Hope a hopeless new Android user

[I am old/paranoid/a special snowflake filter] I am a Mac person. I have mostly avoided google products in my life, and am not eager for google to know everything about me. I just got a Nexus S (because it was the free option). How can I use my phone most effectively for email and calendars/reminders? [Lots of tedious old person details inside] [more inside]

Gmail security settings???

I was checking the security setting on my gmail account this AM and was alarmed to see that govtrack.us had somehow been granted " granted the following services access to your Google Account". Especially concerning since i had never seen that site, or even heard of it. What gives?

App to track how long it took your recipient to respond?

Help me stay incognito in Gmail

In Gmail, is there a way to chat from an alternate email? They are both Gmail accounts. One is my main, which the chat defaults to. I would like to be able to chat from my alt email so I can don't have to give out my full name to random folks from the internet. I found someone asking this very question on the Gmail forums, but there were no answers.

"Suspicious sign in prevented" in gmail account from odd IP address

A couple weeks ago I got an email from google to my gmail account that there was a "Suspicious sign in prevented". I changed my pw and all that, and there've been no more attempts and I'm not overly concerned anymore. However, I am pretty curious. The IP address google reported isn't one that pulls up any info when I look it up, and I'm just wondering if anyone can shed any light on what this might signify and a potential origin -- private proxy of some sort? The IPv4 is 255.0.15.210. IPv6 2600:1003:b011:e219::103 . [more inside]

How to keep google from associating my work account with stupid youtube videos?

I use multiple google accounts, and their multiple sign-in feature is generally very helpful to me. I have a work google domain account, managed by my company, and a personal google account. Lately, when I have gone to youtube or google voice, it often associates to my work account, which I do not want. I'd prefer that my work account is only associated with gmail. Is this possible?

What a drag.

It's possible to drag a message to a label in GMail by grabbing it from the leftmost edge. However, on a hi-res monitor, this can be quite difficult. Is there a hack or greasemonkey script that allows you to drag the message by clicking and dragging anywhere in the Subject rather than just the left edge?

Email address ideas for very common name

I have an absurdly common name and literally every combination of myfirst, last and middle initial are taken. I want to avoid using numbers and try to have a somewhat professional email address. Not for job hunting but in general. Preference is to use Gmail. Also I cant buy my own domain because I don't have a credit card and even if I did, my name is taken in .com and a few others I believe. I was thinking about using a suffix... so firstname.lastname.___@gmail.com Anyone have ideas to fill in the blanks? Thanks!

HELP: google contacts seems to be psychotic!

Google contacts seems to be getting increasingly problematic for me. In some contact records, I have over a dozen random email addresses assigned to a contact (that have no relation at all). In others, the contact email is legitimate, but is now named after some individual I have never ever had any form of contact with, apparently through some google+ functionality (I have not signed up for google+). Aside from ditching this increasingly crappy platform, any advice how it make this work? I cant see hand fixing thousands of contacts....
