    I'm a Gmail - er as well. For all the reasons that Casey posted above. I just set my dad's new email up in gmail so he can chat with me and my sis when we are on if he wants. :)

    The labeling is the best feature!

      I'm going to get a g-mail account too!! I had no idea it was so great!! Thanks ladies!! (and heather for asking the question!)
      Only problem now is that I will have 3 email accounts!! I have hotmail for my everyday, yahoo for my junk (if I sign up for anything), and now the gmail! As if I need an excuse to spend more time on the internet!! LOL

              I love gmail too! I know there is a way to forward your email that goes to your old email address to your new one - I set it up a long time ago. That way you don't have to have 5 different emails but you are still getting all your mail! Wonder if I can figure out how to do it again...........

                Jeez, I have so many emails that I can't keep up with them...

                1 hotmail from when I was a teenager, it's mostly junk now
                1 hotmail with my new name
                1 yahoo with my old name
                1 yahoo with my new name
                1 gmail (since yesterday!) with my new name
                1 hotmail that I created for wedding stuff only
                1 work account - I use this for mostly everything

                And that's all I can remember for now!

                  To forward your mail from other e-mail addresses, all you have to do is go to Settings at the top right of your gmail, then click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP. This is where you type in your other e-mail addresses... You can also set up folders from them to be put in directly... So you can have your personal, orders, old, new, work, whatever folders and all your e-mail in one spot... Genius!
