By default Gmail doesn’t allow HTML signature in outgoing emails. Means all tags you put into signature will appear as it is.
There are multiple ways to overcome this problem. Simplest is too have a HTML editor and copying HTML signature into Gmail, thanks to Gmail’s WYSIWYG editor. This method is good for one or two mails everyday.
Next you can do this using a Greasemonkey script either. As greasemonkey is for firefox only, other user can still follow method described above.
After installation, script will create a HTML signature box in left sidebar. There you can put as many signature as you want and also set which signature to be used by default (in case of multiple signature).
Also each signature can be assigned a memorable name as shown in screenshot below which appears when you add new or edit existing signatures!
Once done, every time you compose a new email as well as reply to any, your signature will be be appended automatically.
if you are using plain-text signature in Gmail, that will be also added to new mails. You can either use both or remove old signature by going to Settings >> General >> Signature!
Most Gmail users will answer one! Rest will answer 2-3 or little more. But in reality, all Gmail users have infinite Gmail addresses even if they have registered for only one Gmail account!
All these addresses act as aliases to Gmail address you use and can be divided in three categories as explained below. At the end some smart tips are given to make use of these aliases to get more from your Gmail accounts!
So lets start with aliases now…
#1. googlemail.com alias
Every email@example.com have a alias firstname.lastname@example.org by default. So even if you send me mail at email@example.com it will be delivered to my inbox as shown in following screenshot…
Googlemail.com is official domain for Gmail.com service in Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom. More information about this is available on Gmail’s wikipedia page.
This makes your address count: 2
#2. dot [.] alias
Gmail ignores dot [.] character in email address. Means all of the following are same…
Yep, you can use above aliases in any possible combination. Check following screenshot, I used all three of above at once… 😉
Are you still counting? 😀
Now you may be wondering what to do with these virtual infinite email addresses (or aliases). First give your original email address without plus and dots to your friends and other real people only. Now out of aliases I personally recommend to go for plus aliases as they are more readable.
If you used labels too often then you might have noticed slightly different labels box today with some squares next to them! Well its nothing but Gmails colored label feature! So how to use this feature?
It is by default enabled on new Gmail Version which is available only for IE7 and Firefox 2+.
# How to color a label?
Just click on square box next to each label and you will see a small palate of 24-colors as shown in above screenshot! Also there is a link "Remove color" on same palate which comes in handy if you want to remove color at all!
# Editing label name made simpler…
Yep. On same palate there is a link Edit Name, which on clicking prompts new name!
Here this small palate could have been better if there is "Delete Label" link on it!
Anyway hold on there is more….
# Removing labels from a mail/conversation…
No need to scroll down more actions to remove a label. Instead have a look at subject line and at the end of it you will notice every label with a separate "x" link. Just click on it and that label will be removed from mail/conversation you are reading!
Just have a look at following screenshot…
That’s All! If you find something missing over here, let us know! 🙂
When you reach the limit of free storage for your Google Account (i.e., 1GB for Picasa Web Albums, 2.8GB for Gmail) don’t get panic, don’t start deleting your mails/images and other attachments!
There is simple way to overcome this problem by buying some storage. As Googles Official Blog, plan starts at $20/year for 6GB (yes, $5 cheaper than before), with larger plans ranging up to 250GB. (Click here to see all plans)
Whats surprising me is the exclusion of service like Google Pages which is quite popular among not-so-geek users and hosting many small websites! Strangely Google have storage upgradation plans for services having 1GB (Picasa) and 2.8GB (Gmail) but no donuts for 100MB service which is Google Pages! :O
According to wikipedia the term hyperpolyglot means a person one who can speak six or more languages fluently! And also according to it Ziad Fazah is reputed to be the world’s most accomplished hyperpolyglot. It is said that he speaks, reads and understands 58 languages!
If you’re multilingual, feeling adventurous, or if you just want to test how well you know the Gmail user interface, try changing your account language settings. Sound a little risky? Don’t worry – it’s easy. You can change the language through the Settings menu. Get a taste of what hyperpolyglotic…
Let us know how many of these language UIs do you recognize?
