About Gmail

Gmail is a cloud-based solution that helps businesses streamline communication across the organization via emails. It enables professionals to sort inbox messages into various categories and place emails into new tabs using a drag-and-drop interface. Using Gmail's confidential mode, businesses can set an expiration date for messages and secure information by preventing unauthorized access. Managers can create personalized accounts for employees and view the schedule of upcoming meetings on an in-built calendar. Additionally, it offers mobile applications for iOS and Android devices, which lets users manage multiple accounts and receive automated notifications regarding new emails. Gmail comes with an application programming interface (API), which allows organizations to modify the system and integrate it with various third-party systems. The product is available for free and support is extended via documentation.

The best email management tool

Pros

The user interface is very simple and organized. Unlike its competitors, Gmail offers a very "clean" look with varying themes. I like the ability to label my emails and then to easily locate all of them, which is not something other email management tools offer. I also like that there are spaces that we can create to work and communicate together. Additionally, it is a huge advantage to have a hub of other tools available at our disposal, like the whole Google Suite. One can easily link documents, tag contacts, maintain common folders etc.

Cons

The only thing I do not like is that if I send calendar invites, I receive people's responses in my Primary inbox. Even if I change the label to something else, like "Updates", Gmail does not learn and remember that. I have to do that everytime.

Gmail Inbox

Pros

I am using Gmail since 2000. Is a low-cost product and is useful for a small company of for a single person.

Cons

In the last months my email address used since 24 years, is confounded with another address and from this reason I am receiving the messages from another person.
On other side the AI used by gmail to filter the message and spam make many mistakes. The algorithms are weaks and the code is obsolete.

Gmail makes email simpler

Overall I had a good experience with Gmail as it allowed me to explore additional products offered by Google Workspace. Gmail integrated notes and Reminders work perfectly well with Mobile apps and Sync is great. Overall I would always recommend Gmail for primary email storage.

Pros

I have found Gmail comes with lot of utilities. Emails Management, Calendar, Google Drive, Google Sheet, Notes etc. These tools makes all in one easy for you to manage your personal or Business portfolio. Gmail free accounts have more than sufficient space for Drive and Emails and the Google Workspace comes with lot of Admin advantages and products.

Cons

Syncing Gmail emails with third-party applications is a back draw. The IMAP or POP is not reliable and loses connectivity. Google Should join its email through Exchange to work with third-party apps.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Outlook and Yahoo Mail

Reasons for Choosing Gmail

More functionalities, reliability, and sustainability.

Switched From

Yahoo Mail

Reasons for Switching to Gmail

Gmail sharing, Storage, Email and Search is better than Yahoo or Outlook
