I always love to find out new and simpler ways to do things.  And, when it involves using my voice instead of my fingers to have actions magically happen on my phone or tablet…it is so much FUN!  Check out these tips to have Siri help you with your email.

1. Find out whether you have any new email messages:  To find out whether you have any new email messages, ask Siri: “Do I have new email messages?”, “How many unread emails do I have?” or “Show me my new email messages”.  To find new emails from just today, ask Siri: “How many new (or unread) emails do I have today?” You can also ask Siri how many new emails you have on a specific date.
2. Find out whether you received any email messages on a specific date.  To find out whether you received email messages on a specific date, ask Siri: “Did I receive any emails on April 30th?”
3. Find out whether you received any email messages on a specific day.  To find out whether you received email messages on a specific day, ask Siri: “Did I receive any emails on Monday?”  Siri displays emails from the previous Monday.
4. Find email messages from a specific sender.  To find out whether you received new email messages from a specific sender, ask Siri: “Are there any new emails from [sender name]?”Siri
5. Find all “new” email messages from a specific sender.   To find out whether you received “new” email messages on a specific sender, ask Siri: “Did I receive any new emails [sender name]”
6. Find email messages from a more than one sender.  To find out whether you received email messages from more than one sender, ask Siri: “Did I receive any emails from [sender name 1] and [sender name 2]”
7. Read my new email messages.  To have Siri read you a summary of your new or unread email messages, ask Siri: “Read my new emails.”  Note – Siri stated how many new emails messages I had and then told me who the sender, date and subject of the three most recent email messages. Then, Siri asked me whether I wanted it to read me the rest of the new emails.
8. Read my latest email message.  To have Siri read you the date, sender, subject, and entire email message of your latest email message, ask Siri: “Read my latest email message.”  Note: Get this, after Siri read the full message to me, it ask me if I would like to reply. If you say yes, she will then ask you for your reply and whether you want to send the reply. How cool is that?!?!
9. Read my latest email message from a specific sender.  To have Siri read you the date, sender, subject, and entire email message of the latest email message from a specific sender, ask Siri: “Read my latest emails message from [sender].”  Siri read the full message to me, it ask me if I would like to reply.
10. Send message to contact and carbon copy contact.  OK…I threw in one “send” message tip that I discovered today…To have Siri send a message to a contact and carbon copy another contact, Tell Siri: “Send email to [first contact] and carbon copy [second contact].”  Siri will then ask you for the message subject, message, and whether you want to send it.

Pretty cool stuff isn’t it.  If you learned something today, please leave us a comment.  We would love to hear from you.
