Howdy everyone, I'm looking for a bit of practical advice on email. I have some specific needs and wants and am looking for an ideal solution. - Firstly, I need lot's of space. I get's lots of emails with Word and image attachements. - Secondly, I'd like a way that I can have a few different email accounts all coming to the same place. Ideally I would like if each account directed to Mail, for instance, but nonetheless went into separate folders, so for example, I could check my 'pleasure' mail but not my work mail if I wanted. - I really like Gmail. The 'conversation' management system would be very useful to me I feel, as I get large quantities of mail and would find it useful to be bale to track back through conversations easily. - Then again I always like the .mac system of being able setup extra addresses and then delete them if they are a source of spam. I also like having a few different email addresses for different uses. So I feel at the moment as if I'm between .Mac and GMail. I like the way GMail organises mail, but I also like .Mac for the reasons outlined above, and for the storage space provided. So I'm looking for some general advice on how I could best manage my mail, and have a couple of specific questions... 1. Any thoughts on which email account is better, .Mac or Gmail? This is my crux question really. I know one is free and one isn't, but if .Mac is better I don't mind paying. 2. What's the advantage of using Apple's Mail program? 3. Are the features of the GMail accoount (i.e conversations) maintained in Mail? 4. Any other email services I should look at apart from these? Sorry for babbling so much. Any help is greatly appreciated.
