Free and popular but lacking

Review Source: Capterra

Gmail is an excellent product with a clean design and well organized. It offers free storage, but you pay the price of selling yourself cheap or rather information about yourself.

Pros
The product is obviously cheap or free, popular, easy to create an account, easy to utilize, not replete with advertisements. Integration with other Google applications, like Maps, Businesses, etc.

Cons
When I want to reply to a message, there are portions of the initial message that disappear. So many times, I am looking for contacts in the right side of the page. It takes me a while to remember that the contacts are in the right upper corner.

Pros
We use Google enterprise and have all our business set up using google as the platform for our mail delivery system. Easy to manage, customized emails and easy to access.

Cons
I find it on the expensive side. Would much prefer to add more customized emails but find it too expensive to add more.

Gmail is an absolute pleasure to use. It is cheap, efficient and of high quality

Pros
The bulk mailing feature is great as you can easily send a group email to multiple recipients. In addition, the email scheduling feature is also very handy as you can draft emails in advance and Gmail will automatically send.

Cons
I would like Gmail to have a feature which gives detailed statistics of emails that have been opened whenever I send an email to multiple recipients.

User-friendly, convenient, and low-cost email solution

Reviewed 2015-10-19
Review Source: GetApp

I have experience migrating a company to Google Apps for Work, which included an email migration. My current job also uses Google Apps for Work (Gmail), and I use Gmail for my personal & freelance email as well. First off, as an end-user, I have to say that the web interface is very user-friendly. I can easily organize my emails - for personal email, I prefer the pre-sorted tabs, but my work inbox has email separated into Unread, Starred, Important, and then everything else. It makes it easy to prioritize which emails I need to address. Gmail chat is a great way to ask my coworkers quick questions without actually sending an email too, and all chats are automatically archived so I can go back and re-read them if need be. Gmail also has fantastic uptime - I never have trouble accessing it. My email migration experience was considerably less smooth than my end-user experience. I was left to parse Google's documentation, which at the time consisted of a trove of outdated pages with contradicting information. The web-based email migration tool, which I dared only run for one user at a time, would often error out and worked at a snail's pace. The response on their support forums was almost nonexistant, but essentially amounted to "this is broken, we don't know when it will be fixed." When you've just convinced your boss that Google Apps for Work is the way to go, this is somewhat frustrating (to say the least).

Pros
Very user-friendly, rock-solid uptime, low-cost.

Cons
Somewhat convoluted, outdated and error-prone email migration methods. Lack of useful customer support.

Gmail is the most accessible email service by far. It can easily integrate with other services. And on a personal level, organizing my inbox has never been this easy.

Pros
Product is easy to use and very intuitive. Cheap for all the features made available to you. Very easy to sync up with businesses to use as their primary email.

Cons
Some features are difficult to figure out. For example, creating inbox filters sometimes doesn't capture all the similar messages you want to be filtered out.

You can easily contact other collegues or partners. And it is very cheap! Also it cones with drive, where you can work in documents with otters at the same time.

Cons
You have to have an Gmail account to mail to, you can't use someone's phone number. Also it is not very modern anymore...

Great for small businesses that want a business email address

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-10-20
Review Source: GetApp

It's cool to have your own business email address -- even though it is housed in Gmail :)

Pros
I like that I can have an affordable business email address for a very small price. It's important for every business to have @businessname.com instead of @gmail.com. It makes them look professional -- and Gmail helps do that.

Cons
Tracking the email trail is very tricky. If I've opened an email before, when I open it again, I might not be taken back to the latest message on the trail. This has been Gmail's weakness ever since and it has not been addressed.

Completely satisfied using the free Gmail

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I am using the free Gmail account and overall I am satisfied.

Pros
I’ve been using Gmail since it came out. Like any other email services, it provides fast, secure, and reliable service. But unlike MS Outlook, Gmail is free to use. Another feature I like is the chat. When I am using my PC, I can use the email and chat at the same time. It’s also tied up with Drive so you can attach or save any attachments to your Google Drive. Syncing is also a feature I like about Gmail. You will not miss any message across your devices when this feature is turned on. Just make sure you create a strong password to secure your devices just in case one of them gets lost.

Cons
On the other side, I haven’t found a way to prioritize email like you can do with Outlook. In Outlook you can categorize your email as important and not important so the recipient will know the importance of the email. Another thing I disliked is the pricing if you want to use a personal domain. You need to subscribe to Google Suite if you want to use your domain name as email address. This can be very expensive especially if you are only using it for personal stuff. Hopefully Google will allow only Gmail subscriptions which of course be cheaper.

Gmail makes life so much easier and it is very cheap, it just uses data. It is very trust worthy and very professional when using it for work purposes. It is very reliable and to be honest I am very happy just using Gmail.

Pros
I like the level of security that Gmail has. I feel very secure knowing that my information will not be accessed easily just by anyone. They have created security measures that make it very easy to use should you be the one accessing it but very difficult for a person trying to hack into your account. I like how I can customize my Gmail account into whatever back ground I like. It feels unique to me and that is very good for a person like me likes taking things and making them my own. I can use my Gmail account for my professional life as well as my personal life. It fits whatever environment I intend on sending email to.

Cons
When I first recieve a particular email from someone or a company that is deemed as a spam email by others I wish my Gmail would ask me if I would like it to be received under my spam folder or they could flag it then I give them the go ahead. Sometimes I wait for an important email only to find that it's under my spam folder and that's the one thing that I do not like about my Gmail account

Great! It's got an easy to use mobile app, a dead simple web interface, and you can use your google account to log into hundreds of other sites!

Pros
It's easy, it's cheap, and it's nearly always reliable. Oh, and every single person you know has a gmail account. For businesses, it's been good to integrate into our systems, and has meant that we don't need to keep another server in house.

Cons
Sometimes giving up the control of our email is a problem. For example, when Google has an issue, we can't communicate to anyone that there's an issue. When we kept our own mail server, we could send internal messages, even if the outside internet went down!
