This letter is meant to inform you that I have officially changed my email address to hopeseekr —at— xmule.ws. I finally found the solution to my GMail addiction [1]: After about a year of looking for alternatives, I found www.webmail.us, which has a *much* nicer user interface and ::gasp:: far more functionality (including integrated RSS, calendar, file trading, much more advanced search, ability to embed pics, email archiving in zip format, notepad, ability to check external mail accounts, etc, etc, etc). It also supports the GMail 'conversation' style as well as nested and traditional email organization methods.

The only downside is that they require you to purchase 5 accounts at $120 a year (for 1 Gig/account), but it works for any domain that you own (and unlimited domains, too). Fortunately, a stripped down v can be had at http://www.webmail.us/lite You can also view a live demo of the full account at http://admin.webmail.us/oneclick—demo/quickdemo.asp.
