Think about all the parts of your life that happen over email: you stay in touch with friends, deal with bills, discuss work proposals, apply for college, plan a wedding, negotiate a home purchase, forward a funny (to you) joke… the list goes on and on. We spend so much of our time on email! And being smart about your email can help you save time and be more efficient -- whether you're at work, getting ready to go on vacation, or just managing the day to day.

Gmail is a free service developed by Google that's intuitive, efficient, and useful. Developed 15 years ago, Gmail has 1.5 billion users and blocks nearly 10 million spam and malicious emails every minute. Today, we celebrate Gmail’s birthday with a look back at its evolution over the years, and a look forward at new innovations to make it even more helpful.
