Are you getting pop ups when composing or replying to emails in Gmail?

Written By Ian Britten and Tibby Fielding

Are you receiving this pop up when composing or replying via Gmail?

This pop up is occurring because your Gmail signature contains images that have been copied and pasted into the signature. To fix this issue, you can insert image files into your signature. If you do not have the image files, there is an easy way to download them.

(Skip to Step 3 if you already have the image files saved on your device.) 

To download image files:

Step 1: Compose a new email and click the X on the loading box that pops up (exit out of the pop up).

Step 2: Right click on the images in your signature and click “Save as” to save them to your device.

Step 3: Delete the image(s) from your signature.

Insert the image(s) back into your Gmail signature: 

Step 4: Click on the Settings Gear > and choose the “See all settings” button.

Step 5: Select:  General Settings > Select Signature > Select the pencil button to edit the signature. Within the Signature textbox, >Select the “Insert image” button.

Step 6: Find the images that you saved on your device from your signature and select these files.

How to Create Gmail Filters

Occasionally, email does not behave the way it’s supposed to. A spam message may be allowed into your inbox or, worse, a valid email you need in order to effectively do your job might get filtered and sent to your spam box. The solution, if you use a Gmail or Gsuite email address, is to use filters.

Log into your email in a web browser such as Google Chrome and click on the gear icon in the upper right corner just below the colored circle with your first initial in it.

Choose Settings from the drop down menu and then choose Filters and Blocked Addresses from the tabs across the top.

Click “Create a new filter” (this is located below any existing filters and above the blocked email address list).

In the box that appears, you have several options to choose from. You can set any combination of From Address, To Address, Subject, Key Words etc.

Once you have entered the criteria for your filter, click create filter at the bottom of the pop up and you will be able to choose how Gmail handles messages matching your search. Again, you have several options including skip the inbox, mark as read, star it, apply a label, forward or delete the message, never send it to spam, always or never mark the message as important or categorize.

Example: You might have found yourself on an email list for a marketing company that sends you messages multiple times a day. You aren’t interested in what they are selling and you can’t seem to unsubscribe. Create a filter! Using the sending address as the filter criteria, you can tell Google  to delete the message.

Alternatively, you might get so many emails from your manager that Gmail treats some of them as spam. In this case, you could create a filter based on their email address to Never send to spam and you can make sure you’re always getting important emails.
