Screenshots of gmail-lite

gmail-lite in Netfront 3.1

Click on an image to see a larger one (in new window).

This is the sign-in (login) page. Timezone is needed to view the mail arrival time in your timezone correctly. Note that with Apache+SSL your login is SSL-protected (see the "lock" at the top).
This is the summary page. From here you can see how many new messages you have in the "standard boxes" (e.g. Inbox, Starred, Sent, etc.) and your pre-defined labels.

The four shortcuts at the top will be shown in every pages: "summary" to go back to this summary page; "unread" to display a list of unread messages; "compose" to compose and send gmails; and "logout" to logout.
Click on one of the boxes in the summary page will lead you to the list view. Similar to the official GMail, it shows a list of conversations. However, only 10 of them would be shown on each page (unlike 25 in the official GMail) in order to save bandwidth. You may click "Nxt" and "Prv" (not shown here) to go through different pages.

The two pulldown menus at the top is a shortcut to standard boxes and labels (see next figure). The blank input space is for you to input search string, equivalent to what you see in the official GMail. Press the "Get" button when you have selected the box/label or inputed your search string.

The two pulldown menus at the bottom is for you to perform different actions on messages selected (by ticking them, see next figure). Actions including label-applying, label-removing, star-ing, unstar-ing, archiving, deleting, etc. are fully supported.

If there are any attaching files in a conversation, "+" signs will be shown next to the subject of it, indicating the number of attaching files it has. For example, "+++" indicates a total of 3 attaching files. This can also be seen in search results view.

Also, you can see easily if a conversation is starred.

The conversation page displays all messages belonging to that conversation. For each message, there are two small buttons: "reply" allows you to reply to the message (conversation) directly; "orig" allows you to read the original format (with header information, etc.) of the message.

It may also show the filename of attachments each message has, and you may click on each of them to download it (not shown here because the messages do not have attachment).

(This message was sampled from a security mailing-list I subscribed. Some email addresses are covered for privacy.)
A "collapsed" view of the same conversation before. For collapsed message, you may click on the button "more" to read the whole message.
[gmail-lite 0.55] Starred conversation is starred (next to subject). Labels applied to this conversation are shown (lower-left corner). And you can perform all actions on this conversation (lower-right corner).
This is the search results page. The query string is shown (here: label m:security has:attachment) in brown. All conversations found come with a "preview" (or "snippet" as GMail calls it): the text under the white conversation subject bar.

The "+" sign next to the subject of a conversation indicates the number of attaching files it has. For example, "+++" indicates a total of 3 attaching files. And a starred conversation will have a star next to it. This can also be seen in list view.

You may also select and perform all kinds of action on them.
Click on "compose" or "reply" will lead you to this compose page, where you can compose and send your gmail. In the most recent version of gmail-lite, you may attach one file (max. 5MB) for each message.
Click on the button "contact(freq)" will show you a list of addresses in your frequently-used address book (similarly for "contact(all)"). Here, you can simply select all you want to include, then click on the button "to"/"cc"/"bcc" if you want these selected addresses to be shown in the "to"/"cc"/"bcc" field.

(Again email addresses are covered for privacy reason.)

gmail-lite in Opera 6.2 for Symbian, Siemens SX1

Special thanks to t0rkel for providing the screenshots!

Summary page.

Yes, you will be informed if you, like t0rkel, got an invite. So you won't miss the chance to share GMail with your friends :-D ! (This is a feature appears after gmail-lite ver. 0.5. You'd need to go back to the official GMail to use that invite, though.)


Selecting standard boxes and action to be performed from the two pulldown menus.
The list view.

The table-layout is somehow distorted. It seems that Opera for Symbian ignores table completely. Nonetheless gmail-lite is still perfectly workable, just to remember that a checkbox belongs to the message before it so you won't archive the wrong message ;-).
The conversation page.
Composing gmail.

gmail-lite with our old friends

IE3 is actually doing a pretty good job on rendering the pages :-D! However, it does not support "self-signed" certicates, so I couldn't access gmail-lite under SSL.
