Try all the densities – comfortable, cozy and compact and check, which best suits your style.

Personal indicators

All Under One Roof

If you are using multiple Gmail accounts and are tired to keep signing on and off from each one of them to read respective emails, your irksome predicament is now over. Here is how you can do it. Go to the ‘settings’, click ‘Accounts and Import’, further click on ‘Add a POP3 mail account you own’. Now you can respond to every email through one screen and do not have to juggle between many accounts.

Keep Archiving

If you are a prominent user of Gmail, you must be sending large files through your mailbox. These files take the storage place and do not allow new emails to hit your account. To avoid such a mishap, it is better you archive the less important ones and retrieve whenever you need them.
