Get Access to Gmail, Yahoo! Mail from AOL

aolAOL has rolled out a new version of Web Mail with enhancements to compete with web-based email majors like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Hotmail. New plugins for connecting to third-party email rivals Gmail and Yahoo! Mail have been added along with a bunch of other new plugins. The AOL Sync function has been added and a plugin gallery has been rolled out.  Check out the new AOL Web Mail at the AOL Mail page.

New plugins will allow access to Gmail and Yahoo! Mail from the AOL Web Mail account. Following in Google’s footsteps of adding themes on Gmail, AOL now has added 45 new skins to their email. Microsoft had also added new themes to their Windows Live Mail.

The new plugin gallery will allow for one-click access to different services, and the platform is also open to third-party developers for developing more plugins for Web Mail.

Real-time update support to AOL Calendar and the Address book can now be provided though the desktop-based application or via wireless mobile devices.

The novelty of accessing Gmail and Yahoo! Mail from the AOL Web Mail account may appear cool at the moment, but let’s not overlook the security aspect of it. It’s too early to say whether these plugins are completely secure as AOL has opened their mail platform to third-party content and applications.

Gmail Tips

Tip #1.  Every Gmail ID that you have is actually two separate IDs in one. For example; if your Gmail ID is xyz@gmail.com, mails sent to either xyz@gmail.com and xyz@googlemail.com will reach you. There is a usefulness that you can derive from this. Say you want to use just one email ID for all purposes: you can give xyz@googlemail.com to all your friends and use xyz@gmail.com to register on websites, post on forums or place on a blog. Then you can create a filter; to deliver emails sent to gmail.com to the inbox and the emails send to googlemail.com to a separate folder.

Tip #2.  Chances are that spam is not a really big problem with your Gmail ID. But if you’ve been careless and given away your ID to all and sundry, there is a little trick called ‘Gmail Plus IDs’ that you can use to nab the culprit who’s given away your ID. The theory is this; if your email ID is xyz@gmail.com, all email sent to xyz+hotmail@gmail.com will also be delivered to your inbox. Now this is the sneaky part. Suppose you need to register at http://www.thinkgeek.com, put down your email ID as xyz+geek@gmail.com. Similarly, if you have to register on incrediblehulk.marvel.com, put down your email ID as xyz+hulk@gmail.com. Check your spam mail once in a while. If you get spam mail addressed to xyz+hulk@gmail.com, you’ll know who gave away your email ID. What you do with that info is up to you.
