Gmail & Me

Yes I have finally got my invitation to beta test Gmail and yes I it works as advertised πŸ™‚

I can honestly say I am enjoying it, there is just so much that has been done to improve the way we interact with webmail systems that I will most probably scratch my hotmail account (which I have had for over 6 years) altogether.

A few things that still need to be done that I would like to see:

  • Save email drafts (this feature has yet to make an appearance in Gmail)
  • Ability to delete attachments from emails
  • Allow labels to be made into different colors

Things done well:

  • God damn I love Hot Keys, they are not enabled by default (SWITCH IT ON, you have no idea what you are missing!!)
  • Viewing emails as conversations (outstanding stuff).
  • 1GB of space (you just can not go wrong there).

Yes I am enjoying my Gmail tremendously, it is going to be very exciting when it goes public.

  1. i think gmail is grand as well, but if you’re a livejournal user the comment notification gets a little confusing as gmail tags every comment as being part of one big “lj” conversation!

    i enjoy your site muchly, and the funny thing is that i’ve found out that one of my friends is a workmate of yours πŸ˜€
    horah for brisbane’s 2 degrees of separation!

  2. Hmm odd, I tried out several auto emails on Gmail and I never experienced that problem (I bet you any money they will be fixing that problem considering how many LJ’ers will be registered with Gmail now.)

    It’s funny isnΒ’t it? I saw a few hits from your site and checked it out, only to find that one of your pals was Craig from work, so I decided to freak him out and let him know hehehe

    Glad you enjoy the site, stop by again some time πŸ™‚

  3. brisbane is so incestuous πŸ˜€
    we don’t really help the cause any by being so popular and beautiful and leaving our little hit trails all over the internet!

    although i might add, that i think you’ll have to fist fight me for chanel’s love and affection.
