12 awesome keyboard shortcuts for gmail

You need to activate the shortcut keys in your gmail first. Access you Gmail, click on the Setting icon on the top-right corner, then choose "Genera" tab and turn "Keyboard Shortcuts" on.  Finally, click "Save Changes"

1. "c"

Press "c" to compose a new email.

2. "g" then "a"

To view emails including draft ones, press "g" then "a" ("g"=go, "a"=all mail).

3. "e"

Press "e" if you don't take any actions (e.g. reply) on an email after reading it. The email will be sent back to "All Mail".

4. "r" or "a"

"r": reply, "a": reply all.

5. SHIFT + "u" or SHIFT + "i"

Shift + "u": mark an email as unread VS Shift + "i": mark an email as read.

6. "TAB" then "ENTER"

To send an email after composing.

7. "g" then "c"

To go to your contact list. "g" = go, "c" = contacts.

8. "g" then "i"

Go to inbox ("i": inbox).

9. "k" or "j"

"k": go to newer dialog in inbox, "j": go back to previous dialog in inbox.

10. "n" or "p"

"n" (new): go to newer email in inbox, "p": go back to previous email in inbox.

Some shortcuts are already available and you dont need to turn "Keyboard Shortcuts" on to use. For example, Control (or Command on Mac) + Enter to send mail; Control (or Command on Mac) + Shift + c to add CC; Control (Command on Mac) + Shift + b to add Bcc.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.
