Well, I have used gmail for 15 years and now solely, because other
providers have not offered comparable features (free to use, huge storage
size, thread view, two step sign in for travelling, filters & labels
[example in practice multiple inboxes], actually working spell checker),
but maybe they do now, I don't know. This is the only issue I have had with
it and only in this mail list. That being said, I would rather use open
source version of gmail.
