Happy B'day to MY gmail.com!! 

Wow!!!..It had been an year since, I started using- rather migrating all my mails to GMail!!...I dont remember the exact date, when I got the Gmail Invite from Hemanth...but the last mail that I have (still undeleted!!) bears the date as August 29th. So, that becomes the official birthday of my Gmail Id...Here I go, wishing my Gmail a very happy B'day!!...It holds 1110 mails at the last count and had occupied just 168MB(7%) of my 2540 MB storage space!!!..

Without any pomp n fervour, Google had been adding features to it's Gmail Service...Had you checked your Settings of late?

Now, you can select the Email Id you want the mail to be sent from...I mean, if you want your from address to appear as your Yahoo! Id, you can do that...The receiver will receive it from your Yahoo! Id, while you had actually, sent it from your Gmail Id...You can even receive your mails in your Gmail, while the receipient would have replied to your Yahoo! Id...Isn't this great...but then, the other Id should be yours!!....Try looking at your setting tab of the Gmail!! and Happy Gmailing!..This information was not out in anything than some obscure message boards!!(not Slashdot- surprisingly!).

p.s: Thanks Hemanth for the invite! He was then "Nice Guy Hemanth"...True to his name, he had been nice enough to offer me a Gmail Invite...Now, he had morphed into Instant Coffee, but still a Nice Guy only! ;-)

Actually this facility is there in my domain mail account and the best part is i don't need to own that mail id. In short, i can send in your name or anyone's. ;) Well.. this is not something to bash on Google or anything.. just fyi.

Gmail is something i admire and i am still not sure whether to make a full shift to GMail as my yahoo id is kinda very very popular among my relatives and friends for the last 7-8 yrs.

How do you do that?

Chakra - yes, that is difficult. But what I did ensure was that, all the email addresses are the same. i.e. it is xyz@yahoo.com, xyz@gmail.com, etc. So it is much easier making the shift.

Most email providers give you the pop fwding facility (An email sent to an acc is automatically fwded to another acct)..do u mean that ?

@Chakra: Anna!!..Vazhaikla valayaadidaatheenga!!..;-)...You have a valid point here Chakra..it is difficult to make the shift...and I am finding people asking me why I maintain so many mail ids....But to be frank, I maintain them for specific purposes..I dont normally put out all my ids to everyone...so, when I move out, it becoems difficult...but then, anything for GMail!

@Sat:I think I had made a wrong comment!..I realised I can choose to have the reply to any id I wish, but then the sender would know to which Id he is replying to!!..U had a better mind to have the same ids through out!..I didn't and now, I am feeling the pinch!

@Cogito:I dont know about this auto forward!..To my knowledge, only Gmail provides that(for a free a/c)...but I am not talking about that!..I am talking about the facility where,U can choose ur "from" address, while U still mail from ur Gmail id only!
