Hmm, cool. Not that I have many opportunities to need to do that, but it is good to know.

I think Drew should sue Gmail for patent infringement.

They also have Google Drive, which allows you to send emails up to 10GB in size.

No one outside of GMail will be able to receive it, but hey, it's a feature.
 
2012-11-27 09:13:04 PM
I get really annoyed when other forums don't have this feature. It's so simple, so brilliant.
 
2012-11-27 09:13:59 PM
Good info to have but I use Shemail.
 
Their rates are better and if you close your eyes you can't tell the difference.

On what grounds?
 
2012-11-27 09:34:02 PM
This is the kind of thing that would be in the users' manual, if there was one.

You don't need grounds to sue anymore.

At the same time, this is the most awesome and most annoying feature of Fark's forums. Annoying when I use the find feature in Chrome to locate a particular post, leaving text highlighted before I click "reply" to that post.
 
2012-11-27 09:52:21 PM
Hasn't that been a feature of tons of mail clients going back to the beginning of POP :P

This is not a secret for most people using Gmail.

What do you base that on? I've been using Gmail for what, four years now? I've never seen it and have never met anyone in person who's known it was there.
 
2012-11-27 10:17:37 PM
My favorite Gmail secret: the "Send & Archive" feature, installable from the Labs. Great for when you want to reply to an email and then have it disappear from your inbox.

I noticed this on Fark awhile ago and was tickled-pink over it.

Thanks for the article - I didn't realize Gmail had this feature.

Even more annoying is that this doesn't work here now but it used to work a couple years ago.

The best feature of gmail is the imap server.
 
2012-11-27 10:38:39 PM
Did you know that if you highlight something and click CTL and X at the same time it will cut the highlighted portion out? And then clicking CTL and V at the same time pastes it back in!

/bitter cuz I wanted to know something cool about gmail and instead it was something obvious
/i got rick romerolled.
 
2012-11-27 10:51:45 PM
...that's been a part of Apple Mail for a long time now. People didn't know Gmail could do it, too? Huh.
 
2012-11-27 10:52:19 PM

RoyHobbs22: cool, it


You cool it. Buster.
 
2012-11-27 10:53:55 PM
If that's the best secret gmail feature then there are no good secret gmail features.
 
2012-11-27 11:02:34 PM

This About That: This is the kind of thing that would be in the users' manual


Now THIS is a nifty feature!
 
2012-11-27 11:06:19 PM
It's not Gmail, it's Fark.com.

violentsalvation: something somewhere


Holy crap!!! I didn't know this existed before today!!!
 
2012-11-27 11:32:25 PM
HTML mode?

actually that toggle isn't in plain sight at all from the crappified (tabletized?) version. Was first prompted for it when I had a slow wireless connection. Accidentally turned it off and couldn't find again without doing an external search. Found it here.

1. go to google.com
2. type in "do a "barrel roll" and hit enter.
 
2012-11-28 02:26:01 AM
Couldn't one do this in Hotmail?
 
2012-11-28 02:32:25 AM
But does it censor Social Security Numbers automatically, like Fark?

XXX-XX-XXXX

It's OKAY...

pup.socket: The best feature of gmail is the imap server.


This. POP3 on Gmail archives the messages once they are downloaded by your email client. That gets really annoying if you dual boot or have multiple devices/workstations.

/I use IMAP on my EVO 4G LTE.
//I like the HTC mail client better than the Gmail app
///I have no use for most of the other features
