Gmail

Post by Moni »

- how the hell do i send mail to multiple recipients via gmail?

- isn't it really great for mailing lists?

- ... somewhat confusing?

- who wants one, i've got 2 invites left (PM me 1st+last name [don't have to be real] and secondary e-mail address).

liz, you can just type the addresses in separated by a comma.

I like it, but I'm not sure I like it better than a pop account I can use a mail client with. For some reason, I just have an aversion to strictly web email. This might change.

ah, i meant of course multiple recipients from my address book. usually you can just click on all the names you want to send it to, but with gmail i don't see that happen. me weird?

Ahhh, hmmmm. I haven't tried and I can't check web email at work. It is beta. Maybe that's a suggestion that the gmailers need.

I don't know about cool.. it's just a web mail that is free and big enough to send and store mp3s, graphics, half-finished essays, etc but it's still in development mode, so it's fairly bare-bones. Google run it.

im getting used to it.

and magically.... my hotmail account all of a sudden has a HUGE amount of storage space. hm. i wonder if this is related?

anyways. the only downfalls i've found so far:
no 'advanced info option' where you can see the IP address if need be like in hotmail options.
folders - can you make any?? what's up with that? i havent caught onto the 'create a filter' crap. i dont even know what this means although i think it's what i'd want to do. who knows.

i definitely think it was innovative.
i know it got me more space on my hotmail acct.

I noticed than on my account too. My guess would be that it is related.

wasn't the idea that you don't need folders, because you can search in a zillion ways so you can always find what you want?
don't listen to me, I don't have G-mail

isn't it nice to have Google force MS to get working?
oh, and I downloaded Firefox, which is like Netscape (good!) but improved (even better!)

me happy
