It was much simpler then, and did not have so much gunk on it that it took multiple clicks to just check your mail.

Of course, just about every web based email account is covered in ads, and other worthless info.
Truer words have never been said.

no, my problem is that just when I get my computer screen to look just the way I want, then I have to set all of my programs so that they do not override my style and color choices...and I hate the styling on the Microsoft products...sure, I can change the basic colors, but I cannot change the layout or proportions, and I just don't like them. With Firefox, I can put toolbars and such anywhere on the screen I want. (well, almost anywhere) Also, I just never found an e-mail service that I wanted to even see a second time. Yahoo, however, was the first one I tried that I felt as if I could navigate my way around in, so I stick with it, and ignore those 'built ins' whenever I can.

As for the web based ones and their ads... how else am I going to know what is going on in pop culture? I don't watch TV anymore, as a rule.

Yeah, Gmail is not bad at all.

And you can integrate it in to your iGoogle home page as well.

Not if your newest Dvd is five years old...I do not buy more than five a year. I hate to spend money, unless I do not have a choice. (that is because I never have any money, but that's beside the point.)

As for Google, I aviod that as if it was a plague.
