Eudora fast search updating index
Archiving is unique to Gmail and is not offered by any other major webmail service or email client.Marking of emails as important is more or less automatic.Gmail allows users to create rules (‘filters’) for the automatic organization of incoming mail.Filters are created using the Advanced Search interface using the same criteria as those used for searching.Messages from people who are emailed to or replied to a lot, and messages of the type that are always opened or were recently marked as important or starred, are likely to be marked as important automatically.Also, messages that are sent to a user directly and not through a mailing list, and messages containing certain keywords (password change, transaction details, shipment delivery, ticket confirmation, etc.) are marked as important.Priority Inbox splits up the inbox into sections such as “Important and unread”, “Unread”, “Starred” and “Everything else” enabling a user to always see important items on the top. However, in another review for Lifehacker, Whitson Gordon calls Priority Inbox "one of Gmail’s most unsung features".
Like labels, categories can be used as a search criterion and be made to appear as labels on the message list.Google software engineer Doug Che explained: "We really hoped everyone would learn to love conversation view, but we came to realize that it's just not right for some people." Gmail automatically saves contact details when forwarding e-mails to a previously unknown recipient.If the user changes, adds, or removes information near an e-mail such as the name while sending any e-mail, it also updates that in the contact list, unless the user is using basic HTML view, designed for people with slower internet connections or browsers that do not support AJAX.The Gmail interface makes Gmail unique amongst webmail systems for several reasons.Most evident to users are its search-oriented features and means of managing e-mail in a "conversation view" that is similar to an Internet forum.
