- Enabling the HTTPS setting
Plain easy text - everyone should enable this option. Enable this option will encrypt (make third party unable to read your email) your email before it is sent to Google's server.
To enable this,
- Go to Setting in Gmail
- Set "Browser connection" to "Always use https"
- Click "Save Changes"
- Reload your Gmail
- Sign out your Gmail account remotely
If you look at the bottom of your Gmail page, you will see a sentence like this.

- Gmail video Chat
Gmail introduced Gmail video Chat last week. You just need to go to http://gmail.com/videochat, download a plug-in and restart your browser.
Once you install the plugin, to start a video chat, just click on the "Video & more" menu at the bottom of your Gmail chat window, and choose "Start video chat."Of course, you will need a mic., speaker and a webcam to make video chat.
See the following video for more information.
