Windows Mail is dead. Outlook Express is a distant memory. Microsoft’s free Windows 7 email client of choice is now Windows Live Mail, and if you take a closer look at the program that’s probably a very good move.
Live Mail has strong support for working with web mail accounts, for instance; a better contacts system in Windows Live Contacts; a useful RSS reader, quality calendar tool, inline spell checking, and more.
Some interface quirks and other odd design decisions means that getting all this working smoothly can take a while – but it doesn’t have to be that way.
We’ve spent some time discovering setup tricks and shortcuts, Live Mail secrets and some of the best add-on apps around, and with our help you’ll soon have total mastery over every Windows Live Mail feature. More »

The disclosure of a back door allowing bad guys to repeatedly guess Gmail passwords should remind us all to protect our accounts with long and strong character strings.
There’s a straightforward way to protect your online accounts use signin phrases that are easy for you to remember but hard for others to guess.
The latest vulnerability affecting Gmail accounts was recently revealed by security researcher Vicente Aguilera Díaz in a posting on the Full Disclosure security list. (Aguilera previously revealed a Gmail flaw known as session-riding, which Google subsequently fixed, as reported by WS contributing editor Scott Spanbauer)
According to Aguilera’s new security alert, Google allows anyone with a Gmail account to guess another Gmail user’s password 100 times every two hours, or 1,200 times per day. No “captcha” keeps hacker bots from guessing passwords in this way. Worst of all: If a hacker controls, say, 100 Gmail accounts, 120,000 guesses can be made per day. Because Gmail accounts are free, many hackers control far more than 100 accounts, of course. More »

We all know that Google has been quite generous in giving space when it comes to GMail and right now it’s sitting at over 6 Gb and is consistently increasing. On the other hand Google Apps service is limited to 6 Gb of space (the free account, you can always purchase more space if you want to). For me, 6 Gb of space is more than enough but still, I’ve seen many people crib for limited amount of space!
Well here are some of the tips which you can certainly use in order to ensure that you don’t run out of space and you can rather use GMail’s space in case you are running short of space in your Google Apps account.
Here is what you can do :
