Steve, currently my inbox shows the last message. Sometimes the threads change toic. I want to make the messages show up oldest to newest. can i do that?

Hey Steve, I have a question for anyone at this point. is there a way to do a mail merge from google sheets and then print instead of sending an email, if I choose to do so? If yes, which add-on would you recommend that would not eventually charge me... If there is such a thing! TY in advance. (Love Your Channel BTW)

You have to go through the Google Password recovery labyrinth. I wish I had some shortcut but I don't know of one.

Hey Steve, Thank you so much. I am so excited to use boomerang. This will make a big difference with my follow through.

Steve, love your channel - looking for something (an extension if possible) to give me read reports w/o the party I sent the email to knowing. I used to have one through Hubspot but they no longer offer it. It was terrific. It would show me each time someone opened up the email I sent them...hoping you have a solution - keep up the amazing work, and thanks so much!

hello sir ! when some person sending email to me so how to know the location that person send email to my ?
Hi Steve, thanks for sharing this video. I also installed the add-ons you talk about in this video and maybe it's coincidence but the order of the add-ons in your video is the best first and the least interesting last, however all 3 are pretty useful I think and I will try them out to see if I find them useful... I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna love the first add-on and I think I'm gonna be using that one long term. I'm sharing this video and a few more on my social media profiles and I want to write a blog post about Gmail to help people get the most out of it and your videos are very good and you show exactly what I think is important so I want to use a couple of your videos if you're okay with that... I would like to put the best videos in one blog post and maybe do another one for Google Drive, Chrome, Forms and the hidden gems and it would be subscription based that's why I'm asking if you're okay with it because I don't want any legal issues or being accused of any copyright infringement so it's important that you give me an answer to this question before I go on with this. I wish you the best, Ricardo Penders CEO [email protected]®Ez_

Use this in gmail search, no plugin needed: larger:20mb before:2016-01-01 Will search for mail larger than 20mb and before Jan 1st 2016. Change size and date as needed. "larger:" and "before:" (also "after:") can be used independently or in any combination. Thinking about boomerang, but I'm wondering how much data they mine from your gigs of emails and sell to other companies...google does enough of that as it is..

Well done. 3 I have never heard of and I find all 3 useful in my day to day use of Gmail. Thank you. I did see the comments below and agree with your assessment of Rapportive and have switched to Full Contact as well.
Ullimately (1 year ago)
Rapportive is rubbish. only gives you a result for someone on one single rare social networking site...for anything else...dont know... dont know... and Boomerang? Installed it, looked at it, deleted it.

FIND BIG MAIL, how is that better than just using gmail advanced search and finding email of anysize you want... such as "Search all emails larger than 4 MB" and so forth?

Boomerang, somewhat like Outlook?
Akilah Pitts (2 years ago)
Hey +dottotech, I'm not sure if you've found this out already since this video is from 2014, but I, too, don't like when they add extra labels so I use opt to 'HIDE THE LABEL' using the little drop-down arrow next to the menu item's name. This way, the label is still there when I need it but isn't visible. Hope that helps! =)

We love Google Apps and cant live without it.  So much so we even made our own Desktop App for it (for Windows and Mac) Easily access all your Google accounts from one simple interface! https://www.GetGamma.net/
I like the "Mailto: for Gmail" extension for Chrome. When you click on a mail link on a site it will open in Gmail instead of trying to open Outlook.

Are you still using Rapportive? I went to add the extension and the recent reviews are not very good. Any updates on this one? Thank you!
dottotech (2 years ago)
No, they got bought by LinkedIn and sort of ruined. I have been using Full Contact
Varun .G.Pillai (2 years ago)
Awesome. but i am bit skeptic about giving someone else , access to my personal mail!.
You know if you use anything from Google that they know everything about you, your friends and your family and if you're also using an Android device and you need to have you Google account connected to it as soon as you want to go online and get your apps updated and that will reveal even more about you to Google. Google of course isn't sharing that publicly but I'm a beta tester for them and an insider so believe me when I'm saying that Google probably knows more about you than you know about yourself and they are tracking your online behavior already for years and you're not even aware of that. Be a sceptic all your want, I know it already too late for everyone so instead of being stuck in your little world and holding yourself back you should get yourself out of the way, open your eyes, do what you love and live a much happier life.

Nice vid, thanks. btw you can use gmail filters for that purpose to find big attachments. You can even set the size in MB, with conditions.

LMTFx (2 years ago)
Why give someone authorization to "View and Modify" your emails?!? Just to find the size? You can do this easily by searching "larger:5m" (emails larger then 5Mb), etc -- https://gmail.googleblog.com/2012/11/search-for-emails-by-size-and-more-in.html

ovalteens (2 years ago)
Great tips! With FindBigMail, aren't you worried about security and allowing someone to access your inbox like that?
LMTFx (2 years ago)
That's not true. Before they can send you the size report, you have to give authorization to "View and modify" all your emails. If this isn't a security issue... Then you live in Disney World!
dottotech (2 years ago)
Not really, they are looking at file size.

I know this is an old video but... is there a.free way in g-mail to send  Read Receipts? . Because the free Gmail there is not. And I can't find a free way to send one. And  I do not use google chrome. I use  Internet explorer11 and Microsoft edge. I don't use  Mozilla thunderbird... like I use to before I got my SSD drive because... that would add writes to my SSD drive because.... Mozilla thunderbird is on your desktop and so are your e-mails are to... unlike g-mail that is only on the web. Mozilla thunderbird is a desktop email client that works with any e-mail even Gmail.

I added Rapportive and can see the Linkedin profiles. However, the most useful part of the addon for me was the ability to see your recent correspondence with the person you are emailing. This is not showing. Is there something else I need to do?

+Andrew Hall It is not you, it is Rapportive, they are reducing the features. Now I am using Discoverly instead...

I also find this video usefull, in particular Boomerang that I installed at once. But having used it for some days, I wondered, is this legal? I mean, Boomerang gather so much information about the recipient and gives so much insight that it makes me think that Boomerang is too efficient. (Legal also depends under which legislation you are). What do you think?

Hi Steve, I know this is an old YouTube, but will Rapportive work with Gmails new In Box by Gmail
Tracie Oliver (2 years ago)
Natassha Hu (2 years ago)
hello: found out gmail does allow one to find large attachment. see belowTo search for attachments in Gmail, the search parameter is has:attachment – this will bring up all emails with an attachment. To find attachments over a certain size – to clean up your email – you can do this using size:. So, to search for large attachments you could use the search size:10M – this will show all emails with attachments larger than 10MBCombine this search with the older_than parameter to find mail older than a certain period. For example older_than:2y will find mail more than 2 years old; older_than:30d finds mail over 30 days old.Thank you for the info on boomerang.
dottotech (2 years ago)
+NATASSHA HU Thanks so much for that! Great tips!
Ted Fines (2 years ago)
You might want to update your findings on rapportive. For instance the 'Raplets' section is no longer on their site. The 'Notes' option doesn't appear for me either. Overall the plugin looks great in your video, but so far I'd give it a "meh" in practice, so maybe they have changed, and for the worse?

Great tip, how do you add comments and view recent mail? The option doesn't appear to work on my Gmail.
Wayne Louis (2 years ago)
+dottotech Thank you for your reply. To be clearer on my comment, in the window to right of Gmails inbox window under the LinkedIn information box, I have noticed that I don't have any option to 'add a note for this person' or recent mail option so I can search for emails from that particular recipient. I was also wondering if I this particular feature is still active or not?
dottotech (2 years ago)
+Wayne Louis I'm at a loss to help you, not certain exactly what it is you're looking for.
