Getting organized in the new year....
After much deliberation, I'm switching emails, again. ;o)
Here's where I hang out now: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you've had trouble contacting me, please know it is not because I don't read or reply to my email. (I really love every email message I receive & I spend many happy hours answering them in a week. I get such a kick out of chatting with you all.) Unfortunately, I'm sure I've missed out on some great chats, because I just learned that the gmail account I have had is pure evil.
but I can't help detesting it!
The "heart of gmail"--the conversation thread function--gathers emails with the same heading together, which would be great if it worked as intended and new replies in those emails showed up as new--where you could see them and read them--BUT it doesn't work! Unfortunately, it is not an optional function of gmail--there's no way to shut it off.
Many many people have voiced dissatisfaction with gmails conversation thread function & now I know why! I've recently discovered that new replies to emails from people (and even some altogether new emails) end up buried pages and pages back in my inbox, and since I can get a couple hundreds of emails in a day--many of them spam--things get crowded. Hence, I never end up seeing many off my new emails. You can imagine the troubles this causes in communication & keeping organized...
I have high hopes that gmx is a good email service...
I aim to be more easily reached & better organized now!
Hope to hear from you! ;o)
