    how has Gmail benefited you?

    Just got Gmail today and just wondering if there is a significant difference from all the other email accounts I have... Or am I overlooking a great feature. A simple list of benefits would be great thanks in advance!

    I like the fact that it is true POP3 without having to pay extra as you do with some other services. I limit who has my gmail address since I like not getting spam from there.

    I heard a lot of good things about GMail as far as bigger accounts than most, pop3, less spam and so forth...I have a GMail account but I still can't get use to the layout compared to Y!'s email layout.

    One thing about Gmail, there are so many other nice free services you can use. I use the Google Documents a lot. Lets me have access to my files from any pc!

    I can see the documents feature being very helpful in the future. Can you also access it via BB? Your documents and retrieve it from your BB I mean.

    No but I have them in my notes. You can also email them to the Google Docs.

    Re: how has Gmail benefited you?

    POP3 and IMAP are two protocols that mail programs can use to check mail from a computer.

    When an account such as GMail has POP3 access, it means you can check it from your home computer using a program such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird. Some people really don't like web based mail so this is a benefit for them.

    POP3 stands for Post Office Protocol 3. Until you fully understand POP3, IMAP is really of no concern to you.
    As always, just my opinion...

    it is free, I run my business from it but the $20/yr thing for Yahoo ain't too bad either.

    Free, fast and all that storage. I also have Yahoo but found it to be slower.

    Have been a heavy user of it for awhile. Integrates nicely with all the other google apps and tools and with the ever increasing storage I don't have to worry about backups.

    Spam filter is excellent and I now send all my mail from other accounts via g mail to weed out all the via gra emails.

    If anyone would like an invitation to g mail drop me a pm.

    And there is Google Apps (http://www.google.com/a/).. If you have a domain, you can point it to Google and use it for Gmail, Calendar, docs, etc..

    Re: how has Gmail benefited you?

    everything has been stated but one of the biggest things for me is the site almost is never down. I have never had any problems with gmail. its sold and reliable. spam filters are a god send, the storage as stated is awesome, and I love the fact that it has a chat feature built right in. a lot of my friend cannot use regular IM's at work but gmail gets around that fact. i would score gmail 15 out of 10...
