Why Gmail is better than Novell.

  1. Space - You have any almost unlimited amount of space for email - including attachments. Archive your email instead of deleting it!

  2. Searchable - The search in Gmail is powered by Google! Enough said.

  3. Labels / Folders - Instead of traditional folders, Gmail lets you tag each email before you archive it for easy reference. Plus, you can put multiple tags on it.

  4. Conversation View - Emails that stem from an initial message are grouped together instead of being listed separately.
