Google is ubiquitous. We sometimes forget how cool it can be. Here are some things you may not know about Gmail
Email address with your domain name — So you can have firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com. Nifty feature to help your business look more professional.
Get driving directions with Google — Got an email from a client with a meeting time and address? Google detects the address and automatically creates a link to Google Maps.
Forgotten attachment detector — You’re about to send a message with an important attachment, but you’ve forgotten to attach it. Gmail detects phrases such as ‘see attachment for more details’ within your email and reminds you when you click send. Similarly, Gmail has an undo send facility – a cool feature that gives you 5 seconds to stop a mail after you’ve clicked ‘send’.
Google Docs — lets you create and share documents through your Gmail account. Which means you can access them from wherever you have internet access. You can convert Word documents, OpenOffice, RTF, HTML, text (.txt), and Open Office (.odt)) files.
Google Apps — With Gmail comes access to Google Apps, a powerful messaging and collaboration system. For individuals and businesses alike, even the free option offers such features as: up to 50 custom accounts, shared calendars, Google Docs and Google Talk. Schedule events, share online docs, presentations and spreadsheets.
