    Just when I am finishing a letter to a friend.. WHAM the service stops responding, and I couldn't send the message!

    Oh well. Hopefully they fix it soon!

    I transitioned all my e-mail addresses to gmail and let all my friends know in the fall of 2005. Some friends of mine moved about an hour away and wanted my wife and I to visit the house they bought. I asked them to e-mail me the directions to my new gmail account. This was on Friday morning. I got the e-mail on Monday morning. Needless to say I just called for directions, but ever since then I haven't used my gmail account.

    I never have issues with GMail either ... maybe they just don't like you?

    GMail

    I must admit, I have found the GMail system very very good. I have had no issues with it at all. I use Mail.app with it daily and have been very happy with the solution. Spam filter is second to none.

    Perhaps try creating a new address?

    What gave you the idea that Hotmail was any more reliable than gmail?

    and same here. Gmail is amazing. saying your switch to hotmail must be a joke. i have never had problems with gmail. guess what cry babies? sometimes servers have problems. sometimes their down for a few minutes.

    It will be OK i promise.

    Hotmail blows. The web interface is clunky.

    I use gmail now with Mail.app. No problems on my side.

    when it works, it's great. however when it decides to take a crap, it's SUCH a pain and always at the worst possible times. :mad: (like now) :rolleyes:

    how long do they need to beta test it? god, sort it out and get on with it. wankers.

    How is it Google's fault that your friends didn't send you that email early enough? :D
