January 14, 2010, at 01:10 PM by OtherMichael - alternate sent-from address notes
Added lines 44-51:


!! Use alternate sent-from address to help sort replies
[@gmail >> Settings >> accounts and import >> Send mail as >> send mail from another address@]

Set it up with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-mail_address#Common_local-part_semantics|the plus-tag]] -- eg, [@xraysmalevich@]'''[@+freelance@]'''[@@gmail.com@]

This means that replies can be easily filtered based on ''your'' target address, not ''their'' source address.

Added lines 18-21:

>>dev2<<Gmail does not support rich full-text search -- the indexer used is very limited. Among other things no synonyms, word stems, or subwords are indexed.

September 09, 2009, at 09:49 AM by OtherMichael - tasks and calendar first impressions.
Added lines 11-21:

!! Tasks
Been working with it -- add email as task, archive it out of the inbox, take care of it via task completion.

Task annoyances: done tasks stay on the list -- which is good up to a point. But I'd like to remove them to a "done" list. Guess I'll just have to create such a thing.

Also, ceasing editing of a task is not intuitive -- "back to list". And creating a new task? If you hit ENTER you get a new task... aaargh.


!! Calendar
Hrm. just started using this. via gmail, anyway. I had used it in the waaaaaay past. two years ago?
