Receive Gmail’s Powerful Features On Other Email Accounts

Gmailify

The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group. -Ed

Non-Gmail accounts are getting an upgrade with the “Gmailify”application. Get the full features of Google email without the need of a Gmail account. Now, you have the option of keeping your old email address from another provider and receive the complete features of a Gmail account. When somebody enables Gmailify, they’re getting the benefits of a Gmail account without moving to the @gmail domain.

The Benefits of Gmailify:

  • Users get spam protection. The Gmail service identifies spam from patterns and user preferences. Spam gets sent to a separate folder and, at the top of the email, will be a label that explains why the message got sent to spam. Google filters the spam from your email.
  • Emails will be automatically sorted into tabs such as “social” and “update.” This is a default organizational tool that lets users get to the important stuff quickly and enjoy the fun stuff without pause.

Unsubscriber App Helps You Clean Up Your Inbox

Unsubscriber

Spam after spam after spam in your inbox? You probably don’t remember when (or why) you subscribed to some of those lists in the first place, but unsubcribing can be a pain sometimes. An app that can help you out is the aptly-named Unsubscriber. Just fire it up and log in to your Gmail accounts. It’ll parse your inbox and present you with a list of newsletters and mailing lists that you’re currently subscribed to.

Then comes the easy part: just swipe left to unsubscribe and swipe to the right if you want to keep that particular subscription. Easy as pie.

You can download Unsunscriber for iOS here.

Type Your Letter, and ‘Snail Mail My Email’ Will Write and Send It For You

Snail Mail My Email

 

There’s just something about snail mail that makes it mean more than an email or instant message. By “it,” we don’t mean just the message, but the whole thing in general. I suppose a lot more effort goes into writing a letter and taking the time to mail it out versus typing it up and hitting the “send” button.

San Francisco artist Ivan Cash gets that a letter is often more than just a letter to the recipient. So in 2011, he started the Snail Mail my Email project where he invited people to shoot him an email, which he would then write and mail to the intended recipient for free. The project has since evolved into a week-long event where hundreds of people volunteer to write letters sent in by people from all over the world.

RemoveMe Lets You Unsubscribe From E-mail Lists With A Single Click

RemoveMe

Subscribing to email lists is relatively easier compared to unsubscribing from them. Some hide the unsubscribe link so you’ll (presumably) give up on trying to unsubscribe. Others redirect to an invalid unsubscribe page or instruct you to send them an email requesting to be removed from the list instead. The most annoying case is the one where you’ve already followed their instructions on how to unsubscribe to a T and get the message that you’ve already been unsubscribed. Then a day passes, and you get another email from them again.

Aiming to make the entire process of unsubscribing easier for everyone is RemoveMe. It’s essentially a browser extension that adds an “Unsubscribe” beside the email subject in your inbox, so you can just click that and it’ll do the rest for you. Easy, right?

Now People Can Send Self-Destructing Messages with SecretInk

Secretink

I’m sure you’ve heard of Snapchat by now and what it does. It’s an app that lets users send text, photos, and videos that are viewable to the intended recipient for a limited time. At this point, you’ll more or less know what SecretInk is all about since it’s being dubbed as the Snapchat of email.

The service was recently launched by PowerInbox, who wanted to fill the void that was left when other encrypted email providers like Silent Circle and Lavabot chose to fold rather than wait for the NSA to come after them. SecretInk can be used with Gmail and other web-based email services via PowerInbox’s add-on.

FreeSpace Helps You Keep Your Gmail Account In Check

FreeSpace

Gmail is pretty generous with the amount of space they give you. If you have a free account, you get 10 gigabytes. When you upgrade to one of their plans, this limit is pushed up to 25 gigabytes. You’d have to be the type who archives everything in order to reach the limit, because it seems highly unlikely that you ever will. But hey, it could happen–and if you think you’re bordering on full email capacity, then you need FreeSpace.

Anonymous Hacks Into Syrian President’s Email — Password Was 12345

By David Ponce

Syria’s uprising could take on a new twist in the coming days as news that hacker group Anonymous has gained access to Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad’s personal email account surfaces. Unfortunately for the leet pride of most of Anonymous’ hackers, they didn’t have to do much work to gain entry as Al-Assad’s password was simply “12345”. Once in, the group had access to 78 different inboxes belonging to either the president or his staffers. We have no doubt that these emails are being read as we type this and once the good bits start to surface, it’ll be interesting to see who gets embarrassed. We just need to look back a few months at the fallout from the WikiLeaks cables to see how damaging this type of information can be to governments worldwide.

We should soon find out more. In the meantime, if your password is something as stupid as “12345” or even “password”, do yourself a favor and just go change it. It doesn’t even need to be anything too elaborate; a short string of hard-to-remember unrelated random characters is less secure than a longer string of say, a few related words. Like “idontlikerememberingpasswords”.
