Gmail is a very handy email application, full of features. Some of them are not so well known, so check out our selection of Gmail tips.
Gmail is also a central product in the universe of Google products, including Google Workspace (ex G Suite). Having a Gmail address is very useful to manage your Google account. You have to think about securing your account with a strong password (not used elsewhere) to avoid being hacked.
