Everybody is indeed a part of some small group in everyday life. Maybe a football team, a book club, yoga class, or even your children’s play group or even a dance class. You may even be part of a residence association or a neighborhood watch.
All these groups always need information to flow in case of any events or even for a regular everyday schedule. Emails are some of the most popular and easiest way to spread information formally. But rather, email may also have some problems such as, it may be difficult for you to set up an email group such as Yahoo and it is overcomplicated with features that are probably never used by you.
Another issue comes when, you forget email addresses for everyone in the group and it becomes irritating if someone gets left out. The emails can also start discussion, and if sometime doesn’t reply to all, someone gets left out and ultimately, the information gets fragmented and all falls apart.
To solve all such issues, one simple solution was introduced, i.e. Gaggle. It is the simplest way to setup and maintain an email. Gaggle mail gives you your permanent @gaggle.email address that everyone in the group can use to contact everyone else with a great ease.
