Gmail is a free, search-based
e-mail (Web mail) service, whichis accessible from a Webbrowser anywhere in theworld. The backbone of Gmailis a powerful Google searchengine that quickly finds anymessage an account owner hasever sent or received. When Gmail displays an e-mail, it automatically shows all the replies to that e-mail as well, so users can view a message in the context of a conversation. There are no pop-ups or untargeted banner ads in Gmail, which places relevant text ads and links to related Web pages adjacent to e-mail messages.
Email wherever you workGmail works
on any computer or mobile devicewith a data connection and offline support letsyou keep working even when you’redisconnected. Whether youre at your desk, ina meeting, or on a plane, your email is there. Work fast, save time Gmail is designed to make you more productive. 25GB of storage means you never have to delete anything, powerful search lets you find everything, and labels and filters help you stay organized.Connect with peopleYour inbox isnt just about messages, its aboutpeople too.

Using labelsLabels help you organize
your messages into categories -- work,family, to do, read later, jokes, recipes, any category you want.Labels do all the work that folders do, but with an added bonus:you can add more than one to a message. Only you can see yourlabels, so whether you mark a message with "Best friend" or "Readlater," the sender will never know. What makes Gmails labels better than folders is that you can "put" any message in any number of folders. An email can belong to the "most urgent" messages as well as to a particular project at work, for example.
