LGLFGS: : only ~60% complete.

  1. LGLFJP: won’t but in some cases it’s appropriate, as to test email forwarding (privately receiving & sending from another email address) which Gmail otherwise fully supports

    1. LGLFW9: Quoting an earlier note:
    2. LGL1GY: Per my guess (I recall Dreamhost warns of this), GS[test email forwarding to gmail] finds quick http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=82454 which says “To test forwarding addresses or mailing lists, use a different email address to send your message.”
      1. LGL0JR: I prepare to post the comment, but don’t (will publish it: …):
      2. LGL1UC: This page suggests the workaround “To test forwarding addresses or mailing lists, use a different email address to send your message.”.
        1. LGL1US: This workaround I don’t like, for two reasons:
          1. LGL1T5: another email account to send from may not be handy; gmail is supposed to be a universal account, but it can’t do simple testing.
          2. LGL1TJ: for an email account which one does have access to, sending a test message from there then links both accounts to each other (suggests some relation in order for 1 to be used for testing) and if the accounts represent separate personas of one person, this test email between them puts that privacy at risk (if one account'[s] security was compromised, the other would be linked and so perhaps compromised as well), all over a mere test message.
        2. LGL1TZ: Better solutions:
          1. LGL1WE: Be able to temporarily turn off this feature.[ Google, take note!]
          2. LGL1XG: Send a test email from a public source which is trusted (so won’t spam your email address), ideally where one could add a note as a test or where it would give a serial #.
            1. LGL1I8: test email client: http://email-standards.org/blog/entry/want-to-test-your-own-email-client/
              1. LGL2QE: I found this via GS[email test message] finds
              2. LGL2QJ: It sends out an elaborate test message; it doesn’t look like it will spam you. It doesn’t allow any message nor give any serial #.
            2. LGL2NX: eicar email test: http://aleph-tec.com/eicar/
              1. LGL2RD: I found this via GS[send email test message]
              2. LGL2T2: It allows you to customize the message with a name (I’m thinking “Test <id/>”
              3. LGL2UQ: You’ll need to uncheck for a test virus to be included) (unless you want that, too) and insure “Clean notification” is checked.
              4. LGL2XB: It seems like it won’t abuse your email address, but there’s no guarantee.
      3. LGL295: A few minutes ago I do test email client with <an email address/> and it arrives.
      4. [LGLGBQ: >>ID changed for security, still accurate within 1 day] I did the eicar email test with email[<an email address/>] name[Test LGLGBQ — see that ID for details] and it says q[Sending clean… 1 OK! ]q; it arrives, yes!
      5. [LGLGEN: >>ID changed for security, still accurate within 1 day] I did the eicar email test with email[<an email address/>] name[Test LGLGEN — see that ID for details] & got q[Sending clean… 1 OK! ]q
    3. LGL3GS: Testing complete, all operational.
    4. .

    5. LGLFNN: Adding an email address on Dreamhost which forwards to an @gmail.com address gives the warning:

      Note: It is a known issue that gmail will not deliver an email it originally sent back to the sender. This means that trying to test the forward by sending an email from <destination address @gmail.com /> to <source email address/> may not work. Try sending to it from a different email address.

      .

  2. LGLGWB: Create category[Gmail LFDLQE] –using existing ID in Google contacts.

    1. LGLGZR: Parent category[Google product LG5I7A]
    2. LGLH0U: referring to http://Gmail.com
    3. LGLH1O: subcategory[(definition LG5DEF) of (Gmail LFDLQE) LGLH1O] -from this id
    4. LGLH5A: http://2.loverules.info/category — add these.
  3. LGLG8Q: End of In Gmail, sending an email to oneself (as it won’t, but sometimes should)
  1. LGL0GK: The email is in sent but incoming doesn’t arrive. See next:
