For years, Outlook has been the defacto standard at offices and, as a result, many of us have become comfortable navigating our emails with features like folders, flags and preview panes. At the same time, millions upon millions of users have shifted to GMail for their personal email. This meant learning and using two different email programs simultaneously and a bit of frustration for those who wanted the functionality of Outlook in their GMail. Some of that frustration may have been eased yesterday, when the official GMail blog rolled out a new feature for GMail lovers… the Preview Pane.
Preview Pane, available as an add-on feature from Gmail Labs, should probably be a standard choice for GMail users, but adding it to your account is super easy and JumpstartMyPC has the step-by-step for anyone interested in enabling this new feature.
