Printing Background Images

When you send an e-mail, do you sometimes include stationery or other background images along with it? You know, just to give it a little extra jazz. Or maybe you receive e-mails like that.

Gmail Child Account

I was visiting a friend the other day and his young child was complaining that she wanted an e-mail address. She wanted one to keep in touch with her aunt and uncle, who had told her to e-mail them.

Waxmail

Do you hate writing e-mails? Well, then try recording them instead!

Gmail for Everyone

Friday, February 16th, 2007

Gmail for Everyone

As Google is saying, “it’s a Gmail party and everyone is invited!” Ever since Google introduced the Gmail e-mail program to the public back in 2004, it has been an invitation only service. This meant that you either had to be invited by someone who was already using it or you could sign up using your mobile phone. If you wanted an account, you could give them… Continue reading

Compacting Outlook Express

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

Q:
I use Outlook Express and an annoying little thing started happening recently.
