Gmail is my favorite email service offered by Google. One of the highlights of using Gmail is its simple and perfect for everyone. I'm using Gmail to send emails as well as to save my data. Gmail gives you a good 15 GB of space across Google Drive, Gmail, and Google Photos. Google counts your ...

Looks like junk mail as it is to overused. For personal still good and for business - in the old days it was great. Now that accounts are so much cheaper you can be better served to create an address which announces your business in its title....can not service all the mail in multiple accounts

If I could only have one email service it would be Gmail

03/07/2017

Super feature packed and very intuitive to use. When I train someone to Gmail usage it does not take long. It integrates well across platforms and apps.

Pros

very intuitive and easy to use. extremely flexible.

Cons

You can not work offline if your internet is down. Email threads are stitched together in a strange fashion. It can be difficult to read a whole email thread.

Modern email for the modern employee

09/06/2017

Pros

I loved using gmail for my work because I use it personally and find the experience really simple and consistent. Gmail offers a powerful and intuitive solution for reviewing and responding to mail by organizing your mail into separate inboxes. It learns what mail is important and what is not.

Cons

I think one thing that could be improved is the settings screen. It is a bit overwhelming and I am always caught in the headlines when I venture into there. Other than that it's great!

Gmail is a staple for personal and business use

09/06/2017

After I was introduced to Gmail when it first came out, I didn't look back. Though other email clients were "prettier," they lacked the essentials for using email for business purposes... which is a part of using Google as a whole - Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Goo.gl, Voice, Analytics, and the list goes on. Setting up a Gmail account will literally give you a home office in a box.

Pros

Ease of use, all of the apps, ability to switch accounts.

Cons

None that I can think of right now... Though a more modern design would be nice.

Email forwarding not always work well, sometimes you can miss some emails, and even get error that settings is not correct, but after few minutes,you might get that email.

I like Gmail because of its ease of use on the internet or via an email program, my personal favourite is Microsoft Outlook. By using a Gmail addy if I change my ISP I have not got to let all my contacts know of a any change of email as the Gma\il ports with me.

Pros

Access to maps, Google Earth, Search engine, Mail forwarding, Etc.
