New Gmail Features

Gmail, everybody’s favourite web mail, well except maybe for Charles Wright, has just updated with new features.

What’s New at the Gmail help centre tells us that now there is a Gmail notifier (a small windows app that lets you know when new mail has arrived along with its sender and subject), searching contacts has been made easier, you can forward mail to another account and you can save drafts.

Interestingly the mail forwarding feature is ‘free during the test’ which makes me wonder what other premium features are being planned for Gmail.


I’ve just installed Notifier and it has the option to set Gmail as the default sender of email for when you click on mailto: links. Pretty neat if you’re a heavy Gmail user.
