What I use Gmail For 

Gmail is wonderful. It gives you around 1GB of storage space for no-spam email. It can give you even more.

How I use it:

  • When I get my mail to my laptop, I do not delete it from the server
  • When I get mail on my main machine, I have it setup so that messages are deleted after a month of residing on the server. Yes, Outlook has this option. This gives me more than enough time to grab the messages from the server with my laptop, before they are deleted.
  • I have a message rule on my main machine which forwards all incoming messages to my Gmail account

Why?

I love having all messages stored. And I have everything stored on my main machine. But, since Gmail has 1GB of fast-search-capable storage I prefer browsing through my mail using remote Gmail than my local Outlook. Implicitly I get web access to all my email.

We're probably more that three years away from achieving this on our local machines.

Did you try the Lookout (http://www.lookoutsoft.com/Lookout/) search add-in for Outlook? It works much faster than default Outlook search.

I did. I liked it, but it's still an add-on. :)

This comment is very belated; but if you still have a Gmail invitation I would appreciate it.

Gmail does not support pop3 (http://gmail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=10350&query=pop3&topic=&type=f), so I wonder how do you access that mail from your main machine without using a browser...

Daniel,

I don't. I only use web based front end, whenever necessary.

I have been using it when I have Corrupted dbx and Outlook express wont open. Outlook Express more stable and secure than other programs.

I must admit to being more impressed for Fix outlook express, Inbox repair tool and Dbx file recovery. I've even recommended it to all my friends.

For recover corrupted files try - <a href="http://www.recoverytoolbox.com/repair_outlook_express.html">dbx repair</a>, may extract all messages that should be recovered from the dbx repair file, save all extracted messages to the hard drive as message files in the eml format before a repairing Outlook Express, supports files of the .dbx format for Outlook Express versions 5, 5.5 and 6.
