GMail, GMail and GMail

You know how spam really gets in the way of email on your smartphone, there being no automatic junk mail detection? Here's a tip: change over to the free GMail. Google just released a video showing how their compehensive server side spam removal works. And, to back this up the Google OS blog has a graph showing GMail's spam performance over time. Finally, if you have me (Steve) in your Contacts, my new email address is slitchfield{at}gmail.com. Really.

Read on in the full article.

Thumbs up Me Heart Gmail

AND you can make Gmail check for for mail in your other accounts: [I can not post link here, but search in Gmail's help page]

You can even make Gmail pretend to be sending from one of your other accounts.

Thumbs up

GMAIL is by far the best thing internet-related in the past 5 years. It really trouches competitors, it's fast, fail proof, safe, clean. I assume having developed GMAIL would be the end-all, be-all dream of any coder... Long Live and Prosper GMAIL

Yeah, GMail's anti-spam is really good (not perfect - but much better than anything else I've seen). Plus their GMail app even works on my 9500, although I prefer to use Messaging to download emails for off-line reading.

Thumbs up Love Gmail !

And have used it since... Yeah, a very long time.

My absolutely favorite feature is the pop3 support. I can get my mail in the native e-mail application in my Nokia 9300, Nokia E61, Palm TX, HTC Touch, yes even in my Nokia 6131 ! And all for free.

This was a brilliant step from Google.

And since a few days, they even have IMAP support. Works really well on my E70.

I saw IMAP on a new GMail account that I created for someone, but my old account still only supports POP :-(

I didn't have the IMAP setting until I changed my language to English (US) instead of English (UK)

I don't have IMAP yet, though I've already got my account set to English (US). I even tried changing it to English (UK) and back, but no luck so far.

I hear they are rolling it out in phases to all users. Giving IMAP to a new user is faster than rolling it out to existing ones. Maybe thats why.

But remember: By switching to google mail, you lose your privacy. Search robots get to know your emails, and the emails itself are archieved in the united states, so the us-state could read them. Funny: If Microsoft would have done this, there would have been an uproar of protests. Still with google nobody seems to care.

Thumbs down !hooYa!hooYa!hooYa

Yahoo! used to have the same "Report Spam" button, last time I used their e-mail. And... the button never helped. Well, at least me. I was getting consistently the same enormous amount of spam. Most, but not all of it, ended up in the Bulk mail folder. Circa 2001 they stopped free POP3 access (became $20/y option) and, with no IMAP. I asked for IMAP/SSL support and told them I would pay. All I got was a lousy "no no" answer. Then they started the lousy Beta program which decided for itself which encoding it should use for every e-mail. First I shun it, using the Regular, but then they removed encoding detection (support) from that! Can you imagine? What kind of global thinking it takes to suggest only Western encoding? Changing encoding from browser would not help then. And guess what... another lousy support reply. One more incident of "support" like that and off I went, after 10 years of usage. After considering of paying for what they could offer.
