Hey, gmail rocks, I use it as a test mail account all of the time.  Not
production of course, but for sending test messages there's nothing wrong
with it. ;-)

Could anyone speculate as to why a user on gmail would have the nerve to
bitch about the service?  They are getting what they paid for, after all!

I will agree that some of these features (or lack of them) are annoying,
however Gmail does have the advantage of being accessible from wherever I
am, and being a whole heck of a lot faster than my ISP's Netmail service,
for example.

I haven't yet found the perfect email service/client, though. Maybe I should
post here when I do!
