It's probably a furphy, but    I wonder if Google really think that web 
mail is the best way to go. It is rumoured that ALL staff use the web 
interface - no choice in the matter. And woe betide the rest of us if we 
need to sort out wrongly filtered spam - as several of my local church 
people have been TRYING to do for 3 weeks now.

I just can't hack google web mail.    There may be one that works though.
