Hey has anyone else here discovered the awesome features of gmail - the google email program?

 

In short, it's free and gives you 2.5 gig of storage space for saved email!

 

You can read about it here:

 

http://mail.google.com/mail/help/about.html

 

A buddy of mine recently introduced me to gmail and I just love it! Currently it's only available through an invitation from another gmail user, but I have many invites available, so if you'd like one, let me know.

 

Special Note for escorts: I know two escorts who use gmail exclusively because it's so easy to organize client email. They both say there's nothing like it.

 

And, no, this is not a paid advertisement. :+

I tried gmail briefly when it was new. It's adequate if you can't afford something better. It (and yahoo and hotmail) is particularly useful because you're not tied to any single ISP. Change ISP's and you don't have to change your email address.

 

My biggest gripe with any "free" service, no matter how much space they give you, is that they make you store email on their servers. I'll store the stuff myself, thank you very much, so when that "free" (hey, SOMEBODY is paying for it!) service isn't free any more I'm not held hostage to get MY data back.

 

Hotmail customers were recently upset when hotmail removed features (i.e. POP3 access) unless you became a paid member. The other shoe will drop on Gmail as well.

I would love to use Gmail, but I shudder at the thought of changing my email address. I've actually registered my gmail account, but haven't gotten the nerve yet to try to get everyone to start using that account.

gmail has POP3 access so you can download all of your email

if that is what you want to do

Brad,

 

Why don't you plan a slow transition. Start by forwarding all of your email to GMail. Start sending from Gmail to decide if you like it. When you are ready set up an auto reply on your existing email acct along with the forward for as long as it takes.

I can't say for Eudora, but in Outlook that's a setup option on the account. You can choose to delete mail from the server once downloaded.

I'm not a professional "techie", but it's my understanding that e-mails are archived on the ISP's server indefinitely in order to be able to comply with subpoenas, etc. The option a user has to delete from server merely deletes the e-mail from the user's account space on the server.
