Outlook is Private - Really!

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Email,Google,Microsoft     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Logging into my Hotmail/Outlook account this morning I was greeted with this message touting the benefits of Outlook. They saved the best for last, claiming that "Outlook is private". Talk about false advertising.   It was barely a week ago when news leaked that Microsoft had snooped on an employee's Hotmail account while investigating a — Continue reading ยป

What Gmail Needs, Action Icons

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Email,Google     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

I have been a Gmail user since its debut and have never looked back since I migrated from Hotmail so many years ago. But I still use Hotmail (now known as Outlook) and Yahoo Mail on occasion for trivial emailing and one of the great features that they offer is one-click actions for delete or — Continue reading ยป

Gmail Storage Jumps to 10G

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Email,Google     #     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

Today I noticed my Gmail storage had jumped form 7.5G to 10G. Maybe it's Google's way of compensating for the new ugly design. I suspect in most cases users didn't even notice the change and for even more users like me, who try to keep their account clean, this is really not much of an — Continue reading ยป

The good times are over and the ugly Gmail era has dawned. Google finally made good on the threat of making the new look permanent. Over the weekend my Gmail style switched to the new ugliness and there was no longer an option available to revert to the old look as before. I can whine — Continue reading ยป

New Ugly Gmail Look

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Email,Google     # ,     ๐Ÿ—จ 9 Comments

Yesterday I was greeted by an icon in Gmail to try their new look. I clicked, played with the new look for a while and ran right back to the old look. Alas, Google seems determined to push the new Gmail look on users, whether they like it or not, so the classic look may — Continue reading ยป

Pasting images into Gmail

    ๐Ÿ“‚ Email,Google     # , ,     ๐Ÿ—จ No Comments

A great idea that was way overdue. I always liked the simplicity of copy/pasting images into outlook. Now Gmail lets users do the same. Granted that for now it's only supported in Chrome, but that's my default browser anyways. No more the old cumbersome copying, saving, naming, inserting, selecting, and finally deleting images. Pasting images — Continue reading ยป

One of my Web applications is hosted on 1&1 and it generally performs fine except for one problem. I have the application set up to send me emails based on certain events and I have noticed that some of those emails land in my spam folder. Here's why. The problem with applications on 1&1 shared — Continue reading ยป
