I understand the concern. One advantage to Gmail is pop retrieval of
your mail to your own computer where there's even more space than 2.7
gigs that Gmail offers. I can keep and archive on my own computer,
and delete all messages from Gmail. Gmail is the only service I know
that offers this capability without charging extra. Even hotmail's
premium service doesn't let you send messages from your computer
unless you have outlook express or their Macintosh equivalent called
Entourage. I used Entourage for one day before trashing it.
There's the plug-in for Mail that allows it to work with Hotmail. I
think it's called "httpmail".
Hotmail offers no rich text formatting for Macintosh users, even with
their premium service!! Gmail not only offers rich text formatting
for Mac users, but I can use Thunderbird to format on my own computer
and send my mail without signing into Gmail. Sean
