Gmail Inbox Changing

We get a lot of different types of email: messages from friends, social notifications, deals and offers, confirmations and receipts, and more. All of these emails can compete for our attention and make it harder to focus on the things we need to get done. Sometimes it feels like our inboxes are controlling us, rather than the other way around.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Today, Gmail is getting a brand new inbox on desktop and mobile that puts you back in control using simple, easy organization.

On the desktop, the new inbox groups your mail into categories which appear as different tabs. You simply choose which categories you want and voilà! Your inbox is organized in a way that lets you see what’s new at a glance and decide which emails you want to read when.

Seems to some of us old folks that email is NOW trying to be Outlook Express. One of the things that I miss most, losing that was sad.

I still have Windows mail (close to OE) on my Vista Desktop. And I am holding on with all my might to keep it.

I use my ISP mail for friends and family.

Hotmail for newsletters mostly, Gmail for things that I want to keep track of like if I buy a tv or dishwasher I have them send that stuff there. 

And Yahoo mail I have for my graphics mostly. But someone gets wind of my email and so I get personal email in all of them now. 

Like my email.
