Word and Gmail?

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.

How to get my daughter's gmail account back?

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.)

All Gmail All the Time, please

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"?

Why does the Gamil favicon on my IE Favorites bar always appear so blah?

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!

Yes, yes I'm not the customer I'm the product

Google, Gmail and Facebook 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?

Gmail message displaying halfway down.

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.
