Google Operating System: Hidden Labels in Gmail

Google Operating System: Hidden Labels in Gmail

Gmail has many other hidden labels that can make your life easier, so you don't have to use the advanced search:

* label:inbox - search only your Inbox. It's a good idea to keep your Inbox clean.

* label:star (label:starred) - search only your starred messages. You can use the star button like a bookmarking system. Star only important messages.

* label:draft (or label:drafts) - search only unfinished messages. Drafts could be used for storing notes or emails that must be sent later.

* label:sent (or label:sentmail, label:sent-mail, label:sent mail ) - search only sent mail. It may be useful to restrict your search only to messages you've sent, or only to messages you've received if you add a minus.

* label:all (or label:allmail, label:all-mail, label:all mail ) - search all your mail, including messages from Trash (label:trash) and Spam (label:spam).

* label:read and label:unread. Restrict your search only to read mail or unread mail. For example, to find all your sent messages that have unread replies, you can search for label:unread label:sent.

* label:voicemail (or label:voicemails ) - search only the voice mails received from a Google Talk User

ઝરૂખો - સૈફ પાલનપુરી

શાંત ઝરૂખે વાટ નિરખતી
રૂપની રાણી જોઇ હતી
મેં એક શહજાદી જોઇ હતી……

એના હાથની મહેંદી હસતી’તી,
એની આંખનું કાજળ હસતું’તુ,
એક નાનું સરખું ઉપવન જાણે
મોસમ જોઇ મલકતું’તુ.
એના સ્મિતમાં સો સો ગીત હતાં,
એની ચુપકીદી સંગીત હતી,
એને પડછાયાની હતી લગન,
એને પગરવ સાથે પ્રીત હતી.
એણે આંખના આસોપાલવથી,
એક સ્વપ્નમહલ શણગાર્યો’તો,
જરા નજરને નીચી રાખીને,
એણે સમયને રોકી રાખ્યો’તો.
એ મોજાં જેમ ઉછળતી’તી,
ને પવનની જેમ લહરાતી’તી,
કોઇ હસીન સામે આવે તો ,
બહુ પ્યારભર્યું શરમાતી’તી.
તેને યૌવનની આશિષ હતી,
એને સર્વ કળાઓ સિધ્ધ હતી,
એના પ્રેમમાં ભાગીદાર થવા,
ખુદ કુદરત પણ આતૂર હતી……

વર્ષો બાદ ફરીથી આજે
એ જ ઝરૂખો જોયો છે.
ત્યાં ગીત નથી, સંગીત નથી;
ત્યાં પગરવ સાથે પ્રીત નથી.
ત્યાં સ્વપ્નાઓના મહેલ નથી,
ને ઉર્મિઓના ખેલ નથી.
બહુ સૂનું સૂનું લાગે છે,
બહુ વસમું વસમું લાગે છે.
એ ન્હોતી મારી પ્રેમિકા,
કે ન્હોતી મારી દુલ્હન,
મેં તો એને માત્ર ઝરૂખે
વાટ નીરખતી જોઇ હતી.
કોણ હતી એ નામ હતું શું ?
એ પણ હું ક્યાં જાણું છું ?
એમ છતાંયે દિલને આજે
વસમું વસમું લાગે છે,
બહુ સૂનું સૂનું લાગે છે…….

Yahoo!'s Phising Proof Login

Yahoo! has come up with a new idea to catch up with phising attempt on their site's login page !

Yahoo! now gives an option to select an image from your computer to be shown whenever you attempt to access Yahoo!'s login page from your computer.
This image will be shown by Yahoo! at the right-top of your login box on Yahoo!'s login page!

Or you may set some special text message to be shown to you whenever you attempt to login to Yahoo!

This will assure you that it is Yahoo's official login page not any phising attempt.

Note: You may use Mozilla Firefox's latest version to prevent such phising attempts.
It senses such phising attempt & shows you a warning that this is a possible phising attempt.
For example,
Try surfing for, www.ork0t.com from firefox browser. It will warn you of phising for that !

Yeah, U'll need to make such settings for every computer u r usin to login yahoo! ;)

Thanks :)

Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye - Movie Report

I went for the premier of the movie "Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye" starring Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Bipasa Basu, Anil Kapoor on Thursday night with friends.

Overall a nice movie after a long time. Good handy n short dialouges. "Ring do", "Do you like cold coffee?", "Ehsas" and all.

Oh did I mentioned about Katrina ? She looks gorgeous and amazingly she has improved her acting. She acted much better than Maine Pyar Kyon Kiya.

No need to write about Akshay, He has worked from the heart. He has shown he can fit any role in movies.

Anil Kapoor sux, someone else would have been a better choice. His role is somewhat similar to Taal. Nothing special except his weird look.

A nice movie which can be seen with family after a long time.

Deal on the Future of the .COM domain Approved By ICANN

The body that oversees the Names and Numbers over the Internet has approved the controversial deal with a US Firm Verisign about the .COM domain

It all started with the New Service by Verisign called "Site Finder"

When a net user went to a .com domain that was non-existent or expired, Site Finder redirected them to the Verisign and giving them a chance to buy the domain rather that letting him see the error page.

Verisign stopped the service on ICANN's request. But fined a lawsuit against the ICANN.

ICANN counterattacked Verisign.

Now they are on the way of settlement.

In the meeting held on 28th Feb, 2006, Nine people voted confirming the deal against 5 non-confirmative votes and 1 abstained vote.

Currently the deal is in hands of US Department of Commerce (USDOC) for final approval. ICANN people say only .COM domain needs such approval from USDOC.

Now Verisign will have the control over .COM domains and also it can increase the prices of .COM domains Four times in next Six Years. This means it will have the monopoly over the .COM damain till 2012.

Proposed Verisign Settlement

ICANN Announcement regarding this


ICANN is an internationally organised, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions. As a private-public partnership, ICANN is dedicated to preserving the operational stability of the Internet; to promoting competition; to achieving broad representation of global Internet communities; and to developing policy appropriate to its mission through bottom-up, consensus-based processes.

Akshay Kumar

Let me write something about my fav. hindi movie actor
>> Akshay Kumar

His real name is Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia

Before coming to films he was a cook at Bangkok and a part-time trainer of Karate.

His First movie was 'Saugandh' with Karishma Kapoor.
Now he is married to Twinkle Khanna & has a son named Aarav.

If Akshay Kumar was not a film star today, he'd probably be a Karate trainer going by the name of Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia. He inherited the
name at birth and the passion for the martial arts when he was in
class eight. His first tryst with the camera was when he modelled in an ad for a furniture store. On the day his picture was first published in a film weekly, he woke up his mother excitedly at 5 a.m. and the two of them cried together at his accomplishment. “You'll go a long way,” she promised him, and her prophecy came true.

Mail Headers - 2 (Forward Mail Conversation)

This example shows how the Resent (Forwarded) E-mail messages works ...


Resent messages (Forward Messges)

Scene 1 : John sends a mail to Mary

From: John Doe
To: Mary Smith
Subject: Saying Hello
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 09:55:06 -0600
Message-ID: <1234@local.machine.example>

This is a message just to say hello.
So, "Hello".

Say that Mary, upon receiving this message, wishes to send a copy of
the message to Jane such that
(a) the message would appear to have come straight from John;
(b) if Jane replies to the message, the reply should go back to John; and
(c) all of the original information, like the date the message was originally sent to Mary,
the message identifier, and the original addressee, is preserved.
In this case, resent fields are prepended to the message:

Scene 2 : Mary resents(forwards) the mail to Jane

Resent-From: Mary Smith
Resent-To: Jane Brown
Resent-Date: Mon, 24 Nov 1997 14:22:01 -0800
Resent-Message-ID: <78910@example.net>
From: John Doe
To: Mary Smith
Subject: Saying Hello
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 09:55:06 -0600
Message-ID: <1234@local.machine.example>

This is a message just to say hello.
So, "Hello".

If Jane, in turn, wished to resend this message to another person,
she would prepend her own set of resent header fields to the above
and send that.


Resent-From: Jane Brown
Resent-To: Mary Smith
Resent-Date: Wed, 26 Nov 1997 18:20:01 -0800
Resent-Message-ID: <98510@example.net>
Resent-From: Mary Smith
Resent-To: Jane Brown
Resent-Date: Wed, 26 Nov 1997 18:20:01 -0800
Resent-Message-ID: <78910@example.net>
From: John Doe
To: Mary Smith
Subject: Saying Hello
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 09:55:06 -0600
Message-ID: <1234@local.machine.example>

This is a message just to say hello.
So, "Hello".


Mail Headers - 1 (Mail Conversation)

This is an example fetched from RFC 2822 : Internet Message Format to get a glimpse of the format of e-mails


Mail Conversation Headers

Have a close look at Message-ID and References fields also...

Scene 1 : John Sends a Mail to Mary

From: John Doe
To: Mary Smith
Subject: Saying Hello
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 09:55:06 -0600
Message-ID: <1234@local.machine.example>

This is a message just to say hello.
So, "Hello".

When sending replies, the Subject field is often retained, though prepended with "Re: "

Scene 2 : Mary Sends a Reply Mail to John, (Note : She has a different Reply-To Address)

From: Mary Smith
To: John Doe
Reply-To: "Mary Smith: Personal Account"
Subject: Re: Saying Hello
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 10:01:10 -0600
Message-ID: <3456@example.net>
In-Reply-To: <1234@local.machine.example>
References: <1234@local.machine.example>

This is a reply to your hello.

Note the "Reply-To:" field in the above message. When John replies
to Mary's message above, the reply should go to the address in the
"Reply-To:" field instead of the address in the "From:" field.

Scene 2 : John Sends a Reply Mail to Mary @ her Reply-To Address

To: "Mary Smith: Personal Account"
From: John Doe
Subject: Re: Saying Hello
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 11:00:00 -0600
In-Reply-To: <3456@example.net>
References: <1234@local.machine.example> <3456@example.net>

This is a reply to your reply.
