Gmail

  1. How to you mass delete in Gmail, one page at a time or more?
    There are numerous ways to mass delete in Gmail.

    • Use the search box to search for emails from a sender, a specific subject, includes the words, doesn’t have the words, or a date range.  Once you have the list of emails, select all of the emails by clicking “select” the left most box above the list of emails.  The word “select” appears when you mouse over the box.  When you select all, it provides the options to include “all messages” that meet your criteria rather than just the emails listed on that page.
    • Mouse over the sender’s name on a message.  A box pops up offering to save the contact or search emails from that contact.  When you search emails from that contact, you get a list similar to the list of emails described above.  You can delete the same way.
    • You can delete all of the emails in a specific label (folder). Click on the label to open access to all of the messages with that label. Select all and delete.
    • Try the Email Game. It is a free, fun way to get rid of A LOT of emails buried deep in your INBOX quickly.
  2. I have a personal email, a work email and now Gmail address.  How do I work all these into these Google tools or do I only use Gmail?
    You can receive emails from up to 5 email accounts using Gmail.  Gmail offers a setting to reply from the address to which messages are sent.  If you receive emails at 3 different email addresses, you can set Gmail to reply to messages from the email address which it was received.  Use the Email Fetcher tool to pull the different email addresses in and configure how to treat emails when they are received.

PASSWORD MANAGERS

  1. How long/what is the process for getting all account/password info into PW managers?This likely depends on the number of passwords you have. It might be helpful to enter your data as the need arise, i.e., when you use a specific application. Some of the required information may differ slightly from app to app, but you’ll likely need to enter your user name, password, and site URL. When you use a web browser extension, most will ask you if you want the PW manager to save the user name and PW of the site you are using.
