Ok, having just found I’d replied to myself, instead of the intended recipient after forwarding an email from my Gmail account I’m finally moved to say: for heavens sake! why doesn’t Gmail allow me to redirect messages, instead of just forwarding them? I routinely need to send messages on for Communitynet Aotearoa, and end up adding a line at the start of the forwarded message with the reply to address. If Gmail would offer redirect, such foolishness wouldn’t be necessary.
Then there’s one more area which is hugely lacking: stationery. Eudora’s my primary email software. I have all kinds of stationery messages set up that I can use for new messages, replies or whatever. Gmail stationery: none.
Again, for Communitynet Aotearoa, I have half a dozen standard emails I need to use every time I do that work. It’s a major hassle creating the standard replies without stationery. I have to rely on a multi-clipboard utility, or software such as TextExpander (if I’m using the Mac for email), or even just a text file with copy and paste. Boring!
Come on Gmail — you’re a very useful tool, but you need to start adding in these features that are indispensible to workers.
