Using A Gmail Account to Handle Multiple Email Accounts 2016 Edition

We introduced information which was about using Single Gmail to Receive / Send emails for multiple email account before, but it is 2016 now, Google has done some modifications on this feature of Gmail, and we realized it is not that easy which we thought. Let’s record this process today.

Hotmail upgraded to Outlook.com formally ?

Couple of weeks ago we got to know Microsoft was trying to change current Hotmail to new style email system with more “Cloud” features, and soon we saw the hotmail UI had already changed to a new Outlook.com face.

Today, when we access to your Hotmail and Live account, we saw the formal upgraded message first:

 

Your Hotmail has been upgraded to Outlook.com

Don’t worry. Your email address, password, emails, contacts, and files remain the same—with a few added advantages:

Outlook is modern—you get a fresh, clean design that’s intuitive to use.

Outlook is connected—your conversations come to life with your friends’ photos, Tweets, and recent Facebook updates.

Outlook is productive—you get free Word, Excel, and PowerPoint web apps built in with 7 GB of free cloud storage.

Outlook is private—you’re in control of your data, and your personal conversations aren’t used for ads.

And, of course, Outlook gives you virtually unlimited storage and less spam—and works on your PC, Mac, phone, and tablet.

 

So it means the Hotmail and Live email system have already been changed to Outlook.com formally ?

Email Maximum Attachment Size

Do you know how big size of files can be attached in your email ?

The email service providers always change their email attachment size limitation.

We collect the information just based on the current rules from the popular email services.

 

Note:

Before you get to know the attachment size, you have to know one point: even your email can send or receive specified size file, but your friend’s email can not receive or send the same or bigger size of attachment, you still can not send bigger file to him/her.

 

1: Gmail

gmail_logo

Send and receive messages up to 25 megabytes (MB) in size.

The answer is from Gmail official site

 

2: Hotmail:

hotmail_logo.jpg

Attachment size up to 25 MB

 

3: Yahoo! Mail:

yahooemail

Attachment size up to 25 MB.

The answer is from Yahoo official site India

 

Actually, We should not compare the email attachment size, it is cloud times, we should compare the cloud service, for example, how big online size for app space ? We will give detail information in another article.

Also, maybe you can read here: Microsoft provids a compare page for Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo mail.

Shorten the long link

You might have a long website URL to want to share with your friend, the popular sharing methods are email, IM, and also the most popular tools Twitter, Facebook, and you might use your cell phone.

For example, we have this URL which it is a real link for ebay item list:

http://photography.shop.ebay.com/Digital-Cameras-/31388/i.html?LH_ItemCondition=1000&LH_TopRatedSellers=1&LH_FS=1&LH_Price=20..%40c&_nkw=Canon+%28SX230+HS%2C+500+HS%2C+300+HS%2C+100+HS%2C+A800%2C+A1200%2C+A2200%2C+A3300+IS%29&_trkparms=65%253A15%257C66%253A2%257C39%253A1&rt=nc&_dmpt=Digital_Cameras&_mPrRngCbx=1&_sticky=1&_trksid=p5197.m621&_sop=12&_sc=1%26clkid%3D100673974772410415&_qi=RTM866480

So, you have a trouble now: your URL link is too long for sharing: The long link always get broken when you post in your email or IM, and also we don’t think you can post it on Twitter directly since Twitter only allow 140 characters length. So Is it possible to be shorter ?

Yes, there are many Shorten link services, and they are free. Here we introduce several popular services:

1: TinyURL:

TinyURL is the one of earlier shorten link services providers. Before all Twitter’s shorter links used TinyURL service.

The first function which TinyURL is shorten the long link, for example, the link above can be converted to this one:

http://tinyurl.com/3u2dld4

shortURL00

They also provides “Add TinyURL to your browser’s toolbar”, so that “you’ll be able to make a TinyURL at the click of a button. By clicking on the toolbar button, a TinyURL will be created for the page you are currently at.

 

2: Bit.ly:

Bit.ly provide the similar shorten link service with TinyURL, Now they are providing shorten service for Twitter, Twitter changed the service from TinyURL to Bit.ly;

We try the same long URL and got the following shorter URL:

http://bit.ly/loLXwA

shortURL01

Bit.ly has beyond TinyURL and now it is the largest shorten link service provider, They provides more features and products , and also they provides API, which is a project of Google Code. They are more flexible and stronger than TinyURL

shortURL02 

3: Goo.gl:

Goo.gl is Google’s shorten service, function is the same as above 2, but Bit.ly provides much more features.

Google URL Shortener at goo.gl is used by Google products to create short URLs that can be easily shared, tweeted, or emailed to friends.

googleShrt

By the way, a Chinese Twitter-like site. which belongs Sina China, named Weibo.com, they own the shortest domain name in the world: T.CN, and also they are using t.cn for their own shorten link service. but they are not a Shorten service provider.
