    Hey folks,

    I've got two quick questions regarding Gmail and Windows mail. I've spent a lot of time using Gmail and have gotten use to the interface and what not. I recently decided to try Windows Mail (the program) and set it up with my Gmail account through POP. It connected and downloaded every single email that I've written over the past year (all 3,000) including all of my 'conversation' emails from my wife (we basically chat through Gmail). I had over fifteen different folders they were stored in, so I've now I've got 3,000 unorganized 'unopened' emails sitting there.

    My question is this: If I went through and organized all of this stuff, would there be any point? Is Windows Mail any good, does it do anything the Gmail interface doesn't?

    Also, is there any way that any future emails that I put into Gmail folders (within Gmail, at work), can be automatically put into the correct corresponding folder in Windows Mail?

    Thanks in advance,

    Josh Hicks
