I am a writer over at (and of course a Freebies4mom subscriber). There are some great articles about Gmail and other Google apps on the Google Channel. Everything you ever wanted to learn how to do is basically covered. Lifehacker is also a great source. Better Gmail2 (a firefox extension for Gmail) is fantastic.
