After three great years my Google Calendar has simply stopped sending me email notifications. I have tried the help page here
and many unhelpful forum posts here
. This seems to be a prevalent problem. I wish I could switch to something else but Gmail is what I use heart and soul for work. Any others solved this problem? I am all ears. Thanks for your time.

Is there any way to forward a bunch of emails in just one email in Gmail? I have to forward about 20 emails to a fact-checker and would rather send it as one file, rather than 20.

How does the SMS feature in Gmail work? I know there's some kind of base of phone numbers used for it, but I assume those numbers send out thousands of texts per day; how does a reply end up at my account, instead of someone else's? If someone replies to one of my SMS messages sent from Gmail in a month, will the reply still be connected to me?

Gmail question: Is there a way to set up a script to auto-respond to an email with included attachments? I asked a guy if I could send him my resumé and cover letter so he can circulate to relevant people at a staff meeting tomorrow, but he hasn't responded and I cannot be sure I will be awake to get his response before the meeting. It seems that it would be a faux pas to send them blindly after asking for his go-ahead. If this is possible, is there a way to do it only if a specific person emails you, or will it have to be an automatic response to anyone who emails me during this period?

Google seems to have changed their 'reply to all' feature recently for lists with a 'reply-to' email address specified. Now when you click 'reply all' it sends an email to the person who sent the mail as well as to the list.
I'm on a list where like 90% of the people use gmail and it's causing a problem, because some people habitually click 'reply-all' and some people usually click just 'reply'. What happens is, I'll click 'reply all' to an email, and some other person will click only 'reply' to mine and the reply will go back to me personally, instead of the list.
Is there a way to revert this behavior?

Multiple domains- I know how to forward them.
I could start a Google account for each.
But I'd really like to get the email to forward instead? I want it to be that you send an email to (anything) firstname.lastname@example.org and it ends up going to my main domain/email account.

How do I get strangers off my Google chat panel? It seems that everybody I've ever emailed with a gmail address is there. I do not necessarily have ongoing business with them. I don't want to know when they're online, nor do I want them to know when I'm online. I know I can change my status, but that's not what I'm looking for. Help.

I receive a couple of non-Gmail-filtered spam emails a day, from a friend's compromised machine/account. I can easily deal with them / filter them / discard them.
Besides hitting "Report Spam" I'm just wondering if there is a better place to report these consistent messages. I've been getting them for 6 months or so, doesn't seem the Big G's learning algorithm is ever gonna catch on...

I'm encountering the same problem with Gmail and Firefox (on Mac) described in this question
, but I'm too computer illiterate to understand the fixes that the "best answer" refers me to- I can't find "about:config" to make sure dom.storage.enabled is TRUE; "About Firefox" just gets me the little box with the icon and the version number. Can someone explain to me how to implement in the fix in simpler language with more basic step-by-step instructions? [more inside]

Gmail acting funny in Firefox: I have 2 gmail tabs open. One is for my personal account, the other is through my employer (the college uses google to manage their webmail service). If I try to "Compose Mail" or "Reply" or anything that would open up a new email, on either account, the top of the page goes to "Loading" but nothing ever happens. In addition, the Gmail Chat tab is missing. Only not working on my home computer; both were working fine on my office computer when I went in to check 30 min ago. [more inside]
