Turning in Google Inbox for Gmail
November 5, 2015
Google Inbox is a really interesting experiment. The point of the service is to take “old fashion” email and turn the interface on its head. These are great aspirations and I hope they succeed. Basically the second Google Inbox was available for us Google Apps users, I had switched over to it. Both on computer and mobile I’ve been using only Google Inbox for the last 6 months it’s been available. However, even with all the cool new features, I find myself slowly migrating back to Gmail.
Google Apps Migration for Exchange – Tips, Tricks, and other Notes
April 12, 2012
Earlier this year I engineered a move of email services from Exchange to Google Apps. Any change of email provider can be quite tricky, but thankfully Google provides a tool to assist in the migration. That tool is “Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange” (GAMME). When I ran through this process I learned a lot of useful bits that I hadn’t seen documented elsewhere. Some seem to be obvious and some are more tricky. The key to remember is that the core of this migration is actually being done by Outlook — not some specialty tool.
Gmail thinks “This message may not have been sent by...” you
June 29, 2011
Yesterday, Google rolled out a new feature in Gmail which warns you when it isn’t sure who the email was sent by. This warning isn’t due to some confusion on the server side, this issue is because Google wants to force more people to use SPF records and DKIM signatures. Both of these are good technologies to use (I personally have them both enabled), but I worry about Google’s move to “force” this… and how it will effect users.
