GMail alternatives

GMail
Gmail is a free, advertising-supported email service provided by Google. Users may access Gmail as secure webmail, as well via POP3 or IMAP protocols. Gmail's spam filtering features a community-driven system: when any user marks an email as spam, this provides information to help the system identify similar future messages for all Gmail users. Google also provides GMail alternative for business - G Suite Mail.



Here are the latest news about GMail:

19.09.17 Gmail starts converting addresses and contact info into links


Gmail is starting to automatically detect and convert addresses, phone numbers and contacts into links. The feature, which begins rolling out today for Gmail and Inbox on Android, iOS and the web, should be familiar to most users because almost every other major email client has it already. Address links will open Google Maps, clicking on an email address launches a new compose window in your email client and phone numbers dial a new call in Hangouts or your default phone app. The feature will be visible to all users within three days. So Gmail gets more time-saving than alternatives


2017 Gmail gets Smart Reply feature


Google updated Gmail app with an AI-driven "Smart Reply" feature that predicts responses you may want to send.  The feature uses machine learning to analyze your emails and suggest quick, bite-sized responses you may want to send. Smart Reply suggests three responses based on the email you received. Once you’ve selected one, you can send it immediately or edit your response starting with the Smart Reply text. Either way, you’re saving time. Gmail Smart Replies are available now in both the iOS and Android app in English.


2017 Gmail adds add-on support


Google is adding support for third-party add-ons that can integrate directly into Gmail. There are plenty of services that add functionality to Gmail already, of course, but they typically do that through a browser extension. Users will be able to install these add-ons from the G Suite Marketplace. That’s the same marketplace that already hosts add-ons for Google’s other productivity tools like Docs and Sheets. Users who install one of these new add-ons will be able to use them on the web and in Google’s mobile Gmail apps It’ll take a bit before this goes live, though. Google says this new feature is coming “later this year.”


2017 Exchange Tasks now available on Gmail app


Last year Google added support for Exchange accounts in Gmail app for Android so you can use one familiar mail app for both work and personal business. Now you can also sync your tasks with Exchange so you can always stay on top of your task list, even when you’re on the go. You can create a task, edit its date or priority, and flag an email as a to-do for later response. With a unified tasks list, it's easy for you to focus on your important tasks and check things off the list once you’re done. The simple swipe to mark as complete can be just as rewarding. Gmail app for Android is enterprise-ready, so your IT department can securely deploy it. Gmail app also works with managed configurations so you can skip any complicated setup steps.


2016 Gmail for iOS Gets Undo Send button


This is the first time in four years Google has updated its iOS app for Gmail. The new version is a lot like the Android version, which has been present on Android devices for the past two years. The new design is the result of customer demand for “highly requested features” like easier message deletion, easier archiving and easier email management, he said.  One of the welcome features is “Undo Send,” which already exists on Google's desktop Inbox service. Undo send gives users a short window of opportunity to recall an email.  Google also improved search and spelling suggestions for terms in search.
