Gmail Has Themes

Posted by ClifNotes, Nov 2008, permalink Email Tips Web Service


I was recently blind-sided by a new addition to the already awesome Gmail service. If you haven't gotten a free Gmail account for all the other reasons ...


· great spam filters

· free POP3 and IMAP access

· built in access to Google Calendar

· nearly unlimited mail space

· built in voice and video chat

· as many accounts as you need

· no flashy ad banners

· fast email search


... now you have one more reason.

Go to Gmail.com to find out more.


Take a look at the Beach theme I've tricked out my inbox with.


Quote from the website

Themes allow you to customize the look and feel of your Gmail account. To choose a theme, click a thumbnail on the Themes tab of your Settings page.


In some cases, you can also customize by location. Some themes change during the day, and we use the location information you provide to correctly time these changes with your local sunrise, sunset, and/or weather. If you select one of these themes, you'll see a Country/Region drop-down menu appear. Select the country you want, and then enter a city in the field provided. If you don't enter a city, or enter an invalid one, we'll set your location to the capital city of the country you selected. When you're done, click Save.
