I’ve been using Inbox by Gmail as my default web-based email to manage emails powered by Gmail. The “Snooze” and “Pin” are just helpful to keep me organised with my emails. Everything works, but there is a small things that — in my opinion — little bit inconvinient: dealing with Spam. Gmail’s spam filter is […]
There is a fact that Yahoo! Mail is probably one of my first email service providers. Not sure about the exact date I created my account, but I think it was in 2000’s. It was the time when Yahoo! was so popular, had lots of services, and interesting products. Probably, it was also because that […]
I decided not to use it. I’m using about.me service to create my personal splash page. You can see mine at about.me/thomasarie. It looks good, and very useful to display multiple online profiles like Twitter, Facebook, or even Instagram. Everything works great. Few days ago, about.me users received an email informing about an offer to […]
I don’t know when Flickr rolled out this changes, but I see now that notification email subject about new photos from my Flickr contact is more useful now. Previously, when my contacts uploaded photos to their Flickr photostream, I get notification with subject like this: [Flickr] New items from friends. Now email subject is something […]

The difference is that after the photo uploaded, it will send a notification to Twitter, send an update status. If you’re familiar with Flickr’s Upload by Email, it should not be difficult at all.

For the email service, I use Gmail and Yahoo! Mail. I almost never got any problem with them. Because they did great job filtering the email spams, I almost never checked my email spam folder. If they’re spams, why bother checking the spam folder? But, I sometime check the spam/junk folder. Reading the email subjects […]
I think I forgot when I joined (got invitation) to try Topify and started using it. Until now, Topify is really useful. It’s a timesaver!

I am not sure whether it’s useful or not, but there is free email service where you can have a very long (again, VERY long) email address. It’s under abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijk.com domain name.
