In case anyone still needs a GMail invite, I have one to give away. So to make it interesting, starting right now, the first person to post at least 3 legitimate hot deals in either the Online or Offline Hot Deal boards on this forum and then reply to this thread letting us know gets the invite. Previous deals posted do not count. Simple as that. Good luck! :sombrero: :guitarist :fishing:

I posted my willingness to hand out some GMail invites over on ATOT, but I haven't gotten enough requests to be rid of all of them! :) I have two left... PM here with your name, email address, and a quote from an Adam Sandler movie and it's yours. ...plus, I'll edit my post over on ATOT to show them a GottaDeal member got it first. :D

How are you able to give out invites to GMail? I have a link that says invite 3 of your friends, but it doesn't work :curse:

Gmail places a link on the top saying invite up to 5 friends. It is just an activation link basically that gets sent out.

Do you guys even use your GMail accounts? That's why I have my own domain and web hosting (with webmail) :2roller:

I have a link on the left side that says, "Invite 3 Friends To Gmail." Maybe I have to wait till it says 5 for me to invite people? :confused:

People get to invite others all the time, I would just use your 3 now, that way you will have another 5 or 3 later. Im not 100% sure how it works out though.

I use gmail as a backup for all my "real" e-mail accounts from all my domains. Just have copies of all messages forwarded to a gmail account and you have instant backup copies. Works great if you need to retrieve an old e-mail when you don't have access to your regular account.

That is a very good idea. The only problem is not being able to save the outgoing messages too. How could I get around that? If I could save incoming/outgoing messages it woudl definately be of some use to me.

don't know how you'd do that. depends what e-mail client you use. if you could somehow have your gmail address automatically included as a BCC on all your outgoing messages it could work.

I use Outlook Express. Configuring the BCC to be my gmail account is a pretty good idea. Will GMail still sort the messages accordingly?

Unless there are mail rules/filter you can specify you'd have to move the incoming BCC messages manually to your outgoing folder. Still an excellent idea though.

I wonder if you can configure your e-mail client to automatically insert your GMAIL address in the BCC field for ALL outgoing e-mail?

- Can you explain this a little bit more? Still not quite sure how I would set it up.

I can have someone write a hack for adding the gmail address to the BCC tab automatically if you think it would be used.

In GMail, you could have it filter all messages with the From: address being the account you send mail from. You can have them flagged, labeled and archived (but not moved to the Sent Mail folder). So they would be distinguishable from the other messages via a label so you could do a search within GMail for all messages labeled "sent by me" or whatever you name the label.

I tried doing this in plesk 7, however all i can do is have a complete redirect of the account to another email address. Any idea's?

I don't know about Plesk. I know in cPanel that you can create a forwarder from addressA@domain to any other address. If addressA exists as a regular mail account, a copy will be forwarded (and addressA will still get the message). But if addressA doesn't exist as a regular account, the mail will be forwarded and no original will be delivered to the default catch-all address (if a catch-all is specified).

yes, it was simple to do under cpanel. Plesk is pain in my arse.

Which version of Plesk are you using? I have heard very good things about Plesk 7.

Does DirectAdmin work the same way?

Nope. In DA you can't create a forwarder for a username that already has an account set up for it. So you can have mail to a certain username go to an existing account or be forwarded somewhere else, but not both :( If anyone knows a way around it, please let me know.

Site-Helper.com is the DA help site, might have a solution there?
