Using Gmail Like a Pro

Gmail for Domain Names.
If you have a domain name (yourname.com etc.) Gmail might be your best choice for email management.
It shouldn't matter where you purchased your domain name from, google will take you through the settings to set up your new inbox.

Auto Forwarding and Send as other Names.

Once you've set up your new email address inbox, mail@yourname.com , you can tell it to forward all incoming mails to your primary email, or any address. So you won't have to log in there at all.

You can also send mail as yourname.com from any of your gmail accounts, with a quick setup.
This way you can check all your emails and send replies using any of your adresses, all from one inbox.

Organizing your inbox like a Pro

If you get too many emails from different sites and services you might want to set up some filters and folders (labels).
Labels show up on the left side column and you can move emails into them for organization.
But the real power comes from combining them with filters that automatically place new mails in corresponding labels.
