Gmail plays an essential role in our life. People use Gmail for sending appointment letters, leave applications, resignation letters, etc. At the same time, we can’t neglect that most of the Inbox of Gmail users comprises advertisements. It is worth noting that not all of the advertisements related mails are useful.
