Cool Finds for Google Gmail – Labs Tab!

After a Saturday morning surf in Mission Beach (for those that did not want to jump into the Del Mar toxic waste spill) I went over to visit an old friend in Pacific Beach who taught me a couple new tricks with GMAIL.

Tip #1 – Refreshing your POP Email Account in GMAIL without having to go to Mail Settings every time

Step One: If you go over to your Mail Settings and click on the “Labs” area.

Go to the "Labs" tab in Mail Settings

Step Two: Go into the Labs area and explore and Enable all of the items that make sense to your user experience.

Happy Hunting!

    yes! that Having to got to Mail Settings every time to refresh has been a pain in my behind forEver. great find!

    i also like the “default to Reply All” option, rather than just defaulting to reply to 1 person.

    With the demise of Google Labs, does this mean that Gmail Labs bite the dust, too? How about iGoogle?

    Nice to see you are getting into the Labs… I would like to meet with you to discuss some additional tools that google has available. When are you free?
