What is Gmail?

Gmail is a free, advertising-supported email service offered as part of Google Workspace (formerly G Suite). With 15GB of email storage provided for free, users can access Gmail as secure webmail, as well as via POP3 or IMAP4.

Key benefits of using Gmail

• Choose a professional looking custom email - e.g. joe@yourcompanyname.com - for your company and team members to use.

• Host video meetings with up to 15 participants, straight from your Gmail inbox, with Hangouts.

• Access your email account on Android, iPhone, and Blackberry devices, via native mobile apps or the Gmail mobile web app.

• Automatically sort and label incoming emails with Gmail's color-coded inbox filters, similar to 'folders' in old email programs, but emails can have multiple labels applied.

• Recall or 'unsend' emails for a short period of time after you've clicked "send".

Pros
I have great experience with that solution, I recommended to use this solution it's totally secure and free of cost.
Excellent overall, keeps me organized, and the ability to make folders for emails is great for organizing business records.
The ease of switching between screens and the auto save feature is a life saver. Gmail's ease of use is wonderful for all.
Cons
There is also no customer support for Gmail so if you have an error or problem you are on your own which can be frustrating at times.
Can easily be hacked if your phone or laptop is lost. Hard to recover if forgot password.
I dislike the way it filters emails into spam sometimes. I have to monitor spam every so often to make sure I didn't miss any important emails.

Gmail is my favorite email software and the BEST spam blocker.

Reviewed 2 months ago

Gmail is a very fast, secure, and reliable email software. It has the best spam blocker out there and makes it very easy to organize and manage your emails. I've also never had a problem integrating it with other applications, which makes it a productive timesaver. Add the mobile optimization, and you have a great software for both personal and business uses. I highly recommend

Pros

Gmail is the best spam blocker! I've tried other email software, but Gmail has been the only one that actually blocks spam emails. Gmail is also really fast when receiving emails there are no delays. I also find the searching/filtering function to be fast and reliable. it helps me prioritize my emails, stay organized, and work efficiently.

Cons

I don't have any negative feedback. I've been totally happy with my Gmail account.

You probably already use it, why not use it more?

Reviewed 2 months ago

I've been on gmail since it came out decades ago, and can't imagine going with any other service for my daily driver email use.

Pros

It's free for normal use, and for Gapps use it's cheaper than Microsoft's offering. It organizes your email into 3 or 4 categories by default that really helps stay on top of things.

Cons

There's been a few changes over the years that have made it so when you go to sign up you get asked things that aren't relevant to needing email. Google doesn't need to know my gender for email to work and asking me it is both invasive to ask and untrustable in the current climate to have that information stored by some corporation.

Plays nice with others

Reviewed a month ago

I like Gmail as a back office or B2B system for my operations. I would not really use this for my customer facing communication.

Pros

I like that Gmail integrates so well with other Google products/programs like Keep. I like the smooth workflow this provides.

Cons

I don't like how tricky it is to sort and control my incoming mail. I'm not fond of the tag feature and some settings hide my new mail without my realizing until too late.

Gmail makes email simpler

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall I had a good experience with Gmail as it allowed me to explore additional products offered by Google Workspace. Gmail integrated notes and Reminders work perfectly well with Mobile apps and Sync is great. Overall I would always recommend Gmail for primary email storage.

Pros

I have found Gmail comes with lot of utilities. Emails Management, Calendar, Google Drive, Google Sheet, Notes etc. These tools makes all in one easy for you to manage your personal or Business portfolio. Gmail free accounts have more than sufficient space for Drive and Emails and the Google Workspace comes with lot of Admin advantages and products.

Cons

Syncing Gmail emails with third-party applications is a back draw. The IMAP or POP is not reliable and loses connectivity. Google Should join its email through Exchange to work with third-party apps.

We could see a reduction in the amount of email spam we received. You can use a lot of services with your Gmail account. It is easy to set up on computers and mobile devices.

Pros

Easy to use, accessible, and easy to administrate (many users). Space and functions are perfect for small and medium businesses.

Cons

For users, it is hard to change from Outlook to Gmail interface.
