Gmail Is Taking Over The World; Here’s How To Take Over Gmail.

Few things have managed to change the landscape of the Internet in the way Gmail has. The initial launch of the service was, in and of itself, unique. Rather than just opening the doors and letting the public in, Google created a mystique around the service, requiring an invitation from a current user to get you into the party. The coveted invitations were so valuable that they sold for more than $100 on auction sites.

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.

5 Tips for Creating the Perfect Email Signature

If you're reading this blog, you use email a crazy amount. But do you feel like you've really mastered it yet? Often, we are so caught up in the message we are trying to get across in an email, that we actually lose track of the things that matter most; sentence structure, grammar, punctuation...and email signatures! When was the last time you really looked at yours?

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.
