Gmail Now Import From Other Services #WIWG #5

gmail3

For more information on the series #WIWG, please click here.

I have to admit, although I love everything that Gmail have to offer, but personally my Hotmail account is doing just as well and getting better too, so far about 88% of my emails and contacts are on Gmail (Mostly thanks to my G1 Android phone that auto syncs with my Google account and therefore my Gmail account)

Towards the end of May 2009, Gmail did what was inevitable,  aside from every cool new feature from Gmail labs, this one is the coolest, it just made millions of lives much easier 😉

You can now easily migrate existing (email and contacts) from Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail and other webmail providers into Gmail. Imported emails will be appropriately sorted by date, and existing folders will become labels (Another cool feature in Gmail). And you can have your messages forwarded from your old account for 30 days, giving you time to take Gmail for a test drive, and I guarantee you that you will love it, I know that 70+ of my students at Wahol.com moved to and upgraded to Gmail, and I know that every single one of them loved it for all that it has to offer.

BTW this new feature is available in all newly-created Gmail accounts, and it is slowly being rolled out to all existing accounts. You’ll know it’s available in your account when you see the “Accounts and Import”  tab under Settings.

For more and to get a free account go to:

Gmail Undo Send: Fix You mistakes!

Email is still king, that’s been proven by every marketer world wide until today. Millions of newsletters and email subscribers, Millions of people start their day with a cop of coffee and email reading.
Billions of emails sent every week, but… What if you made a mistake or forgot to mention something? This even might sound familiar to you, how many times did you hit the send button and thought in a second “ooops!”
Well, now with the new option from Gmail programmers (Thank God for Gmail) There is a new option that you can add that will let you (Undo Send)!
I know for sure that many of you will be racing to download this new option for the many mistakes that happened in the past (My self included) and it’s quite impressive what it does, within seconds after you hit send from your Gmail account, you can re-call that email message and it’s like it was never sent, so you can edit it and fix your mistake or add that extra line you meant to add before.

There is a catch though, this option is only available for 5 seconds after you hit send, I’ll speak for my self when I say that, this is all I need, as I get a red alert in my mind within the 5 seconds after I hit send is there was something missing in this message or if there was a mistake in there somewhere!

The option is free to add to your free Gmail account, and if you still don’t have a Gmail account yet, then what are you waiting for?! To sign up go to www.Gmail.com

Use Digsby and change your life!

Note: 3 Hours of video/audio classes on digsby are available for free on Wahol.com

Ever since I have moved from using Trillian messenger into using digsby, my online life has changed.
To make it simple: Digsby is a universal IM and email application, in other words, you can use your existing IM account (Yahoo IM, AOL’s AIM, Google talk, MSN/Live, ICQ, Jabber or even facebook chat) and use it all within one easy (And light waight) window, and here is the best part: You can use multible accounts from the same providor at the same time. For example: You have 2 Yahoo accounts, one for personal use and one for your business, you can use both accounts at the same time and be logged into both instead of logging off one account to log in to the new one.

You can even open multible chats within one chat window, kinda like tab browsing in Firefox. Cool!

Another cool feature is that it will allow you to combine multible buddies if one person have more than one account (For example: one account on Yahoo IM and a Google talk account) you can combine them both to appear as one.

Not satisfied!

There are 2 more great features:

1. You get email notifications from your Gmail, MSN/Hotmail/Live, Yahoo mail, AOL email, IMAP and pop accounts. And you can reply directly from digsby!

2. (And that’s my favorite featuere) Social networking: Stay connected without having to go to your browser on facebook, myspace, twitter or linkedIn.

Digsby will keep you updated with your friends new status on facebook, or your naighbor’s mood change on myspace or your replies on twitter, and of course you can update your twitter status from digsby or @ reply to someone, or directly open your friends wall page on facebook.

Oh, besides the fact that I appear online on facebook almost 24/7 (when I am actually only on digsby), Digsby is truly universal, you will create one account on digsby during your first install, then if you travel or change computers, all you have to do is to sign in your digsby account and all the rest of your accounts that’s stored from before will load and log in automaticaly.

There are many other feature that you can find here. Or you can Join Wahol.com for free and learn even more by video and audio.

Digsby developers are always updating the software with new features, I have personally requested to add an RSS reader feature through their feedback requests, I also requested to have it as an Android mobile app so I can use it on my phone, there is also digsby for facebook application that is already published and ready for you to download in your facebook account.
