What vocabulary terms and definitions would be good to know for people new to Gmail?

Labels (Settings -> Labels) - A Gmail label is basically the same as an email folder, but it's possible for an email to exist within multiple labels.

Filters (Settings -> Filters) - A filter is a mail rule that can be used to automatically add one or more labels to an email, or take other actions on an email such as forwarding or deleting the email.

Labs (Settings -> Labs) - Labs are addons that can be used to add additional features and/or change the functionality within your Gmail account.
