Gmail


We all have muttered something along those lines (usually with a $@*! thrown in) while searching for a particular message in our inboxes. Sometimes finding an email you need is like finding the matches. You see that box of matches all the time around the house when you don’t need it, but when the electricity goes out, it’s nowhere to be found. Emails have a way of doing the same.
