Did you know that you get two google email addresses. The one everyone knows is …@gmail.com. But, you automatically get another one which is …@googlemail.com So the logical question is why would you need two google email addesses? Answer: to cut down on Spam and filter important emails.
The author of Digital Inspiration suggests giving the googlemail.com address to your important contacts and setting up a google email filter to store those emails into s special folder. Makes sense.
A friend in Portland posted this great find in the Digital Inspiration Blog Basically it’s a slam dunk method of finding any email with an attachment over a certain number of bytes. I keep all my gmail going back to 2006. All you have to do is enter a file size number in bytes. For example this search size:10485760 returned all emails with attachments greater than 10 mb. Chevere!
