Gmail and Word Question: just recently, perhaps since the new look Gmail, sometimes when I compose a long email in Word, then copy and paste the text into an email reply, it looks fine, then I hit Send, and it ends up being sent without the proper line breaks. Specifically, the blank line between paragraphs (two paragraph marks from Word) become just one new line, and the email looks like a huge wall of text. There didn't seem to be any way for me to know that this would happen, as it looked fine when pasted into the reply box before I hit send. Also, if I compose a new message and post the text, it seems to go through fine; this only happens with reply. Is there an easy fix that I can do every time to stop this from happening? Can anyone explain this? Thanks.

Recently spam mail from (what appears to be) the same source keeps getting through my Gmail account. I've never had a problem with this in the past, and the current crop all seems to be roughly formatted in the same way. I've been marking everything I notice as it comes through, but is there anything else I can do? [more inside]

Can I get my daughter's Google email account back? She has had her full name as her gmail address since she was a toddler (her uncle picked up her full name early on.) They offered g+ to her and she attempted to sign up. Because she was honest about her age (under 13) they froze her account! What complications will there be if I use my credit card to verify the account? (one of three options to unfreeze.)

I'm on Mac OS X, Chrome, Gmail. How do I get MS Word and Excel to play nice with Gmail? Right now, when I go into Word or Excel and click File/Send To/Mail Recipient (as Attachment)
, a Mac Mail window opens up. Same thing if I happen to click an email link in a Word or Excel doc. I've installed Gmail Notifier, which opens a Gmail window for mailto: links on web pages, but doesn't help with Word or Excel. (In Mail, I've gone into Preferences/Default Email Reader
and selected Gmail Notifier (1.10.7) but this makes no diff.)
So: how do I make Gmail the default email client for Microsoft Office "send to" and "mail to"?

I like to use the Favorites bar in IE8 and IE9 for frequently accessed web sites, such as iGoogle, Google Mail, Google Reader, and (of course) Ask Metafilter. I like the favicons that appear there, but, for some reason, the Gmail favicon always appears as the generic, IE website icon. See image link here.
I've tried everything I can think of to make it look "nice" like the others, but it always looks like this, even on other computers with the Favorites linked through Xmarks. Why is this and can anyone offer a solution? Thanks!

rolled out some major redesigns recently. In fact they look quite similar to me; a bunch of random floating lists and boxes, with a dark bar at the top. What's the philosophy beside the aesthetic choices? I realize that there are technical improvements going on behind the scenes and that taste is subjective. Still, there must be some reason Google and Facebook would make major cosmetic changes. Hey designers, what's the logic?

How can I make sure Mailto links in Chrome (for Mac) open in Gmail and not my default mail client (Mail)? I've seen the official 'Send from Gmail' extension in the Chrome Webstore, but surely Chrome should support Gmail natively without the need for an extension?

Gmail filter. When I use the Y shortcut to archive a message I have scrolled down to read, Gmail has started opening the next message similarly scrolled down. This means I have to scroll back up to see the beginning of the message.
Please hope me.
Occurs in FF4.01 and IE8. Happens for both my personal and work Gmail.

After three great years my Google Calendar has simply stopped sending me email notifications. I have tried the help page here
and many unhelpful forum posts here
. This seems to be a prevalent problem. I wish I could switch to something else but Gmail is what I use heart and soul for work. Any others solved this problem? I am all ears. Thanks for your time.

How does the SMS feature in Gmail work? I know there's some kind of base of phone numbers used for it, but I assume those numbers send out thousands of texts per day; how does a reply end up at my account, instead of someone else's? If someone replies to one of my SMS messages sent from Gmail in a month, will the reply still be connected to me?
