First off, welcome. And thanks for opening a Gmail account! We think Gmail is different. So to help you get started, you may want to:
- Check out the new Gmail Tour in our Getting Started section. It’s good for, well, getting started.
- Visit our Help Center. Here you can browse frequently asked questions, search for answers and learn about some of Gmail’s cool features, like labels, keyboard shortcuts and free POP access.
- Import your contacts to Gmail from Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, Hotmail and other programs. Then email your friends with your brand new Gmail address.
As you’re using Gmail, you might also see some ads or related links. We believe that you shouldn’t have to share your inbox with large, blinking, irrelevant ads. Gmail’s small text ads are matched by computers, and designed to be relevant to the messages you’re viewing. Which means for once, you might even find ads to be interesting and useful.
Users have often told us that the more they use Gmail, the more they discover its added benefits–such as being able to find any message instantly or to manage all your contacts in one place. So go ahead and give it a try. In the meantime, we’ll keep working on making Gmail the best email service around. Thanks for joining us for the ride. We hope you’ll enjoy Google’s approach to email.
