Argh! Gmail image spam!
I'm getting 20 of these a day. Since Google has failed to filter these messages, is there a workaround I can use? Also, would simply deleting these messages rather than marking them as spam reduce the possibility of false positives?

Whenever I'm actively browsing the web, I like to keep a tab open to my Gmail account. But I don't particularly want my Google searches to be linked to the Gmail account. Is there any way to prevent this?

How reliable do you find Gmail's spam filtering? Do i need to check the spam folder before I (or Gmail) empty it? It seems quite good to me - I've been using it since february, and it's been months since any real mail got filtered as spam, and relatively few spam get through. But checking is getting tiresome. what is your experience?

I’m hoping that someone can provide me with some email tips, specifically for a Hotmail user.
The main problem I’ve been having is finding a streamlined solution for all of my email accounts. Here’s my current setup/status:
- 1 hotmail account (my main application)
- 2 gmail accounts (used mainly for online sign ups and the like)
- 1 work email account
- 1 account through my ISP (time warner – roadrunner)
- Multiple site accounts at joelneuenhaus.com
- To wrap it all up, I use MS Outlook 2003 (work is accessed directly through an Outlook POP3 setup; my website accounts are forwarded to gmail and gmail is forwarded to hotmail; my ISP account is accessed via POP mail retrieval in Hotmail – a real pain – finally Hotmail is accessed through an Outlook HTML account) [more inside]

GmailFilter: I am having a hard time keeping my gmail inbox down to manageable numbers. I want to do something very specific. Is it possible to set gmail to automatically archive all read messages? That way my inbox stays clear and I don't have to remember to constantly click the archive button after reading a message.

Hotmail and gmail. How do I get my saved hotmail messages over to gmail while still maintaining the original sender as the sender (since if I just forwarded them my hotmail address would replace the original sender's when they appear in gmail)?

When I'm writing an email using Gmail, every draft version of it ends up on my BlackBerry because of the autosave feature. If I take my time writing, this can add up to an insane number of drafts popping up, and drives me batty. How can I prevent this from happening without switching POP access on and off manually, and without disabling autosave?

I have a Gmail account and a university email account (IMAP), both configured through OSX's Mail (the IMAP is only for sending mail; all incoming mail comes through the Gmail account). Lately, none of my email has been showing up in Mail (I know this because I've started keeping Gmail Notifier on the menubar as a double-check). It's not just that it takes a while to collect; it just never actually appears in my Mail.app inbox. I've double checked all my settings against Google's instructions, and even removed and re-added the mailbox.
Any ideas as to what could have gone wrong and how I could fix it?

Safari + gmail question. Is it possible to press the 'Send' button in gmail with the keyboard using Safari? I can tab to the button so that it is highlighted but it seems that there is no way to press it from the keyboard. In Firefox this is easily done -- highlight the button and press return and the message sends. In Safari this typically works with similar setups, but not gmail buttons. I know this sounds like a picky thing to ask but it has been bugging me for ages.

I dutifully label "conversations" in Gmail, and would now like to e-mail everyone with whom I've ever corresponded with on one such labeled topic. Is there any way to automatically generate a huge cc/bcc list from all the conversations under a label?

Is there a way to connect to gmail using pop from behind a firewall that blocks the ports they specify? Ideally over 80? I don't have broadband at home so setting up a tunnel or variation to a pc on the outside isn't an option. Thunderbird on WinXP connected behind a typical corporate firewall.

I am working on an application that will send an html-newsletter. It looks great in thunderbird or Outlook, and like crap in Gmail or Hotmail, which a lot of the recipients use. The template uses css, which is included in the headers of the message (not linked).
What is the common wisdom about html-email that looks good in Hotmail and Gmail? Is there any way to keep the CSS or do I have to start over from scratch? [more inside]

GmailFilter: I switched to Gmail over a year ago, and I think it's great. But one feature that Yahoo and Hotmail have I haven't been able to find on Gmail: when I write an email and want to send to multiple people, what's the best way to do this? With Hotmail, for example, the "To" is a hyperlink and brings up a small popup list of all your contacts--very simple and convenient. Does Gmail have a similar feature? I canna find it!

How do I auto- forward a copy of all emails received and sent to gmail? I use Windows XP with Outlook Express and I have discovered it doesn't seem to have this function available. I would be willing to switch apps if one could automatically forward a copy of everything I send out to my gmail account and also copy and forward all incoming mail to my gmail. I want to still primarily use a pop3 email client, but send a copy to gmail for archiving purposes. Any ideas on the best way to get this done?
