The best search engine on the planet now has the best web-based email on the planet. Here's how to get more out of it.
If you're looking for a free, web-based email service, the best one, hands down, is Gmail. It offers more storage than any of the others (as of this writing, a whopping 1GB's worth), lets you search through your mail using all of Google's searching syntax, lets you use your normal email software to receive mail via POP3...the list could go on. Suffice it to say, it's the one to use.
Because there's so much to Gmail, you might not know all of its features, or how to get the most out of it. In this hack, you'll learn how to import contacts from your existing email software into Gmail, how to use your normal email software to receive Gmail, and how to use Gmail as a virtual drive so that you can use the service as if it were an extension of your hard drive.
