I’ve finally decided to start using Gmail instead of Hotmail. Instant notification of mail received is nice (through MSN through Trillian), but waiting every 2 minutes for notification instead will have to do… until the plugin for Trillian is updated or I decide to use that Google Desktop thing or whatever.
I am eating a piece of delicious
Gmail notifier or something like that.
there’s a bunch of gmail extentions for firefox. they notify you every 1 mintue of new email and such
I’ve decided to use Trillian – it’s got a very nice collection of plugins, too. Gmail has a POP server, so it’s easiest for me to use a plugin like that.
Thanks, but Trillian’s POP notifier is fine.
On that note, have you checked out Trillian’s Performance Stats plugin? Fucking RAD!
I have a Gmail account and I hardly use it. Pretty much everything goes to Yahoo, or to my UCSC account.
I think that’s mostly because I have so much legacy stuff pointing to those accounts that I don’t feel like making a transition.
Good thing about moving FROM Hotmail, if you’re using the MSN service, is that you’ll be instantly notified if you’ve got any mail. So I can really work from there.
Gmail is so much better than hotmail. Good choice.
