an email and saw a new link next to the attach link: If you click this new ‘Invitation’ link it opens a window to create and invite people to a Google Calendar event. Very cool! [update] More from ReadWriteWeb. [/update]
Still on Hotmail? Or worse – AOL mail? Google has made it so that you can easily switch to Gmail: Since launching back in 2004, Gmail has set the gold standard for webmail clients, offering a large amount of storage and a highly usable interface, free of charge. But for many people it has remained out of reach – no matter how appealing Gmail might be, they’ve racked up thousands [ Read More ]
