I accidentally (long story) deleted all my Google contacts. They are all just sitting there in my Sent and All Mail folders, however. Is there an easy way to re-add them to My Contacts in Gmail. Or do I have to just patiently email everyone over time?

[Gmail Filter] I have email being forwarded by a domain to a Gmail address. I set up an auto-reply to certain emails by using a Gmail filter (filtering to:email@example.com) and a canned response. However, it sends the canned response to the domain instead of the original sender. How can I get it to send the reply to the original sender?

What's the best alternative to gmail?
I ask for several reasons, not just that today there's another massive fault with gmail's system. I've used and dislike both Yahoo and Hotmail. I've been a gmail user since forever and have liked it until recently.
Time has come to search for alternatives. What's out there?

How do I sync two IMAP folders? I currently use Gmail for all my e-mail (personal & work). I currently have about 4,000+ messages archived in Gmail and I'll continue to add 300-500 per month.
I also have a IMAP account with my webhost and I was wondering if there was any type of application or script that would connect to the Gmail IMAP servers and backup/sync all of my mail so I know that in addition to being in Gmail's cloud....it is also on my IMAP server in case something happens.

I'm a member of hundreds of Facebook groups, which I enjoy except for the fact that their owners sometimes send me a direct email. The result is dozens of direct emails that I can't seem to find a setting inside Facebook to block. So then I move to my Gmail filters. Is there a way to filter out the Facebook group mails using Gmail filters? The identifying feature of mails from groups is that their subject header contains quote marks, so the sender is always Facebook and the subject header is always: "Group Name" sent you a message on Facebook. My question is: how do I teach Gmail to distinguish between these mails and mails from my actual friends, which don't have the quote marks around them?

After reading this
AskMe, I decided to use Mac's Mail program to keep copies of my messages on my gmail account on my computer. However, I wanted to use the "IMAP" option to keep copies of all my mail both on the web, in gmail, and on my computer, in Mac Mail. Instead, something else happened and now I'm in trouble.

In my Gmail sidebar contacts list, a contact shows up with a greyed-out "Invited" next to their name. Does this mean that I have invited them to chat, or that they have invited me to chat? I still have the "invite to chat" option available, and I can't remember if I did send a chat invite. Thanks in advance, hivemind.
