Umail Tips and Tricks

Username and Password Tips

Professionalise your Emails

  • Create a Gmail signature
    An email signature is text, like your contact information, course and year, that's automattically added at the end of Gmail messages as a footer. Add a Gmail signature to your account using these steps.
  • Schedule emails to send
    Worried you'll forget to send an important email to your lecturer in the morning? Use the email scheduling function to send your email at a later time.
  • Vacation responder
    Let lecturers and classmates know you're not available using Gmail's vacation responder.
  • Formatting, fonts and colours
    You can use formatting options to change your default text style, add bullet points, highlight text and much more.
  • Confidential emails
    Send and open confidential emails in a way that protects sensitive information from unauthorized access using Gmail's confidential mode.

Organise

  • Inbox rules
    You can manage your incoming mail to send email to a label, or archive, delete, star or automatically forward your mail using Gmail's filters.
  • Create labels
    Store your emails using Gmail's labels. Add as many labels as you want to an email. 
  • Undo send
    Unsend messages from a browser or the Gmail app using these steps.
