New Gmail Feature Allows Anyone On Google+ To Email You & Vice Versa, But Opt Out Is Provided

Google is today making a change to Gmail that will further bake in Google+ to its webmail product in a way thatís actually somewhat practical, though also potentially invasive. Going forward, youíll now be able to directly email your Google+ contacts from Gmail, even if you donít know their email address. And by default, anyone on Google+ will be able to email you as well, thanks to this new option, if you donít adjust your settings.

I know some people who aren't going to be too thrilled with this new feature.

I've kept this on just to see what will come through. So far I haven't noticed any. Apparently it's simple to turn off or limit.
