I would recommend the following settings to be default if you want a place to start:
- Keyboard shortcuts On - Keyboard shortcuts making using GMail much more efficient. Another post will be coming in a few days to talk about the benefit and some of the important keys you will want to remember, but I highly recommend turning this on. Once it is on, just type a question-mark to see which keys you can use.
- Always use https - This will help to keep your emails more private and secure.
- Personal Level Indicators: Show Indicators - Helps you to see if an email is sent only to you, you as part of a group, or to a mailing list with your specific email address identified. This is a great way to prioritize your emails.
