Your Questions About Google Mail

Charles asks…

If i send a picture by email the recipient just gets a blank box. What do I need to do to be able to send pic?

I am using Firefox and Google mail. Every picture I send is received as a blank box with a bit of gobbleygook at the top. I know the problem must be at my end so can anyone tell me what I need to do to resolve this. Hope some one can help and many thanks in advance.

Administrator answers:

I send pictures a dozen times a day, but instead of Google Mail, I use Yahoo. If you can’t get something to work, switch around and find something that does.

I have about 4 e-mail addresses with yahoo, and 1 with yahoo/ SBC. How can I get all the mail to go to one add?

I have 3 e-mail address with yahoo,and 1 sbc/yahoo, and 3 with google mail. How can I get all the mail go to 1 address? Or can I sign in to all of my e-mail boxes in differnt tabs on the same computer?

Administrator answers:

It’s a tricky, complicated thing to do with that many accounts. Yahoo only has IMAP privileges, which means you can receive all mail in one mailbox on a desktop program like Windows Live or Thunderbird (Firefox) but not send … Gmail does have POP privileges though. For the Yahoo accounts, you would have to either pay ~$20 per year for Yahoo Plus or switch your accounts to a country that does offer free POP privileges, such as Asia, UK, Germany (DE)

Then you would need to set up a Windows Live account or Thunderbird to download all mail from these accounts into one location. Gmail makes it easy, Yahoo is not helpful for this …

The only other way to have several Yahoo accounts open at once is to open each one in a separate browser in a separate window, and keep switching back and forth from one to the other …

Administrator answers:

I like hotmail and yahoo mail. I have to admit I haven’t tried Goolgle Mail. I use my blackberry all the time and those are the two I am used to. I guess it depends on what you like. Try them/

How do I add calendars to google mail but keep them hidden?

Basically I am PA to a director, he has asked me to add in other assistant directors to my calendar, last time I done this they was all showing in the calendar all at once. Is there a way where I can add in their calendar to mine but keep them hidden and only look at them once I have clicked on their name for example? I am new to google mail and could use some helpful tips!

Administrator answers:

Yes, if you look at the list of calendars in the sidebar, under ‘My calendars’ you should see the list of all the calendars you have joined. If you click one of the names, the calendar colour will turn to white, and it will temporarily be hidden from you. If you then click again, it will appear once more.

How to contact Google Mail about a Google Mail security incident?

Hello

I had a problem logging into my Google Mail account, and to get in I was told that I need to change my password, which I did.
When I was in the process of this, I was told that this was because Google systems had detected a violation of security, but there is no report on the nature of the violation.
I do not know the nature of the violation myself, because I have never allowed my ‘log in’ data to get accessed by other people, and I do not know of how else a security violation could have taken place.

I decided that I need to contact Google to find that out, so that their customer service personnel can help me to know what the security violated was that Google systems detected.
To do this, I went to http://www.google.com/intl/en/contact/; but I cannot understand which part of this page is the appropriate part to start navigating, to get to the contact address that I need for this situation; and from that I in-turn need to know where to go beyond that stage (it basically looks like I have to navigate through a link-maze).

Can you let me know what I need to do?

“I do not know the nature of the violation myself, because I have never allowed my ‘log in’ data to get accessed by other people, and I do not know of how else a security violation could have taken place.”

Either by you having a “Easy” password and it was Brute Forced Hacked or you might consider your computer itself has been compromised. Only way to tell the later part of that statement is run some scans. If your antivirus software detects nothing, it’s time for second opinion scanners

” I had a problem logging into my Google Mail account, and to get in I was told that I need to change my password, which I did.”
Told by whom ???? I hope not by some random email you got

Donna asks…

Why am I getting this error message when trying to open Yahoo mail? LaunchTAE14?

I cannot open my yahoo account and I get this error: LaunchTAE14. This has been a problem all day, at least 6 or 7 hours. Please resolved as soon as possible–there are important messages I need to retrieve. I would hate for this to be a Blackberry-style issue that lasts for days. Do you know what happened after that problem? Many people jumped ship and went with another device. Google mail is looking really good right now.

Administrator answers:

Hundreds of users have reported this error. You can’t fix it. Yahoo is working on the site.

What is better Google Mail, Yahoo Mail, or Hotmail? Also, which is best for mobile?

Administrator answers:

I prefer Google, verse Yahoo, or Hotmail. It seems like G-Mail is more secured and reliable. From my experiece Yahoo Mail, I recieve too many spam and fraud coming into my email account. Yahoo Mail Server sometimes crashes alot.
