      1. Hi Google Educasters!

I am a tech integrator helping our district roll out Gmail to our staff this year.  One of my secretaries has a request that I cannot find the answer to:

"Is it possible to distinguish between already read and not read emails in a bolder color.  The light gray vs. white just blends all together when you have large amounts of email to search through."

Sean - I think the best way to do it is from inbox go to the Gear ⇒ Settings⇒Themes (last tab) ⇒choose high contrast (last one on the top row)

Fred - I'd second Sean's but add to take a look at Cog/Gear ⇒ Settings ⇒ Inbox

There you can choose use Priority inbox or keep all unread messages first. As messages are read they drop down to an unread level.

  • Shoutouts and Feedback- always a good idea to let the audience know about sessions, workshops, keynotes- and events happening in International Education.

    • Twitter search for people who have mentioned listening or watching

    • Google Summits coming up soon (to a town near you apparently!… )
