Gmail Reply to All

Does anyone know of an extension for Chrome that will change the default behaviour of Gmail or will add a new button to Gmail in Chrome for Reply to All without having to use the Reply drop-down? I need to Reply to All almost always; reply to only the sender almost never. [more inside]

Why is Gmail is routing some of my mail away from my inbox?

Some of my mail is not ending up in my Inbox, and instead is only found in "All Mail". This includes emails from my wife, which is slightly problematic! I don't have any filters directing mail to other locations. The problem is occurring within the Gmail web app, and subsequently on my other devices too (Mail in OS X, Gmail app on iOS). Searching for a solution to the problem only results in specific client issues, or problems with Filtering. Can you help troubleshoot?

Service like Backupify that doesn't require Google Apps?

I am finally going to stop using a paper calendar and start using my laptop/iPhone/iPad instead. However, having used ol' reliable paper for so many years, I'm a bit paranoid about using Google calendar (or an app) and then losing all my data somehow... Is there an iPhone/iPad calendar app that would make me feel more "secure," or is there a service like Backupify that doesn't require a Google Apps account? I'd love to back up my Gmail too, if possible. (Am I just worrying too much? Is using iCloud enough? I am clearly clueless.)

My Gmail acct. hijacked to send spam

Twice recently my Gmail acct. has been hijacked by someone who is sending spam emails to some, but not contacts --seems to be only recently emailed (by me) people. The spam is an ad, as seen on Fox News for Raspberry drops weight loss aid. How do the spammers access my Gmail account? Could it be through my brand new Android cell phone? I am unaware of any other problems on my (Macbook) home computer. I have a secure WiFi router at home. No evidence malware or virus. I've changed my Gmail password, FWIW. Any suggestions on how/where to find a way from this happening again?

Gmail security settings???

Help me stay incognito in Gmail

In Gmail, is there a way to chat from an alternate email? They are both Gmail accounts. One is my main, which the chat defaults to.

"Suspicious sign in prevented" in gmail account from odd IP address

A couple weeks ago I got an email from google to my gmail account that there was a "Suspicious sign in prevented". I changed my pw and all that, and there've been no more attempts and I'm not overly concerned anymore. However, I am pretty curious. The IP address google reported isn't one that pulls up any info when I look it up, and I'm just wondering if anyone can shed any light on what this might signify and a potential origin -- private proxy of some sort? The IPv4 is 255.0.15.210. IPv6 2600:1003:b011:e219::103 . [more inside]

How to keep google from associating my work account with stupid youtube videos?

I use multiple google accounts, and their multiple sign-in feature is generally very helpful to me. I have a work google domain account, managed by my company, and a personal google account. Lately, when I have gone to youtube or google voice, it often associates to my work account, which I do not want. I'd prefer that my work account is only associated with gmail. Is this possible?

What a drag.

It's possible to drag a message to a label in GMail by grabbing it from the leftmost edge. However, on a hi-res monitor, this can be quite difficult. Is there a hack or greasemonkey script that allows you to drag the message by clicking and dragging anywhere in the Subject rather than just the left edge?

Email address ideas for very common name

I have an absurdly common name and literally every combination of myfirst, last and middle initial are taken. I want to avoid using numbers and try to have a somewhat professional email address. Not for job hunting but in general. Preference is to use Gmail. Also I cant buy my own domain because I don't have a credit card and even if I did, my name is taken in .com and a few others I believe. I was thinking about using a suffix... so firstname.lastname.___@gmail.com Anyone have ideas to fill in the blanks? Thanks!

HELP: google contacts seems to be psychotic!

Google contacts seems to be getting increasingly problematic for me. In some contact records, I have over a dozen random email addresses assigned to a contact (that have no relation at all). In others, the contact email is legitimate, but is now named after some individual I have never ever had any form of contact with, apparently through some google+ functionality (I have not signed up for google+). Aside from ditching this increasingly crappy platform, any advice how it make this work? I cant see hand fixing thousands of contacts....
