*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

  7. Using inbox by gmail.... I get my mail by category (forums, updates, etc) but my mail is further broken down by time... last week, last month, etc. is there anyway to get rid of the breakdown by time... doesn't add anything for me.

    1. No there is not - definitely use the feedback option in the menu of Inbox to suggest this to the team
