Make a wish! We want your suggestions.
To celebrate our first 100+ posts, we share five favorites – and ask for your suggestions.
Even though it seems like just yesterday, we launched the mail.com blog one year ago – April 13, 2021. We started with some pointers on how to use various features in your mail.com email and went on to cover fun and important topics ranging from spam protection to keeping your inbox clean. With at least two articles posted every week, this has added up to a grand total of 110 articles for you – fueled by at least that many cups of coffee for us!

Top posts from our first year

Here are five of our top posts from the first year of our blog that you won’t want to have missed:

1. What are cc and bcc in emails?

Cc and bcc can both be used to send copies of an email to additional recipients. But have you ever wondered what they stand for? Or when you should use bcc? In one of our first blog posts, we explained how to use cc and bcc in mail.com and Outlook, and where the abbreviations come from (spoiler: typewriters!).

2. How to delete messages efficiently

Even if you have been using mail.com for a long time, our email life hacks show you tricks to use in your mail.com account. The shortcuts in this post help you save time and trouble by deleting emails in bulk, using rules to send messages to your Trash, and automatically deleting mail in folders.

3. Artificial intelligence and email writing

“Artificial intelligence” might make you think of robots taking over the earth, not writing emails. But AI is already improving email marketing, and could help you write better email as well. In one of our technology deep dives, we show you what the future might bring – and tools you can already use today.

4. But it’s not spam!

Tired of missing emails because they land in your spam folder? Frustrated because recipients don’t receive your club newsletter when it gets blocked as spam? This blog post explains why outgoing and incoming emails might be marked as spam and what you can do about it.

5. What is pharming?

Online scams can take many forms, but the aim is often the same: harvesting personal data and passwords to commit identity theft. And pharming is no different. Find out how you can protect yourself.
