Gmail got a lot of awesome new features during its recent redesign, but there’s a big one that’s still missing. Email scheduling has never been an option for those who choose Google as their email provider — at least not without the help of a third-party service.
Email inboxes can be wild, unruly places. Spam filters can help cut down on noise to an extent, but inevitably we all end up sorting through countless messages from people we’ve never heard of, for things we have no interest in.
These days everyone is a writer, whether in emails, texts, status updates, or any of a thousand kinds of digital communications. Technology means clear writing is a more important skill than ever. Luckily, technology can also help make your writing better.
Researchers in Europe have discovered a way to read the contents of encrypted emails sent with iOS and macOS devices. The so-called Efail exploit is significant enough that the Electronic Frontier Foundation calls it an “immediate risk.”

Microsoft is working to bring Cortana to its Outlook app for iOS. The virtual assistant will give users the ability to listen to their emails, which will be particularly useful in situations where you need to be hands-free.
We all know about forwarding email. It’s the electronic equivalent of putting a received letter in a new envelope and sending it on to someone else. But did you know that you can also redirect emails so that it seems like they arrived from the original sender? You could, for instance:
Redirect instructions from your boss to a co-worker.
Pass an email to someone else without getting caught in an inevitable and endless Reply All mess.
Send a customer enquiry to the correct person, with their reply going direct to the customer.
Unless the final recipient is really brain-dead, then this will never work as a scam to trick them into doing all the work your boss assigned to you, but it’s a very practical alternative to just forwarding emails.
