If you need more storage for your Google account, such as archiving your emails, try "Google One" for peace of mind. It's a subscription plan with more benefits than Google Drive. The storage includes Drive, Gmail, and uncompressed images in Photos. Plus, it backs up important data from your Android Phone. You can share the plan with up to five family members, while also being able to hide personal files from them.
David wants to be able to archive all his emails beyond Google's 15GB allotment. Leo says that Google's One Drive is the best for archiving. Are there alternatives to Gmail? Leo likes Fast Mail. Proton Mail. Mail.Org. Those three aren't free though.
Mikah is going to set up his own domain using Hover. But how does he create an email? Leo says to start with the custom domain. Then he can use Gmail to forward the email to it. Or Spectrum email, or even a paid service like Fast Mail. It doesn't really matter. Then put that into a domain record and it'll get passed on.
Clean up or edit the accounts on your iPhone (iOS 13) by looking under Settings > Passwords & Accounts. This allows you to see what accounts reside on your iPhone, such as iCloud and Gmail. You can add new ones or delete accounts that you don't need anymore. If you have a malfunctioning auto-login process, such as one your workplace set up for you, you may want to delete the account and re-add it after consulting your IT coworkers. Random pop-up error messages can get quite annoying, after all.
Ed has over 500 emails in Gmail and he can't find them. They just aren't there, but Gmail says they are there. Leo says that the default of Gmail is to archive, not delete. If you click on the MORE button on the left, you'll find a folder called ALL MAIL. Every email should appear there. If you don't see them there, they are gone. Also, check the archive.
Jason would like to move his email away from GoDaddy, but he doesn't want to use Gmail. Any options? Leo says the nice thing about having his own domain, is that he can move it anywhere, and even to another registrar. Jason may need to jump through a few hoops, but it can be done. He can also go into the domain record and forward the email to another host. It's under the MX record. Leo recommends using a paid one, because it will not only give support, but they won't close the account out of anywhere. Should he run his own server? Leo says no. Don't do that. Its too much work.
Tom moved to another state and his Gmail account has been locked out. How can he get back control of it? Google says he has to go back to the old location to recover it. This is why you use an alternate address for recovery. But if that doesn't work, you may be out of luck since there's no support. Leo says before anything happens, to do the security checkup. Turn on 2-factor authentication, and set up a secondary email that isn't Gmail for recovering it. Also, periodically, back up your email through Google Takeout.
Karen is still having issues with Microsoft Outlook 365. She wants to know what her alternatives to Outlook are? Leo suggests going to http://outlook.live.com. There's a good chance you can log in where your contacts and data will already be there. You can also export all your contacts there and then use an alternative like Google Contacts.
Dan upgraded to OS X Catalina last week, and he's starting to get a warning that Google will be able to read, delete and compose email in his account. Leo says that isn't from Google. He suspects that Dan may have an extension installed in Safari that's causing that, or that it could be a standard European GDPR warning message. But even if he approves it, he can revoke the permissions in settings. But first, look at extensions. Safari-Preferences-Extensions.
Richard wants to know why when he prints his Gmail, he doesn't get all of it. Leo suggests using Gmail's print command within the interface, not your browser print from the pull-down menu. Gmail will reformat it for your printer, and then print it without truncating it.
