New Gmail Feature: 5 Seconds Undo Send Button

with 2 comments

gmailGmail has just launched a new great feature that might prove useful to many Gmail users. Say hello to Undo Send, a new feature that lets you undo and stop sending a message that you were intending to send- all in 5 minutes. This might prove very useful for people who have spotted an obvious typo, forgot to attach a file or sent the email to the wrong person.

To start using this new feature, go to Labs and scroll down to find Undo Send and enable it. Now that you enable it, whenever you want to undo a sent message, just click the “Undo” button and you will be back in time- to when you were still writing that email. Seems like Google just keeps pumping new features into Gmail. We will be keeping tabs on more Gmail news. Let us know how this nifty 5 second feature helped saved your day!! 😀

Offline Gmail: Complete Review And Walkthrough/Tutorial/Guide

with 5 comments

offline-gmailWe told you about offline Gmail in our last post and told you some of the cool functions as well. In this post we will show you a complete review as well as a walkthrough/tutorial/guide of this amazing offline Gmail service. Follow the steps below and you should be able to set up offline Gmail in no time.

1. Ensure that you have a Gmail account as well as Google Gears installed on your browser.

2. For this post, I will be using an Apple Safari but Firefox and Internet Explorer should work too.

3. Log in to your Gmail account and go to Setting > Labs and enable Offline Gmail.

4. Now Gmail will prompt you when enabling Offline Gmail such as installing a shortcut on your computer.

5. After which, it will start synchronizing all the mail and you have to be patient while it does so (only about 10,000 messages will be downloaded)


6. Now you can enjoy Offline Gmail by unplugging your internet!!

I tried the Offline Gmail and I have to say it is really convenient and works great so far, though I could not view any images or send mail. Hopefully, Google will be bringing more offline access and support to Google Calander, Google Earth, Google Reader and maybe Google Search (maybe). Let me know what you think about this or keep updated on the latest news and updates by subscribing to my email or RSS updates!! 😀

with 2 comments

gmail-google-gearsIf you have been using Google Gmail for a long time, you will be happy to know that Google now enables you to read your mail offline using Google Gears. This is a really great news as previously Gmail depended a lot on you having an internet connection for you to acces the functions. Now you can read your mail online, label or star it. Only bad points is that you cannot send mail or receive new mail. (duh!) To use this new awesome function, you need to install Google Gears first.

Here is a quick video to show you what it will look the new offline Gmail will looks like. I will post more about this as I try out the new function. Comment and let me know what you think, or get our blog updates by email or RSS!! 😀
