The 5 Pillars of Proper Emoji Etiquette

The Biggest Problem With Gmail (And How To Solve It!)

When Google released Gmail, it changed the way people use email. It was the first web-based email system to break out of the mold set by the desktop email clients that came before. Beginning as a sort of secret club that you had to be invited to, it took off right from the start. Not only was Gmail faster, with a much more advanced and easier to use interface, the way Gmail handled and sorted email was a giant leap ahead. Gmail left behind the hard to follow, chronological lists of messages and sorted everything into nice, neat, individual conversations. Many people didn’t realize at the time just how revolutionary this change was.

4 Quick Tips For Mastering Google Calendar

5 Ways You Win When You Use A Unified Desktop Email Client

Email has become something we all take for granted. Not too long ago, we used to ask people if they had an email address. Today we just assume everyone has at least one. When someone needs to get in touch with you, they’re more likely to ask you for your email address than your phone number.

How (Not) To Write An Email Greeting

Trying to come up with the perfect greeting for an email message is not always a simple task. The Internet has changed both the way we write, and the way we relate to each other. The lines between formal, friendly and linguistic fiasco have become blurred.
