    Yeah the FireFox plug-in is sooooo handy. However, I keep finding that every now & then it won't log me in to my Gmail page when it tries & loads. The log in section is just a dark grey box :(

    I reckon a lot more people will use Gmail now that the POP feature's been added in. :)

    That's what i plan to use when i get back to using outlook again. Wonder if itll stay or be a pay feature when gmail goes public? Tbh, i hope it always stays beta.

    That's what i mean, the invite system works great and is better at stopping spammers and trolls from using it as free email.

    I think I have a guardian angel. After 4 years of signing up to hundreds of forums and other things with my ISP email, I just started getting a couple of spam messages in the last 3 months. They've stopped now too :p


    My gmail has taken over as my forum signer upper and it hasn't gotten spam either.

    weird.

    1 gets no spam, and the other gets 129 spams per day average.

    I never got any spam till I changed my xanga account email over to my gmail account. (/me eyes xanga) But I never used it for anything than emailing people, never to sign up for anything. But it is only like 2 every day, and they are always in the spam bin, not the inbox. So kudos for good filtering...
