Move to the next unread email with auto-advance

In order to enable it simply tap the menu in the left corner, go to Settings > General settings > Auto-advance. There you should be able to choose between Newer, Older or Conversation list.
Filter your emails
Sorting your emails can be very easy if you know how. For example, you can use the Filter function to archive all emails that come with attachments, or tag emails from a certain person in a certain way. There are plenty of options, all you need to do is go to gmail.com, click the down arrow in the search bar and select how you want to filter your mail.
Set automatic responses
If you need a vacation where you just unplug from everything, you won’t want to check your mail. In order to inform the ones that are trying to get in touch with you, simply set an auto-message. To do that go to Settings, select your account, and go to Vacation responder.
