What Is Gmail?
With so many email clients available, you may be wondering exactly what is Gmail. Gmail is a hybrid webmail service, teaming traditional email with the search power of Google. Gmail offers heightened functionality and innovative features at no cost to you.
If space is the name of the game, Gmail users are winning, with access to more than 7558 megabytes of storage space. Google strives to continually increase the storage space offered to its users.
A sorting system allows you to sort important messages from other mail so that you can focus on your top priorities first. A powerful spam-filter routes unwanted junk mail away from your Inbox so you don’t have to move it manually. Google employs a multiple authentication system to ensure the senders of messages are who they claim to be. Security comes built in to Gmail’s interface, as well; HTTPS encryption ensures a secure environment for your messages.
Gmail was created taking into account the busy lifestyles of today’s email users, so on the go connection comes as part of the Gmail experience. Access Gmail from your phone at any time, regardless of what type of cell phone you use.
Gmail’s conversation view of messages organizes your conversations for easier retrieval. Most email systems list each email as a separate entry, leaving you to spend time sorting through files to find previous replies from a given user. Gmail’s conversation view groups all replies within one message, for organized ease of access. A user option permits you to revert to the conventional view, should you find you prefer to view all replies individually.
