The jury's still out on Google's new mobile approach to email, but that hasn't stopped people from going a little batty over getting invited to use it (see also: Gmail, Google Wave). In case you were feeling a little weird about begging Google for an Inbox invite, though, you can now just beg your

A leaked video spotted by Android Police appears to show sweeping changes for Gmail 5.0 on Android, including integration with Yahoo, Microsoft and other email services. We say \"appears,\" because the strangely formatted video came from an anonymous user on a little-known upload site. Still, it loo

You might not have to set reminders to pay your bills on time in the future. After a bit of testing with a limited audience, Google has updated its mobile search app to show both upcoming and past bills it finds in your Gmail. So long as a notice mentions both the due date and the amount you owe,

You haven't had many options for checking Gmail on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus so far. Unless you're happy with Apple's stock email client, you've typically had to use blown-up versions of earlier apps. You won't have to face that dilemma any more, though; Google has released an update to its Gmail a

You might need to change your email password in the very near future. A member at a Russian Bitcoin forum has posted almost 5 million Gmail passwords, around 60 percent of which are reportedly still working. It's not clear how the poster managed to scoop up all this account info, but Google tells

Those of us who've been frustrated that Hangouts in Gmail has been displaying conversations in chronological order rather than who's online are about to get some relief. Rolling out over the next few days, a new tab in the Hangouts window will allow you to toggle your contacts list there, so you c

If you're an iPhone user, you may want to be cautious about opening messages that contain phone numbers in the near future; they may cost you a lot of money. Developer Andrei Neculaesei notes that maliciously coded links in some apps will abuse the \"tel\" web handler (which covers dialing) to autom

Since the beginning of time -- or at least since email was invented -- most email services have required the use of non-accented characters from the Latin alphabet for each individual's address. It's inconvenient for those who don't natively use that alphabet, which means that more than half of th

Google has long used automatic image scanning to fight online child exploitation, but it's now clear that this monitoring applies to email, too. Houston police have arrested a registered sex offender after Google tipped them off to illegal photos of children in his Gmail account. The notice onl

Everyone makes mistakes... just some of them are a little more costly than others. A Goldman Sachs employee made a rather serious error when instead of sending a message to a gs.com email address, it went to a stranger with a Gmail account. That might sound innocent enough, except this email happe

Maybe you've seen Into the Wild, or (gasp) have actually read it. It's the true story of an ordinary person who, one day, decided to abandon society, pack some rice and a rifle into a bag and head off into the wilderness never to return. It's the sort of drastic move you rarely hear about in our m

Google knows many, many things about you, perhaps even that you can be a bit forgetful sometimes. To help you remember your plans, the company has started testing a feature that takes possible events from Gmail or other Google services and turns them into Google Now cards. For instance, if it infe
