  • If you go by a different name, create an alias. You can create an alias to have a different email address if you go by something other than your legal name. Go to the GSA Service Now self-service page and submit a “GSA Generic Request” (Home > Make a request > Other requests > GSA Generic Request) asking for the email alias that you want.

  • Create filters. You can create filters to manage the influx of automatic emails you’ll be receiving (like Region X Communications). You can select “add a label” and automatically “archive” or put messages into different folders.

  • You can set your photo for your Google profile in Gmail settings.
