  • Thanks for sharing this Idea I already using this one to manage my office contacts. As some of my business relations have 5 to 10 mails for each person. So this helps me to take them at one head.

  • Thanks for sharing this, I never knew about it. I will give it go when I get home and see how many duplicates I have. This would surely help in simplifying things in Gmail.

  • I’ve never noticed this feature before. Some of my friends have multiple IDs, now I have combined their accounts into one. Thanks
