when i today logged in to gmail, the new feature link was highlighted with antivirus protection info. The link lead me to [mail.google.com...] and when i clicked on learn more i am redirected to [mail.google.com...] with 404 error.

But its nice to see virus protection to gmail.

I noticed that too.... Looks like the G is finding a way to sneak into host computers and "use" third-party info. I would go through the TOS pretty heavily before using this software.

Does this mean we can finally send executables?

Don't know but [webmasterworld.com...] - thread by hobbs in Professional Webmaster Business Issues forum, where many people raised fair point

* Why should i use @gmail.com when i have my own me@mybusiness.com which was supported with a view of Marketing Guy stating
Personally I ignore 99% of the emails I get if they aren't from the site's domain.

To answer this Google responded with introducing new feature to allow sending emails as if from you@yourdomain.com or any domain. There is a thread on this by universtoday [webmasterworld.com...]

Now today the antivirus protection, i am smelling a full gmail services now i.e. out of beta with fast feature enhancement so you never ever have to use any other email id as gmail built on the idea that you should never have to delete mail and you should always be able to find the message you want.

I wonder what the revenue is like off of the sponsored adsense links from gmail? I wonder how it compares to hotmails PPV (PPI) model?

I don't understand. It is an e-mail virus checker, like Hotmail, Yahoo and other offer. There is no need for Google software on my "host computer".

kartiksh: When you send mail from Gmail with your .com address, it shows up as "yourgmail@gmail.com on behalf of someone@yourdomain.com"... looks really dumb IMHO

"yourgmail@gmail.com on behalf of someone@yourdomain.com"

Mine doesn't do anything like that. The only way you would know I was using a gmail account is if you looked through the headers.

Hey William,

Yeah, it wont show it if you are using some of the webmail clients like Gmail or Yahoo. However when you are using Outlook and other (especially the desktop mail clients), that will definitely show up, unfortunately.

Sharbel,

That's not really a Gmail issue. If you look at the headers they are formed correctly, with gmail identified as the sender and you domain.com address as the "from" and "reply-to". It is unfortunate though that Outlook deems it necessary to construct that message the way it does.

William.

Oh, really? I didnt realize it was Outlook doing that, I thought it was Gmail. Hmm as a matter of a fact, I seem to recall something on Google groups saying it was due to Gmail.. I will try and dig it up, perhaps I read it wrong.

Still cannot send .exe files. It scans zips and rars so you can't use them to get around either.

Makes the whole anti-virus thing rather pointless. Sending wise anyhow.

By the way this thread is highlighted on the frontpage of ww since few days now, but the link [mail.google.com...] is still returning 404 error. Does this mean, G is now more lazy towards gmail ;-)

outlook is reading the sender id
[microsoft.com...]

for me this makes it unusable to send domain mail to outlook users, especialy as i have to confirm the email address, the sender id should be my domian imho.

if you don't like it as well then let google know
