Dear Sir, Google Canned Responses


Dear Sir, Google Canned Responses
by Susan Basko, esq.

Gmail has this new feature where when you send an email, it automatically creates a selection of 3 Canned Responses for your receiver to use in replying to you.  As the sender, you do not get to pick the responses being sent, and you do not even see them.  There is a way to turn them off, and this will be shown further below.

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 Martha 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?



And what's up with Jack at Twitter?



Finally, it seemed like Sergey at Google needed a few words of advice from me.


"It works"?  What sort of reply is that when I write to say gmail is broken?

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.
