This tool works with—and inside—Gmail and Outlook, connects with Salesforce, and has a ton of other features to help make your follow-up emails smarter and more effective. In addition to at-a-glance reporting, you also get desktop alerts when an email is engaged with, so you know right when it happens.
Imagine someone you talked to months ago just opened your email again and clicked on a link about your product or service. Now, months later, you can send them a follow-up email about that specific product or service at just the right moment. The results could be incredible! That's where Yesware can be helpful and powerful, and lead to some extreme ROI.
3. Reply Now
Do you aim to answer your emails in a specific timeframe, or simply want to know if a message has been in your inbox a little too long? If so, the Reply Now extension, available on Chrome or Firefox, can help: It converts the standard Google inbox timestamp from a date or time to a timestamp that shows how long each email has been there.
This helps more critical emails, or those that you can archive, stand out.
4. Gmail’s Archive and Undo Settings
These aren't additional tools, but two general Gmail settings that will make your life easier. The Send and Archive setting gives you two Send buttons: One lets you send an email reply and leave the original email in your inbox, the other lets you send an email reply and archive the original email. This saves you a step if you normally archive certain emails after you reply.
The Undo Send setting lets you cancel sending an email if you made a mistake. You can set the cancellation period for up to 30 seconds. After you send an email, you will see a message at the top of your screen that gives you the option to click a hyperlinked “Undo.”

With the Undo Send option enabled, you can unsend an email. Your recipient will never know.
