*About Scott*:



  1. I am looking forward to reading, well, everything I possibly can that you have to say. New is a very kind word, but the more I 'move around' G+ the most amazing people are ready to help. Thank you!

  2. Jake, thanks so much. Make sure you follow me on Twitter and circle me on Google + to get this information quicker as I update hem.

  3. Hi,

    I cannot see my inbox or read my email ... what to do? its a gmail account

  4. Farrah - post in the Google Plus Help Community and you will receive excellent support.!categories/gmail

  5. Scott,

    Can I have your permission to print these pages for reference?

    Any idea how to print all, or do I have to print each topic individually?

  6. I apologize if I've missed a tip on this, but someone is using a program that tries to log into my gmail account, about every ten or fifteen minutes. I use the two-step verification, but I'm worried that sooner or later it will be compromised somehow. Plus I keep getting notifications on my phone, 24/7, that someone has "sign-in failed." Other than deleting my email account, is there anything else you suggest? If I do delete my account, will I have problems using other Google functions?

    1. No tips about that, I am unaware of that kind of program. Definitely post int he Gmail Product Forum and someone will be able to try and help you!forum/gmail
