Migrating personal email accounts to Gmail
LifeHacker tends to be a little advanced even for a pretty techy person like me, but this post about importing email into a Gmail account caught my attention. For those who do not have “work” email accounts — like many authors and freelancers — Gmail has several benefits including the ability to set email signatures and out-of-office messages. (In comparison, AOL, for example, doesn’t even include the initial email in a response and without a message trail, you never know what the “Yes, that’s great” response refers to. Personally, it drives me nuts since I then have to look up my original message when I could otherwise be spending my time, say, blogging.) Anyway, if any authors or freelancers with whom you work are thinking about making the jump to Gmail, they will probably want to check out this post.
