About Gmail

Gmail is a cloud-based solution that helps businesses streamline communication across the organization via emails. It enables professionals to sort inbox messages into various categories and place emails into new tabs using a drag-and-drop interface. Using Gmail's confidential mode, businesses can set an expiration date for messages and secure information by preventing unauthorized access. Managers can create personalized accounts for employees and view the schedule of upcoming meetings on an in-built calendar. Additionally, it offers mobile applications for iOS and Android devices, which lets users manage multiple accounts and receive automated notifications regarding new emails. Gmail comes with an application programming interface (API), which allows organizations to modify the system and integrate it with various third-party systems. The product is available for free and support is extended via documentation.

The best E-mail service provider available in the market.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the service that Gmail is offering. It has replaced outlook & Yahoo mail almost completely.

Pros

We have been using Gmail workplace from G-suite. This is the most native e-mailing software with all features available. It has a great management process onboard with automatic alignment for priority. It includes a great notification system & faster delivery.

Cons

I have no issues with this software. But It sometimes picks the normal email as a spam email. This is a minor issue though.

Alternatives Considered

Yahoo Mail

Reasons for Choosing Gmail

It has a better overview of the email. A better Ui with faster message delivery. It has easy access from all cross-platform devices.

The best out there - still not good enough

I think it has been a good experience overall, but I really hate the way they have things on offer (like space) and then they retract that and charge you for it when you get used to it.

Pros

Spam blocker is better than anything else out there.
The inbox look is clean, and emails tend to get through without outages and problems.
Calendar management is great.
Set up with own domain is exceptional.
Great layout of Google One, personal administration space.

Cons

The surveillance associated with Google, and intrusion into everything.
Rubbish integration with things like home automation (none).
Google not providing the functionality of things like IFTTT, etc. (so you have to buy one of those services instead or get used to poorly designed alternatives in the suite).
Contacts management is awful.
Terrible integration for multiple work accounts on mobile phone.
Ridiculously bad layout of their Google Workspaces administration space.

Nothing. It is the perfect email platform.

No other alternatives for our business

We didn't really want to use Gmail but there are very few alternatives for our business. We use Google Workspace for our company so unfortunately we are king of stuck with Gmail rather than choosing it ourselves. This is mainly due to the fact we we already pay for Gmail storage.

Pros

Integrating our customised business email addresses into Gmail is probably the most useful feature Gmail provides.

Cons

From the start of using Gmail for our business email addresses we constantly get a "something is wrong" alert on our accounts. Formatting doesn't work when cut and pasting other fonts or colours, and the general experience of Gmail is, well, clunky, if that's the word. While it offers lots of custom features it is hard to find out how to use them as the support is just a Google Forum, therefore spending far too long trying to find the right answer. Finally the limit to file size attachments is frustrating. As a media company I send large attachments and after surpassing the 25mb limit a link is then provided to the other remailing attachments. I'm then going back and reducing file sizes as it doesn't look professional in my opinion.

Gmail is great to use

Gmail has been much easier than the other emails I use. I

Pros

I like that it's easy to separate my emails and prioritize with just a click of a button. That I don't have to separate them myself or click each email to save into a diff folder.

Cons

There isn't not one thing specific that I do not like about it. I'm pleased.
