OY! - One of the "substitute people" — LiveJournal
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
If anyone has sent me a mail last night or today or replied to anything on my lij, potc_challenge or vigorli_stills the webhosting site I use got hacked. I will not be able to retrieve any mail that was sent after midnight or any time today--it's gone. I'm working rapidly now to try and upload things elsewhere. So please change my address to Araestel at gmail dot com and I hope to get caught up on things asap.

EDIT: I need some G-Mail help. And thanks to all this shit, I'm missing my damned basketball game.


I see now when I log into G-mail, if the subject line is the same, I get all mails as *one*. So all the first seven of the replies to this came up as one mail from pokecharm. This is extremely irritating to me. And they're showing up in an odd order, the original at the bottom and not the top. AARRGH!!! Does anyone know if I can change any of this so that each mail comes in separately and change from ascending to descending?

God, why can't shit just be fucking easy????

When you click on the 'one' email, it expands to show you the senders of the other emails. And it comes in very handy when you have 20 entries in an icontest and they all get stacked into one post instead of 20+. The only time that changes is if someone changes the subject line. It does take a little bit of getting used to, but I prefer gmail over yahoo any day. You also have tags in gmail, so you can create tag subjects for whatever you like, label your mail as it comes in, and go back to it later.

Roommie likes this feature too. Personally, I hate it. When I have two communities to run, the page just goes on and on and on and I can't get of one e-mail and address certain ones later. So it confuses the hell outta me.

Roommie set it up so I can POP3 it, but I'm trying really hard to get used to web based mail.

As tularia, I prefer the way gmail sorts mails nowadays. It does take some getting used to at the beginning.
Gmail sorts all mails together that belong together; so all conversations via email you're having with someone (meaning: you reply back and forth) are grouped together. If you're getting comment notification from LJ, all comments made to the same posts will be grouped together because they come from the same sender (lj_notify@livejournal.com) and have the same subject (Reply to your post...); if they're comments to a comment, they go in another 'conversation' because the subject LJ sends them with is (Reply to your comment...). You can see how many emails there are in each 'conversation' by the number in brackets next to the 'sender'. If a conversation has unread emails, it shows by it being bolded, clicking on such a 'conversation' will lead you to the first email you've not yet read.
My emails are grouped in descending order though, with all read mails (except the very last one) being folded together. Clicking on expand will open them all though, and the first email will then be at the top, the last at the bottom.
As far as I know, there's no way to configure gmail to not group mails together. You can though use gmail with a POP client, like Outlook or Thunderbird, and as they don't use the grouping, you'll see your emails like you're used to seeing them.

So I've found. It seems everyone but me likes this. I personally *hate* having 30 replies in one mail. With running communities, it gets a little hairy with the comments and I dislike I can't delete one while I search for an answer to another. I guess that's the OCD in me.

I'm trying very hard to get used to web based mail, but right now, it's a bitch and I'm throwing a tant. LOL

Yikes! :hugs: You feeling better, btw? I think you said you were feeling a bit under the weather. ♥

Good luck with Gmail. I use it but I still don't understand how to organise things. It's kind of a pain.
araestel From: araestel Date: March 16th, 2008 05:24 am (UTC) (Link)
I am way better than I was but this cough and lack of sleep is getting to me. At least I don't look like Rudolph with a red nose anymore. I learned years ago to use chapstick on my nose to keep it from drying. LOL Hey--it works like a charm! And as many times as I've been sick in my life, I have a ton of tricks to lessen issues. *hugs*

I just don't like getting one e-mail with 20 relies in it from the comms. I'd rather have one separate one that I can deal with and move on. This style just confuses the hell outta me, but I'm trying to get used to it. I also hate I just can't be "Ara". Dammit.

Gmail: No, but you can POP it, into Outlook Express, so each one comes in as a separate email, as far as I know. I only did that once or twice, and don't really remember what it did.

Gmail is annoying.

To have your Gmail go into your inbox in Outlook Express, you follow the directions here:


You can also use IMAP (which can be used with your Blackberry):


I'm really sorry about all this.
