Question about Google Gmail

3 Answers

I need a better email system!

I have been using Gmail but it doesn't have the utility I need. I really don't want to change to Outlook. I'd love some recommendations on any other options. Here is my dream list of features:

*When reading an email, I'd like to see all other correspondences I've had with that person automatically displayed or tabbed or whatever.

*I would like a handier system for categorizing emails other than hiding them away in folders as I can do on Gmail.

*I would like a more detailed tagging system than just stars and colors, as with Gmail. It would especially be great if I could add notes or metadata to individual emails, as well as to email addresses.

*I would like a system with better metrics so that I can quantify how many emails I receive on any given day/time period. Because Gmail groups conversations, I haven't been able to accurately measure how much email I receive without counting it manually.

Oh, and it has to be free.

Is that too much to ask? :)

    Thanks for that suggestion, sorose4u. I have looked at the reviews for incredimail and they're pretty split. Ultimately, I need something that won't burden my system or cause registry errors, as many complain about with incredimail.

    So I'm still on the hunt for the new system, but I appreciate your great advice.

    Thanks afroxav. I already looked at IncrediMail after sorose4u recommended it, and I'd rather not go that route. But thanks for the suggestion!

Gmail is pretty full of additional controls. And for now is the best web mail service.
You should go to new version and use "Lab" (green bottle in upper right corner). There you can find many additional options...something like add-ons for Firefox.
For start experiment...then you will see it have many features than you will ever need.

IncrediMail is a mail client. You'll still have to have a mail account in gmail, but you can configure it (POP/IMAP) so that IncrediMail downloads all you messages automatically

How can I change my spam preferences


Hi,
seems that Gmail has completely devolved, use Outlook.com, it has all the options you need, it's just better,
I checked all the options but nothing about the spam, just nothing, go to Outlook.com and forward your mail there, it is better than Gmail, Gmail sucks! :)

I can't email my projects from Platinum 16 because I use Yahoo mail not Outlook Express. I also have a Gmail account but I don't see any way to change the OE default. I have XP Pro.


To make Outlook Express Your Default Windows Email Program :
1.Make sure Outlook Express is not running.
2.Select Run... from the Start menu.
3.Type "msimn /reg" (excluding the quotation marks).
4.Hit Enter.Wait for, say, ten seconds for the process to finish. Nothing will appear on screen. Do not let that disturb you.
5.Launch Outlook Express.
6.Select Tools ' Options... from the menu.
7.Go to the General tab.
8.Click Make Default under Default Messaging Programs.Click OK

Need to use it with email client


Yahoo mail was offering a free email account but with a limited features. You cannot use it to other email client unless you have to do an upgrade and pay for a period of time to their company. If you like to use an email client such as Outlook Express then it is better to use Gmail because they offer a free account and at the same time you could use an email client along with it. First you must create your very own Gmail account. When you have successfully create your Gmail account you have to do some Outlook Express configuration. You also have to do some Gmail configuration. Enjoy browsing!

Linda,
I'm a little confused. Do you mean your Mail program that comes with your OS is not working? and you've changed your email address with Gmail?

If this is the case, you need to change the email address in "preferences." Open your mail program, click "Mail" in the top bar, then select "Preferences" in the menu. A box will pop up. Change the email address in accounts. You'll need to type the entire address (lindah.heatley4@googlemail.com) If your password has changed, change that too. Make sure the incoming (pop.gmail.com) and outgoing servers (smtp.gmail.com) are set for Gmail. If this is not your problem, please clarify.

I cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

HP scanner default email is Outlook Express I use Gmail


Gmail is an e-mail service, not a client (program used to access e-mail). In order to make thie work with gmail, you would need to install a different e-mail client that supports gmail, such as IncrediMail.

Hi,

You should have the drivers from the recovery discs that came with your PC. You can try thunderbird as an alternative email client.
