Gmail is a great.
Use it with an approach like GTD - and you'll be the champion of e-mail.
The productivity gains of simply using the keyboard shortcuts is huge.
The possibility to place multiple tags and treat those tags as folder is empowering.
So why do some outlook users complain when they get e-mail from gmail users?
Common complaints are:
- not getting full headers in the reply (the From, To, CC, Sent. Subject).
this gives an idea of the history of the conversation, who it was sent to, who was on CC, etc.
- the ">>" comments in the e-mail
unusable in a corporate environment where many people get CC'd and many iterations to close the thread.
