4 Great Gmail Tricks You Should Know From Now On by 3mmyz(m): 5:50pm On Jan 10
Gmail also known as Googlemail, it is a mail service owned by Google that lets you send mails over the internet, blah blah blah and so on and so forth.
Now let me quickly drop 5 Gmail tricks you never
knew existed.

1. No dots

Yeah, no dots! There's actually no difference between john.dean@gmail.com and Johndean@gmail.com or even j.o.h.n.d.e.a.n@gmail.com in case someone tries to stress you with meaningless dots.

The truth is, i love to strictly include dots when giving out my mail address to people.

Why? You can easily spot sites that sold your mail address to companies.
An example:
You register at www.sample.com with joh.n.dean@gmail.com when your actual mail is johndean@gmail.com when you begin to receive mails from other websites and in details the receiver address (you) is joh.n.dean@gmail.com, just know that sample sold your information.

2. Two Addresses

Have you always wanted to register multiple accounts in a website with one mail? If yes, then read on.

You can use johndean@gmail.com and johndean@googlemail.com on one website with two different accounts and still receive notifications from those different accounts to one mail address. That's huge.

3. Mail Delegation

This simple trick will let others handle your mail account with full access to delete, send and read mails on your behalf. This is very helpful when on vacation or very busy with something else.

Gmail delegation is also helpful in managing multiple accounts simultaneously.
You can also use multiple accounts instead of logging out from one mail address to check another.

4. Using Shortcut

Below are Gmail shortcuts

• J and K to move the cursor up and down

• X to select/deselect the present thread that’s pointed to by the cursor

• C to compose new mail

• E to archive all threads that have been selected

• *Enter* to go into the topic pointed to by the cursor

• “g d” to go to draft

• “g i” to go to my inbox

• “g a” to go to all mail

So, it is unnecessary to create an alias by inserting a dot:
firstname.lastname@gmail.com is automatically an alias for firstnamelastname@gmail.com
