* Why should i use @gmail.com when i have my own firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.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 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.
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".
When you send mail from Gmail with your .com address, it shows up as "firstname.lastname@example.org on behalf of email@example.com"... looks really dumb IMHO
outlook is reading the sender id
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
