My friend Seth Goldstein asked me at breakfast last week if I had signed up for Gmail. Seth and a few other friends have invited me to join Gmail but I haven’t done it.

I told Seth that I have a Yahoo! and an AOL email account and don’t use either of them so I wasn’t in a hurry to add another webmail account that I don’t use.

He then said something interesting. He forwards all his mail to Gmail. Whenever he wants to find something, he just goes to Gmail and searches for it. It’s fast, its easy, and its all there.

Hmm. Looks like I’m going to get a Gmail account now and give that a try. I am sick and tired of the terrible search in Outlook. I’ll have to use Outlook when I’m offline, but when I’m online, I’ll give Gmail a shot.
