On October 16th, Brown email accounts will be transitioned to the New Gmail. Are you ready?
About the New Gmail
The New Gmail has several new features as well as a cleaner design. If you have a personal Gmail account, you might be using it already. Starting on September 18th, Brown accounts have been automatically converted to the New Gmail on a rolling basis, with the ability to opt out until October 16th.
What are the advantages? Besides the clean look, you’ll get some exciting new features, including the ability to snooze emails, reminders to follow up on emails, suggested Smart Replies to help you respond more quickly, and easier offline use. Certain features available in gmail.com accounts are not yet available for domains like ours, such as confidential mode. You can find more details at the following links.
