Heh, yeah, I've gotten into email Re: Aw: Re: Aw: wars w/ some friends
from Germany before.

It's true Gmail's threading isn't fullproof, but overall it's decent--
and the service is great.  I think the metaphor of one big pool for
all mail, incoming, outgoing makes a lot of sense in practice -- at
work Outlook's sharp division of mail I've received, mail I've sent
makes no sense. Combined with a top-notch search engine that quickly
goes through your whole archive and an ok spam filter...after using
Gmail for a year I'd give it a strong thumbs up.
