A few weeks back I wrote a post touting the benefits of Gmail (or similar email services) vs. dinosaurs like AOL.  So imagine my excitement when Fiona from CollegeDegrees.com sent along a link to the 57 Habits of Highly Effective Gmail Users.  It may seem like a lot to go through almost 60 tips, but they’re broken down into Basics (like how to import contacts from another email system), Sending and Receiving (like how to set a signature or how to import archived email messages), and Organization.  I realize this won’t really affect those of us at publishing houses and book publicity firms, but freelancers and authors, take note!
