This morning I checked my gmail account and everything non-spam is gone. Good thing I don't use gmail for important email, yet. I guess you get what you pay for.
BTW, I still have one invite left, if you want it.
A couple of notes on gmail, if you want to use it:
Update: I digged around my gmail account, and I all my "real" email messages were not lost. Somehow, they all ended up in my Spam box. Maybe, I put them there myself by mistake. So, gmail is NOT lost.
- The SPAM filter is good, but, I still get SPAM mail in my inbox. I think it could be better - On a side note: I've had around 8,000 messages in my spam box, at some point or another.
- 2. I lost some of my email - Perhaps, a fluke.
- Depending on the time of day, you get a non-service message - This is understandable, as they are are still in beta.
- If you are a 'vi' user, you'll like the keyboard shortcuts - Very intuitive.
I think it was pretty unlikely that gmail would of "lost" your email. As the pragmatic programmers say.. "when you see hoofprints think horses not zebras".
