About two years ago, I decided to use Gmail for all of my email needs, including reading and responding to my domain-based email.

Yesware helps you sell more effectively right from your inbox. It offers email tracking, email templates, sync with CRM program, and reports and analytics for everyone on your team. via a free add-on for Chrome and Firefox (sorry Internet Explorer users). Yesware is the perfect plug-in for any business owner because it works in Gmail where you do. By installing Yesware you’ll never have to guess who opened your email or waste time copying and pasting commonly-used email texts. You’ll be notified who read your email as well as when, where, and what device opened your message. Customizable email templates are available to you, as well as the ability to sync your CRM with the push of a button and receive automated reports to manage your progress and to see who you should follow up with.
The templates feature is my favorite. Although Gmail offers Canned Responses that you can activate in Labs, I like the ability to organize my templates into Prospecting, Pipeline, Objections, Support, and whatever other categories I want to create. You can choose your best templates by seeing which ones your customers reply to most and incorporate links and rich text to send great looking messages at the click of a button. You can also use [brackets] in the templates to indicate custom fields to make your templates more personalized, and even faster and easier to use. If you work with a team, Yesware Teams make it easy to share winning messages and view detailed team reports. You name your team, invite colleagues to collaborate, and share you winning email templates with each other to increase sales and productivity
