Email Fun

So, I think I'm going to totally switch over from Google's gmail to Windows Live Mail. I don't like how Outlook and Gmail work together. In fact, they don't work very well at all. I don't like how Outlook and Gmail cannot sync calendars or contacts without 3rd-party software. I also don't like the IMAP integration with gmail. I also hate how you cannot use the "delete" key on your keyboard to actually delete mail. All it does is remove all labels from gmail and puts it in the "all mail" folder. Bleh. If I hit delete, I want it to be placed in a deleted items folder, not archived.

But with Windows Live Mail, all of this is fixed. The delete key works. Everything is synced (email, calendars, contacts). Plus, there is a Blackberry app for Live Mail. I have secured 3 Live mail addresses, each for a different purpose: 1. business/professional use; 2. social/networking/entertainment use; 3. commercial/all other use. For instance, my Livejournal, Evite, Facebook, and Playstation accounts now use my social/networking/entertainment Live Mail address. My next task is to finish up Category #2 and then fix up my Category #1 emails. The last category can wait as I have relegated that to mostly commercial websites where I buy things, such as Amazon, which isn't as important.

It's raining and cold here... BLEH!

i knew you would hate gmail/imap crap
Do you know if Windows Live Mail will allow for some kind of notification if switch to them via another email proggie? Kinda of like when you changed your number?

Hmmm, not sure. You could just send auto-replied from the old address for people who email you there?

That's an option, but then I realized I have so many emails tied into gmail.. I use the web interface anyway, probably just stay where I'm at.
