Gmail Inbox changes

Missing any messages? If you use Gmail you might have noticed the new tabs in the Gmail Inbox. The way Gmail now sorts mail, some messages are routed into one of the tabs (Social, Promotions, Updates, etc.) and won’t appear in your unread message count. If you are missing out on messages and want to […]
