    so i dont' check my email for 2 days, cuz i was out for the weekend...

    i usually get about 200+ emails a day. im on a couple mailing lsits, and i get ton of spam, as you can imagine.

    well, today, i have 778 new messages. lmao. its nuts.

    ohh well, Thunderbird is the shit. Marked 98% of the ones that were garbage as Junk, and through my filters, auto moved them to the trash can :)

    dropped me to 228 to read :p

    I understand that the above address doesn't exist, but you can use thunderbird to access your gmail accounts. <insertusername>@gmail.com set-up gmail for pop access and get any gmail email via thunderbird, no need to log into webmail

    yeah were has Chet dissapeared to ??

    i understand that- but all my mail is addressed to brian@hondaswap.com. i couldn't even begin to change all my stuff to a gmail addy and phase it out. it would take months.

    chet- he bought a dsm (colt w/ 4g63 + 16g) and doesn't hang around honda boards much anymore...
