Gee whiz, Gmail sure isn’t like most other email services.
It’s easy to forget — since for lots of us at this point, getting around Google’s email environment has basically become second nature. But if you’re just getting started, especially if you’re coming from a more traditional email program like Outlook, getting used to Gmail can be one ginormous adjustment.
And it’s no wonder: Google’s got some seriously unusual ideas about how email should operate. And whether your company just moved you over to a Google Workspace-associated Gmail setup or you opted to go with Gmail for your own individual account, it can be an awful lot to wrap your head around.
