i just created my new gmail-account – “a google approach to email”. gmail is an experiment in a new kind of webmail, built on the idea that you should never have to delete mail and you should always be able to find the message you want.
don’t lose time by managing a lot of mailfolders, but just search to find the exact message you want, no matter when it was sent or received. they provide you one gigabyte of free storage so you’ll never need to delete a message and all messages are kept in context, so each message is grouped with all its replies and displayed as a conversation.
at this time it is a beta-phase, testing the system by invited users. if you want to get some more information about this webmail-approach, just check the learn more page or the help center and i will post some more experiences with this service in the near future.
