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.
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.

Lightning blew up your computer? How? Did it actually strike the computer... unlikely, but if it did....you now have a molten piece of technology what you can call "to be recycled". :-) What you really mean is lighting caused a power surge with travelled through the wired connections in your home and upset the Operating system as well as some programs, namely your e-mail program. In this case, what e-mail system ae you using? YAHOO, GOOGLE, OUTLOOK?
For any INTERNET type email, you have to contact the appropriate provider's support and explain what happened and hopefully they will have a copy of your emails. FOR MS Outlook... Check your Deleted FOLDER... if it's not there, it's probably residing on the server, BUT.... you have to ensure, the setting "KEEP MESSAGES ON SERVER" is checked in OUTLOOK....
In Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010/2013:
Go to Tools, Account Settings in Outlook 2007; File, Account settings in Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013
Select the Email account, click Change (or double-click on the email account)
Click More Settings
Go to the Advanced tab - leave on server settings are in the lower section
Google has its own mail server. If you decide to create an email address with Google, your mail will be managed there. You can access thru the gmail web site for mail, or use an app (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) to view your mail
Try accessing your email account from a web browser only. Do NOT use an email client such as outlook. If that works then you know your account name and password are correct. If not you will need to reset your password again. If that does work then check your settings in your client software. Google "correct settings for Gmail" an dyou will see what you need to change.
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! :)
you really need to provide more information. Which client are you using? yahoo? gmail? outlook?
if you can answer this question then you are a step closer to getting an answer. if you cant then you shouldnt be using email.
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!
POP and SMTP Access service is active. Once
configured, POP Access allows you to download, read, manage, and send
your Net@ddress Messaging Center email on your computer, both online
and offline, using your favorite email client.
IMAP and SMTP services are active. IMAP is
a method of accessing your email messages that are kept on a mail
server. Once configured, IMAP allows you to download, read, manage, and
send your email Messaging Center email using your favorite email
client while online or offline. Using an IMAP-compliant email client
such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Netscape Messenger, an
IMAP user can access his/her email on the server from different
locations, using both the IMAP client and the WebMail client. For
example, when you read a message and store it in a special folder in
your IMAP client while at work, you can access that message and folder
while reading your email at home with the WebMail client or with
another IMAP client without having to transfer messages or folders
between computer stations.
Are you accessing your Gmail account through Web or did you configure it in an e-mail client like Outlook 03/07, Outlook Express?
If you're accessing your Gmail using Web, there should be no problem. But I think that you are using Outlook. If you do, just change the Incoming port number. If it's set to 110, then change it to 993.
However, you need to check also if you set up the forwarding feature of your Gmail to forward the messages into an alternate e-mail address.
On your Gmail, click on Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP and make sure that forwarding is disabled.
