If you need reminding to do something, you have a notepad at your disposal right from your inbox. Simply head to the "Gmail" pull-down list, and select "Tasks." Up in the bottom-right hand corner, a small pad appears where you can jot own notes and even email them to others.
In Gmail, you can switch between your accounts easily by clicking on your profile picture icon in the top-right corner of the screen. To set it up, select "Add account." Once you're set up, you can just click that account and jump to and from your various Gmail addresses.
If you sent an email before it was finished, or accidentally clicked the send button, or forget to attach that document, you can 'undo' it before it's too late. Gmail gives you a few seconds to cancel sending it. Simply click the "Undo" link on the yellow bar and it will stop sending the message. But be quick, as you only have a few seconds.
You can filter various emails, depending on where they're from or who they are addressed to. You can even create multiple "+name" addresses so that you can filter and label emails to become a real Gmail power user. Head to the search bar in Gmail, and from there you can search for various emails and create filters that label various emails with certain tags when they come in for easy reading later on.
Gmail has a 25MB attachment limit, which makes sending large files difficult. Instead of hitting the attachment button in the email compose window, click the triangle-shaped Google Drive button. From there you can insert files up to 10GB in size. Just make sure you're plugged into a fast internet connection.
