    Clearly a phishing scam. I would ignore it but forward to Gmail customer support for verification.

    I'm sick of those fucking Nigerian scam artists. Unless you want to be bombarded with them, never post anything for sale on craigslist!

    I didn't get any spam in my inbox until I switched one of my yahoo groups to send me email through gmail. Thank you yahoo. Even still it's a fraction of what I get in my other email account and once you've marked something as spam, you really don't see it again. Unlike with Thunderbird...

    Gmail seems to have better spam filters than other providers but I still get a few. It's unavoidable. Easier to learn how the scammers/phishers operate and hit the Delete button.

    Incredimail? That is what I'm trying to de-install on my computer. It just came out of nowhere and now it insists on being my homepage, after I was looking in doing a grammar check on some of my writing. Instead of doing a spelling check, i did a grammar check and this downloaded incredimail via facebook or something.

    Is Incredimail a good download to have on a p/c?

    IncrediMail Ltd. (NASDAQ: MAIL) is an Israeli company that develops and markets e-mail client programs and other personal desktop software for the consumer and home user markets.
    IncrediMail was founded in 1999 by cousins Yaron and Ofer Adler, and in 2000 received $3.3 million investment from private and institutional sources.[1] It issued an IPO in January 2006 on NASDAQ.[2]
    As of March 2009, IncrediMail claims 80 million downloads of its programs in over 100 countries, and reported Q4 2008 revenue of $6.1 million.[3] On March 25, 2009, its board approved a buy back of up to $1 million worth of shares by the company, on top of approximately 335,000 shares which had previously been purchased.[4][broken citation]


    Even though Incredimail has always been installed with an uninstall routine available via Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel on Microsoft Windows, the uninstall does not completely uninstall the product and special steps must be taken for removal. [5]

    i ended up ditching Incredimail. While its really pretty for emails, it takes up Way too much room, so i ditched it.
