Dear Sir, Google Canned Responses
by Susan Basko, esq.
What kind of Canned Responses does Gmail generate? I started sending emails to find out. I started with a religious query to a pastor. This is my email and in the blue are the Canned Responses.
Next, I tried a business letter regarding contracts ready to be signed, with a possible side of fries.
Perhaps Sunday dinner with Marta Stewart and Snoop Dogg.
Then I thought I'd ask Elon Musk to put me in his space program and send me to Mars. Let's see what his reply options are.
Next it seemed like Southwest Airlines needed a talking-to.
Harvard University was up next.
Then I got to thinking how poorly Serena Williams was treated on the tennis court recently.
Maybe Donald Trump needed a few encouraging words?
Maybe Kanye West could run for president next time?
Finally, it seemed like Sergey at Google needed a few words of advice from me.
This is how to turn off the Canned Responses on Gmail: Go up on the top right hand side to the little GEAR thing. Click it and choose SETTINGS. From the top bar menu, choose ADVANCED. Next choose: CANNED RESPONSES -- and choose DISABLE. Then you need to scroll to the bottom and click on SAVE CHANGES.
