Re: Google Mail for dummies!

Walter Ramage

Hi. Well, I did say I need help for dummies and now I'm confused because I
don't know what you mean by "Just put it in Outlook or the Apple mail
client." Just to add to the confusion a new development has occurred. This
new email list was created last Saturday. The owner subd me at his end but
I got no mail, and of course, couldn't send mail. He then subd me with my
Gmail address and I was able to get mail and send mail that way, and I have
to go to Gmail to access any mail. I'm not an experienced Gmail user, not
yet anyway. He sent me the posting address and via my outlook 2007 client I
sent a test message to see what kind of response I'd get from the server but
there was nothing at all. I went back to Gmail around 40 minutes later to
explain what my ISP had to say about the situation (they had nothing to say
because they are not blocking anything and there is no reason they say why
I'm having this trouble) and I found that test message was there. So I
tried again from Outlook and that message got to the list but I didn't get a
copy in outlook. I did in Gmail. So I don't really understand why 1 I can
post via outlook and it seems to get there via Gmail but 2. mail posted by
others appear in Gmail but isn't appearing in my outlook in box. Talk about
confused, a night's sleep hasn't made things any clearer. Walter.

I'm kinda confused, so forgive me why not just put it into outlook, or the
apple mail client?

Hi folks. OK, I'll try and keep this simple. I've joined a new
sharing list but I couldn't sub with my current ISP, they must see it as
spam or something. However when I got an iPhone and in order to use Google
Maps, I had to create a Google account and by default, I have a Google Mail
address and I have been subd using that address. The problem I have is when
I got the Google mail account, I never intended using Google mail but it
seems now I have no choice. Therefore, can anybody help me with using
Google Mail. It has been said to me it is dead simple but I've yet to
discover that. I don't know how to reply to a mail, I don't know how to
delete an email, I've no clue how to get to my drafts folder etc. It is a
lot easier to use the iPhone but much of the stuff I'll need to do is via
the computer. I use Win7 and Jaws16, or 15, I have both on the PC. Help
now and in the future will be appreciated. Walter.
