Issue with HTML e-mail and GMail [14 Jan 2013|10:38am]
simonm223
Good morning all,

I recently started working on an e-blast for work. This is an HTML document. It displays fine on Outlook, Hotmail and Yahoo but there is a line formatting error on GMail which causes an unsightly mis-alignment of the e-mail banner.

Does anybody here have any experience with this? Would it help if I posted the HTML code in question?

Please let me know.

Gmail & Android [24 Feb 2009|08:39am]

I have a T-Mobile G1. I'm having trouble with my Gmail over the past few weeks. Basically, nothing is really coming through to the G1's email. I'm on two FreeCycles lists so I easily get 100+ emails a day from FC alone... Plus Craig's List, LJ, MySpace, Facebook, etc. Almost everything is going to my trash can. I thought that everything from my G1 was supposed to stay on my Gmail webmail when I logged in from a computer, but it's not.

Is this a G1 / T-Mobile issue or a Gmail issue?

You can all disregard this... I don't know why it took over 3 months for this to get posted. I don't even have the G1 anymore.

Is there any way I can buy a username with less than six letters without having to establish my own domain? For example: dogs@gmail.com ... or do you think they will ever allow shorter usernames in the future? I know they worry about the addresses getting spammed and such, but it's kind of irritating.

For the past two day a lot of spam came to my gmail inbox. I have been using spam filter for a couple of years and it worked just fine (all, I mean ALL spam massages would end up in trash and not in the inbox). I wonder what happened? Filter doesn't work anymore? Have you guys seen more spam lately?

Calendar not showing up? [05 Jan 2009|06:20pm]

jenni_goes_grrr
I'm trying to keep my very active family organized, so my husband and I have set up gmail calendars for both of us. On mine I have a sub calendar for both of our children. I've made everything public and invited my husband to view them, but they aren't showing up on his calendar. Mine (the main one) is showing up on his though. What am I missing?

yahoo contacts? [27 Oct 2008|07:44pm]

I'm unable to link a Yahoo (Yahoo Messenger) friend of mine to GChat. When she responds to the invite, she gets a 'bad link' message. Is it entirely impossible to link GChat and YM?

No "display images below" option [22 Aug 2008|07:48pm]

nanini
Hello.
I'm sure this has been asked here before, but i can't find any information about it.

Why aren't my embedded images showing on gmail? The display images below option one would expect isn't there, only the placeholders. It's happening on both IE and Firefox, so it must be a gmail thing.
Also, I've noticed that this only happens when I'm forwarding the e-mail with the message.

Help. Me.

Subject/body notifications [23 May 2008|12:58pm]

bonesbaby33
Is there a way to turn off the dialog box that asks you if you're sure you want to send your message without a subject and/or body? I rarely like to subject my emails, and sometimes I just email myself an attachment to print elsewhere, and therefore don't write a body either. I just wish gmail would stop asking me whether I'm sure I want to send the message.

Random Gmail signatures [08 Jun 2008|10:25am]

fatherbingo
So Gmail has a new random signature feature in the "labs" setting. It pulls in text from an RSS feed and plunks it into your signature line. Kinda neat, but the default feed they're using has nothing but generic quotes from famous people. So I've set up a community to create more interesting ones. randomgmailsigs.

Help, please--I appear to be logged in even when I'm not [30 Apr 2008|04:01pm]

apologyhat
I've  beeen having a problem with gmail for the past two or three weeks. I appear to be logged on, even when I know I'm not.

There's only two computers I check my email on--my home and my work. I know I shut down my home computer when I left this morning, and I didn't check my gmail on my work computer until about 3 pm PST time today, but several of my friends have said that they saw me logged in (with the green dot next to my name) from 11 - 12, and then again at 1 for ten minutes earlier today. A few people have said that when they go to message me,  I log off shortly there after.

When I went to look at my saved chats, I can see several one line long chats from friends of mine from times when I'm confident I wasn't signed on. These are in my regular saved chats area, not emailed to me later.

I've changed my password three times, and this still keeps happening. No other accounts of mine have had this happen to them.

Is it a quirk in the system, or has someone been figuring out my password.

transfer for hotmail [22 Mar 2008|02:50pm]

I'm trying to transfer some of my family from hotmail to gmail.

I did it myself a few months ago. The problem is forwarding hotmail -> gmail. Did something change? I keep getting some sort of error.

Notice of Received Messages [06 Mar 2008|09:06pm]

Hi,

I'm considering signing up for a gmail account and am wondering if it includes a feature that notifies me when my emails have been read by the person I'm sending the message to. MS Outlook offers this feature, which I find very useful, particularly for business purposes.

Many thanks in advance.

i recently set up evolution to download my gmail messages using their new imap feature. it's really slow & laggy on my end. is it just because i have a 393 mb of email, or is the slowness just a symptom of using imap? will this lag disappear after a while - once all of my messages have been fully synced to my client? (i have used evolution about 3 times since setting up the imap access - once even keeping my computer on over night.)

the computer is a thinkpad t60 with 2gb of ram, so it isn't that the computer is slow . . . any thoughts? i'm new to imap. thanks.

Does anyone know if it's possible to create a filter that will remove only one person's e-mails from a conversation? I'm on a mailing list and there's a one trick pony who is driving me up a wall. I only want to remove his e-mails, but the filter I tried not only plonked him, it also plonked any thread/conversation he participated in. This is a less than optimal solution, as there is good information in the other e-mails that I want to keep.

Thanks.

I use a Mac w/ FireFox and have added LinkedIn Companion. And I use GMail. The InfoBox is not showing up (on either my iMac or iBook. It did at first - but I've reinstalled and reloaded and it still is not working. Any ideas?
BTW - I use GMail Manager but InfoBox worked on that earlier also. Thanks for any help.

Is there a way to prevent Gmail from automatically adding contacts to your contact list? [30 Sep 2007|02:57pm]

poorcookie
It's always bothered me: I don't want Gmail adding people to my contact list, just because I emailed them once.

It's especially troublesome now because I created a separate email account for a club I'm creating, and sometimes the emails I send out get bounced back and sometimes I try several versions of emails. I don't want those email addresses added to my contact list. It makes it difficult when I export the contact list (especially since Gmail doesn't let you export only a group...it exports the entire contact list).

Help?

Gmail & Safari [03 Sep 2007|11:38pm]

twigged
Has anyone here had trouble getting Gmail to work with the Safari browser 3.0.3 for Windows? Trying to open Gmail crashes the browser every. single. time. I've tried all the Gmail tips for getting them to work together, including uninstalling my firewall and virus software, and nothing's working...

Morning, all.

My gmail seems to be stuck since last night, forcing me into html mode (no chat! woe) and curiously, won't even let me page down when I'm working in IE, all of which is putting a damper on my style. Since it's happening on both my home and work comps, and in both Firefox and IE, I'm reasonably sure it's nothing on my end. I've done the responsible netizen thing and sent Gmail a nice information-filled beg support request, but I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen, and if they could possibly give a guesstimate on repair or hearing back from support?

Muchas gracias.
