I share a gmail account with someone. I read the messages on Mac's Mail program, she reads them in Gmail.
I would like to be able to read them in my program and have them remain marked as unread in Gmail. Are there any plugins you fine folks can think of to help us out?

I have two separate Google Apps for your Domain (paid) accounts. In GMail, on only one there is this really distracting "tips" line of text under the inbox that changes every minute or so. It says things like "Add a personalized signature to all your outgoing messages" or "Google Checkout: Sign up for faster and safer shopping." It is right over the inbox use percentage in bold green and since it flashes when it changes it makes my monkey brain think I have a new mail and I look over at it. How do I get rid of it? It is not on the other one so there must be a way.

I hate having mailing list emails in my inbox (aka my to-do list), though they do contain information I want to know. Is there a way to have them "delivered" to my RSS reader (my means of staying updated) instead? Is gmail the best way to do this?

In regular Gmail, my friends' chat statuses show up as red, green, or greyed out. I know that if they're greyed out it might be because they're not signed in or because they've gone invisible. In Gchat on the iPhone/iPod Touch, there's a little more variation in how their statuses appear (not on the list at all, greyed out without profile pic, greyed out with profile pic) and I'm looking to understand whether those variations tell me if they're there but "invisible" vs "signed out."

Gmail security: Someone keeps trying to recover, or change, the password for my gmail account. I'd previously set my gmail recovery option to send me an SMS, and I'm getting a lot of SMSes saying, "Your Google Account recovery code is: ... If you did not request this code, you can safely ignore this message". I've already changed my secret question to be really obscure, but what else should I do to protect my account? Every couple of weeks, I get bombarded with SMSes because someone is trying to access my account. Can I temporarily disable the recovery option? I'm just worried that someone might guess the answer to my secret question by brute force or some other means.

A friend of mine recently had his g-mail account broken into. Someone got in an started sending out bcc e-mails to all the contacts saying he had been mugged in a foreign land and needed cash. The conversation was clearly 419
language and clearly not my friend, so there was no damage. Is there anything that can be done to recover the g-mail address? Any way to contact Google about it and make the case? Obviously just creating a new g-mail address and starting over is the obvious answer, but I am wondering if there is a process for recovering a g-mail identity that's demonstrably "yours".

Gmail was hacked, sending an email to hundreds of contacts. This means that gmail has blocked me from sending emails to people. From my googling it seems to be 24-48 hours which would be insanely inconvenient. I changed my password and everything, anything I can do but wait it out?

YANMTS (you are not my tech support): When I type an email or reply to an email in gmail, it is stored in the auto-complete for the To: field.

Asking for a friend: Once every few months, my friend needs to send a mass email to a bunch of folks who have emailed her. She uses Gmail. Because she has never emailed these people before, they do not "pop up" automagically as contacts when she types their name, and there are far too many to make this a practical solution anyway. Any ideas? [more inside]

I want to send an email to several hundred school principals and am wondering if it is likely to be spam-filtered, given the amount of recipients. The content of the email is a clarification of some points that appeared in an educational journal (it is not spam of any kind). Would putting the addresses in the BCC box make any difference (other than hiding all the other recipients)? I'm using gmail, but Eudora is an option (although I have never used it before).
