About 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.

Gmail automatically sorts emails into separate, customizable tabs (e.g. Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates) which users can add or remove as desired. Both inbound and outbound messages can be translated into other languages in Gmail, where users can also respond to invites, track packages, and leave reviews, without leaving the app.

Starring and custom color labels let users neatly organize email threads (conversations), while Google-powered search allows users to locate messages from any thread, quickly and easily.

With Gmail's Hangouts, users can instant message with others, as well as host video calls with up to 15 participants, straight from their inbox. The platform is accessible from any mobile device, via either native mobile apps for Android or iPhone/iPad, or via a native mobile web app.

Gmail is the longest emails manager that i have use, either for personal use and business use. Throughout the years, Gmail has expended and giving better service for me especially when all the attachment file will be scanned first for any virus or malware before it will be available to be downloaded, it really help put ease to my mind.

Pros

Everyone has at least one Gmail account and i am one of them. Managing my personal email account is really easy as i can use it from my smartphone. They also has a good detection rate for spam email and i almost don't have to check my spam inbox anymore, as they really good at separating between legit and spam email.

Cons

There are not easy way to delete the email in my inbox. I have to select each of the email to delete it and no way to select everything in bulk, and delete them altogether. There are also no option to archive my email to off sites storage, everything is only accessible online and not offline.

Gmail is a good software for companies with large and expansive employee positions. It holds a wider and more expansive business operation in dealing with sending, receiving, holding meetings, etc. I myself found Gmail a good email provider but, It just had issues that I did not want to deal with.

Pros

I liked the personalization settings. Themes, etc.

Cons

It was difficult to find information and navigating to find a specific function was difficult.
