    You mentioned that you couldn’t find any documentation about the Gmail features. I should have mentioned this last week, but I didn’t have the link handy. I found out about the address extensions as well as some other Gmail tips from this article:


    It’s definitely worth looking through if you plan on actively using your Gmail account.

    By the way, my wife and I really appreciated the stream of the MLC call service. We weren’t able to travel over there, but we were still able to watch as my wife’s sister’s call was announced. It was really exciting!
