    In a bid to lash out at google.com microsoft has started a campaign name "Have you been Scroogled?"

    It basically mentions what google does with your emails, reads and picks up keywords and displays ads accordingly.

    And their USP is that outlook.com does nothing of that sort, so give outlook a try.

    Google has responded back by stating that no human reads the emails, they are all analyzed by software etc.

    Check it out at

    Have you been Scroogled? Try Outlook.com for email that prioritizes your privacy.

    I am glad I am still with Yahoo mail :p

    gmail is fast and lean.
    It goes back to very basics of mailing.
    you must use it for a week atleast to fully understand how awesome it is.
    Though I wont deny that they wont peep, but hey microsoft would peek in their cloud drives and even skype, so no one is clean.

    well here goes:-
    1) check this link out, a lot of the feature have already been explain here:-
    16 Gmail Features You Should be Using - AuthorityLabs
    Top 10 Things You Forgot Gmail Can Do

    2) Here is one key feature which makes gmail awesome: Labels
    In gmail you don't have folder instead you have labels. the advantage of using labels is that unlike folder where you can put a mail in a folder & can't put it in two folder at same time, labels let you label/tag a mail with labels. eg: you got 2 folders named "friends" & "work". now you get a mail from a friend of yours related to your work. now you will get a delima in which folder to put the mail in. In gmail you just have to tag the mail with both label so when you click on any of the labels you get to see that mail.

    3)Now here is another key feature i really like of gmail is the e-mail address which helps me control spam mails:-
