    What's new on Gmail? Just launched!
    [SIZE=-1]Reply on top
    No more scrolling to the bottom of a long message to find the “Reply” link. Now there's a Reply button right on top, along with a lot of other options under the little dropdown arrow.
    [/SIZE] [​IMG] [SIZE=-1] Embarassment-reducing new message notifications
    Ever replied to a message only to find out that someone sent a better, smarter reply right before you? Now, if someone sends a reply while you're in the middle of reading a conversation (or replying to it), you'll get a notification that a new message has arrived. Click "update conversation" to see what you’ve missed.

    Forward all

    When viewing a conversation, use the new “Forward all” link on the right if you want to forward the entire conversation instead of just one message.

    Chat even when your friends are offline
    Chatting in Gmail just keeps getting better. Now, if you're chatting with a friend who goes offline, your friend will be able to see whatever you were typing the next time he or she goes online.

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Get Gmail on your mobile phone
    It's new and it's fast. To try it for yourself, point your phone to gmail.com/app

    Download it once, and start accessing Gmail on your phone with just a click or two. You'll also like it because: [/SIZE]
    • [SIZE=-1]
    • It has the same Gmail interface you know and love
    • Your account stays synchronized whether you access it from your computer or the phone
    • You can easily view attachments such as photos, documents and .pdf files[/SIZE]

    What's been keeping us busy...
    [SIZE=-1]Ever since we launched Gmail, we've been working hard to make it better. Here are a few of the features we've added:[/SIZE]
    • [SIZE=-1]
    • Voicemail
      Your friends can leave you a voicemail using Google Talk. The voice message is sent to your Gmail account as an audio file that you can download or play right from your inbox. Learn more
    • Take an action on multiple messages
      Now you can apply the same action to all messages in a label or section of your account, such as archiving all mail in your Inbox, deleting all messages in Spam, or applying a label or filter to all relevant messages in your account. Learn more
    • Reply by chat
      When you're about to (or in the middle of a) reply to someone, and you see that person online, you can just send your reply as a chat message. And if you've chosen to save your chat histories, then your chat even gets threaded with that original email conversation. Learn more
    • Gmail in two more languages
      Now you can also use Gmail in Arabic and Hebrew. There are even some specially-designed features for right-to-left languages. Learn more
    • A picture's worth a thousand words
      With contact pictures in Gmail, you can pick ones for yourself, see which ones your friends have chosen, and set certain pictures to show up for specific people in your Gmail account. Best of all, you can even send picture suggestions to your friends. Learn more

      [​IMG] [SIZE=-1][​IMG]

      [/SIZE][SIZE=-1]
    • Sounds in Gmail Chat
      Never miss out on a chat in Gmail again. Now there's a "ping" when people send you a chat. Learn more [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Gmail Chat
      Get in touch with your friends instantly, from right inside Gmail! It's the biggest thing to happen to Gmail, since well, Gmail. Learn more[/SIZE] [/SIZE][SIZE=-1][​IMG][/SIZE]
      [SIZE=-1] [SIZE=-1]
    • Delete button
      Delete the messages you really don't want. For the rest, use Archive, which removes a message from your Inbox, but keeps it in All Mail so you can always find it later. Learn more[​IMG]
    • Gmail Mobile
      Point your phone's web browser to http://gmail.com to access Gmail from your mobile phone or device. It's easy to use and it's free (but yes, your wireless plan could still charge you).

      It also automatically optimizes the interface for the phone you're using and lets you reply by call to people whose phone numbers are in your Gmail Contacts list. Learn more
    • Vacation auto-responder
      Set an auto-response so that if you're lying on a beach or taking a train across Siberia, your friends will know you won't be checking your email. Learn more
    • Contact groups
      One of our most-requested features is finally here! Now you can send messages to a group instead of having to pick out the individual addresses every time. Learn more
    • RSS feeds in Gmail
      View your favorite RSS feeds right in Gmail as "Clips" along the top of your Gmail screen. Display clips from blogs, news sites and other online sources. Pick from the latest headlines, random popular feeds, or add any RSS/Atom feed you want. Learn more

      [​IMG]
    • View as HTML
      Now you can view Microsoft Office, OpenOffice or .pdf attachments as web pages by clicking the "View as HTML" link instead of downloading. For when you want to see it faster, you're on a mobile device, or you don't want to install software just to view a document. Learn more
    • [​IMG]Shortcuts on the right
      Now Gmail automatically detects addresses and tracking numbers, and displays useful information such as directions and package tracking alongside your messages. Learn more
    • Virus scanning is here!
      For your protection, Gmail now automatically scans for viruses every time you open or send a message with an attachment. We even try our best to remove all the viruses we find. Learn more
    • Export contacts
      Export your Gmail Contacts and save them in a file for back-up or to use in another account or service–great if you're using Gmail's free POP access. Learn more
    • Auto-save
      Saves to ‘Drafts' as you're composing. Never lose a half-written email again.
    • Get to Gmail from any web page
      Download the new Gmail-enabled Google Toolbar. Search your mail or instantly go to your Inbox from any web page with just one click. Learn more
    • Offline access to messages
      Google Desktop lets you search your computer for files, music, photos, chats, web pages you've seen, and now, your Gmail messages too. Even if you're offline.
    • Gmail on Google.com
      See your new messages directly from your personalized Google.com homepage.
    • Google Talk
      IM and make free calls through your computer with Google Talk. Your Gmail contacts are even pre-loaded. Learn more
    • Customized 'From:' addresses
      Customize the address on your outgoing messages to display another one of your addresses instead. Learn more
    • An application for Macs
      The Gmail Notifier for Mac OS X even supports plug-in development.
    • More languages
      Now you can use Gmail in 40 languages: US and UK English, simplified and traditional Chinese, Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese. Learn more
    • More storage
      Storage is an important part of email, which is why Gmail now gives you over 2.5 gigabytes of free space (and growing every day)! Learn more
    • Rich text formatting
      Use fonts, colors, highlighting and other rich formatting options when you compose messages. Learn more
    • An easier way to send up to 10MB of photos
      Gmail now works with Picasa, Google's free photo organizer, so you can easily send photos from your Gmail account. Learn more
    • Support for more browsers
      Basic HTML view lets you access your Gmail messages from almost any computer running almost any web browser. Learn more
    • Free POP access and automatic forwarding
      Access your mail the way you want to. Download your messages. Read them offline. Use your Blackberry or Outlook or any POP-enabled device. Or forward new messages to an email account you specify. You can even switch to other email services without having to worry about losing access to your messages. Think of it as email portability Learn more
    • Import Contacts
      Move all your contacts from Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, and others to Gmail in just a few clicks. Learn more
    • Signature options
      From the settings page, create a signature that's automatically added to the end of all your outgoing messages. Learn more [/SIZE] [/SIZE]
