How can I set the (tel:)phone handler in Gmail?

Gmail is smart enough to turn telephone numbers into links (most of the time) and so they make them available to click on:

enter image description here

They are a standard telephone link in the format of:

<a href="tel:323-601-1200">323-601-1200</a> 

While browsing the web I have a handler set for the tel: protocol and it works fine, but inside Gmail it wants to use the builtin dialer:

How can I keep Gmail from using the dialer for tel: links in email messages?

Multiple inboxes in Gmail without default inbox

I have two email addresses, and

I have set up Gmail’s Multiple Inboxes, with the following criteria:

University --> label:(university inbox) gmail --> label:(inbox -university) 

This gives me two complementary sections, where archiving will also remove the email from my inbox page (which is what I’d like).

However, I still have a third section in my inbox, which contains both University and Gmail. Is there a way to remove this section?

Need All Emails Forwaded to Gmail from Inmotion to Start New Conversations

When guests complete a contact form on our website, they send to our at our hosting company Inmotion. These are DIVI contact forms on WordPress. Problem is, when they are then forwarded to our work Gmail account where staff can reply to them, they all come through as the same conversation in Gmail, making it a pain in the arse for us to keep splitting. It can get confusing, and it’s a needless waste of time.

Gmail I believe groups emails into conversations if the email subjects are the same. In this case, the email subject is always the same, it’s the static title of the DIVI contact form. Gmail filters can help me keep messages out of the spam folder, but how can I filter all the emails we get forwarded from our website email address, into new conversations / threads on Gmail?

I don’t want to use a contact plugin like Contact Form 7, or WPForms, as they don’t integrate we’ll with another plugin I’m using with the DIVI contact forms called DIVI overlays.

Fingers crossed.

Why does Chrome randomly open my Gmail on a new tab?

I have my Chrome set up to open on the New Tab page but whenever I open Chrome it also opens my Gmail on another tab. It also randomly opens it whenever I’m on.

It doesn’t do it when it’s closed, so that’s good but yeah. It’s kind of annoying.

I know that I’m signed in and connected to Google with my account. Does it have anything to do with syncing? If so, will turning off the sync stop it from opening my Gmail?

Gmail: Inbox behavior changed, would like to see unread inbox emails only (“label: inbox, label: unread”)

Up until two days ago, my “Inbox” in Gmail has only shown unread emails at the top, with the read ones being shown somewhere near the bottom.

For some reason this has changed. While my “Inbox” tab still shows “32” next to it, on the right hand side I can now see all emails, including unread ones. But I’d like for my inbox to only show those 32 unread ones:

enter image description here

Googling for this has led me to the following URL: They suggest the following filter:

label: inbox, label: unread

This shows exactly what I want, but I’d like for this to be the default view, and not have to apply a filter each time.

Any idea how I can switch back to the old view’

Configure Postfix mailserver to send emails to gmail

I am running a postfix mailserver on an apache webserver on Ubuntu 18.04.


I am able to send emails to my work email-address, but I am unable to send it to my Gmail account. They do not even appear in the Spam folder.

I would like to send emails to my gmail account, from this postfix mail server.


Postfix is configured to use SMTP Authentication. I have used the below commands to configure it:

sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_sasl_local_domain =' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous' sudo postconf -e 'broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_recipient_restrictions =  permit_sasl_authenticated,permit_mynetworks,reject_unauth_destination' sudo postconf -e 'inet_interfaces = all' sudo postconf -e 'smtp_tls_security_level = may' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_security_level = may' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_auth_only = no' sudo postconf -e 'smtp_tls_note_starttls_offer = yes' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/mailserver.key' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/mailserver.crt' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_CAfile = /etc/postfix/ssl/cacert.pem' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_loglevel = 1' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_received_header = yes' sudo postconf -e 'smtpd_tls_session_cache_timeout = 3600s' sudo postconf -e 'tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom' sudo postconf -e 'myhostname =' 

In the file /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf I have added the below lines

pwcheck_method: saslauthd mech_list: plain login 

SASL installation and configuration:

sudo apt-get install libsasl2-2 sasl2-bin libsasl2-modules

Then edit /etc/default/saslauthd

START=yes PWDIR="/var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd" PARAMS="-m $  {PWDIR}" PIDFILE="$  {PWDIR}/" OPTIONS="-c -m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd" 

Update the dpkg state:

sudo dpkg-statoverride --force --update --add root sasl 755 /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd 

Create a symlink for the config file:

sudo ln -s /etc/default/saslauthd /etc/saslauthd 

Certificate creation:

I have tried with self signed certificates, created by openSSL:

sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout mailserver.key -out mailserver.crt -nodes -days 365  sudo openssl req -new -x509 -extensions v3_ca -keyout cakey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 365 

I also have tried with my trusted SSL certificate, that I also use for port 443 of my website. For that I had to concatenate the intermediate certificate with the domain certificate, but I had no CAcert.pem file after this process.

Do you see obvious flaws in that configuration? Please let me know if you need more details!
