    I actually thought Gmail had this already. I thought all email services did, so now that I find out that they're just introducing it now, it isn't really THAT exciting.

    Well, you apparently find pooh exciting, so I'll take your opinion with a grain of salt. ;)

    I use my Gmail account quite a bit nowadays, so this is good news for me. Sending an email worm to friends and family is not a good holiday gift idea.

    It sucks that you can't turn it off OR send .exe files...

    My "Gmail notifier" has been acting up lately, not wanting to bring me to my inbox, saying I'm not connected to the internet, etc.
    Could this be related? :confused:
