Official Gmail Blog: Last chance for Gmail stickers

Last chance for Gmail stickers

Friday, February 06, 2009 3:01 PM

Since we first posted about Gmail stickers, we've sent out thousands of sticker packs, enjoyed reading hundreds of notes from Gmail fans around the world, and even received a not-so-happy call from the local post office about overflowing our P.O. box. From love letters to feature requests, thank you for all the mail! Here are some highlights:

Sparky, one of the Gmail team dogs, with our box of incoming letters

A doctored mother's day card and a birth announcement

Some toys

And other stickers we got in return

If you haven't sent in your self-addressed stamped envelope yet, it's not too late. Just make sure it's postmarked by February 14th, 2009 and sent to:

Send me some Gmail stickers already
P.O. Box 391420

New in Labs: Multiple Inboxes

Thursday, February 05, 2009 5:43 PM

I'm seriously into filters and labels. All the email I get related to Flash goes under my "flash" label, everything about paragliding goes under "flying," and they all skip my inbox because that's how I like to stay organized. But when new email arrives I have to switch to the "flash" label first, then click on "paragliding," etc. I wanted a way to see it all at once.

So when I heard about Gmail Labs, I started implementing a Labs feature in my 20% time that would help me (and you!) spend less time monitoring important messages that may end up getting filtered away. Starting today, you can try Multiple Inboxes, a Labs experiment which makes it possible to have more than one 'inbox' in your default Gmail view.

An image is worth a thousand words, so here's what my inbox looks like:

In addition to a quick view of my important labels, I also like to keep all my starred and draft messages in separate panels.

After you turn on Multiple Inboxes from the Labs tab under Settings, you can configure what you want to see, as well as set the number of messages displayed and the positioning of your panels from the Multiple Inboxes section under Settings.

However you choose to use it, let us know how we can improve the Multiple Inboxes experiment — all feedback is welcome.
