As an email account holder, there are features you may not be aware of or do not know how to use.
Mashable’s Nicole Gallucci shared six ways to help you become an expert email user.
1. Free up storage space.
Gallucci suggests saving valuable space in your email account by deleting unimportant email especially if you have hundreds of unread emails.
Gmail allows a user to search emails by sender, recipient, file size, subject, and date. From there, you can delete those that aren’t important or have already acted on.
Delete large files or those that date back five years ago or older than that, Gallucci suggests.
“Decluttering might seem impossible but is doable,” she said.
2. Enable ‘Undo Send’
Gmail introduced the “Undo Send” feature in 2015, Gallucci recalled, and it can help you avoid sending an email by mistake.
How do you enable it? Click the settings gear in the upper right-hand corner of your Gmail account and then select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
From there, check the box labeled “Enable Undo Send.” after which you can choose from a “send cancellation period.”
3. Organize your inbox by creating Labels (or folders) and Categories (Social and Promotions).
4. Customize your account by putting stars on email, color or themes so it won’t be boring to look at and making use of the stars in the Stars section in the Settings tab. By putting a star on an email, it would be easier to search for it.
Gmail has custom themes that a user can choose.
5. Make better use of your email by sending personalized mass emails courtesy of a Chrome extension called Mail Merge for Gmail or schedule the sending of emails ahead of time so you won’t forget about it by using Boomerang for Gmail.
Gallucci said it would also be best for email account owners to know the keyboard shortcuts to save on time.
6. Be up to date on Gmail news by going to Gmail Labs or the Gmail official blog.
