    I switched once they added POP/SMTP. Fast and always reliable.

    gmailfs for Linux. I have no need for it though :dunno:

    The only issue I have with it right now is that I have it setup with multiple email addresses (since my email addresses are all forwarding to it), but it doesn't automatically reply to an email from the address to which the original message was sent. So, if someone emails me at [email protected] (for example), and my default email address is [email protected], by default it'll compose a reply from [email protected] when it really should come from [email protected]. I can change it by selecting whichever one from the drop-down, but it'd be nice if it did it automatically.

    I like gmail because if I don't use it after 6 months, it's still there :o

    I send all my 'I could potentially get spam' and registration stuff there, but my box is pretty damn spam-free, I love it!

    Yep, they do a waaaaaaaay better spam filtering job than my ISP was doing. I turned off my ISP's email filter, with it forwarding to my GMail and I haven't seen spam in my inbox yet. The university filter is much better (because they let me set it up myself - fucking Telus won't even let me adjust any settings), but I've turned it off too and GMail does a fine job.
