Gmail Best Practices
|Getting the most out of Gmail|
Follow these recommended practices to get the best performance from your Gmail account:
To help keep our systems healthy and your account safe, Google limits the amount of bandwidth, storage space, server requests, and number of emails that users can send or receive in their Google Apps account. These limits do not inhibit normal email use, but are designed to help identify any misuse of Gmail.
The following policies have more information on each limit, including best practices to help avoiding reaching these limits:
2 Steps: Set email settings from group, then set up a filter in your Inbox.
Then click something other than Don’t send email updates and click Save.
Choose Filters from the menubar in the middle, then Create a new filter.
Put these addresses in the To: field, then click Continue.
In the next box, choose to either Skip the Inbox entirely or Mark as read so these emails don’t distract you by filling in your inbox.
If you apply a label, you can then click the label, and review these emails at your convenience. Then save the filter.
