Use outlook express as the client. I just looked and its got all my sent messages saved. I've got all three of my accounts on outlook (college, hotmail, and gmail) so i can check them all at once.

Good idea and getting on it.(sometimes the obvious is the last thing to think of) I bet it would be a nightmare for Haro to change email with all the Club business and having it linked already to a paypal account

i do this with my MSU Email, once you authenticate it with a special email, you can send from whatever address you want on gmail as well. all of my mnsu.edu email is sent from, and recieved at my gmail account now. It still appears as it'* from mnsu.edu though.

I agree that GMail is a better setup overall, but changing your address with however many contacts can be a real pain. So far, the Outlook Express suggestion is what I'd go with.

Gmail has a nice tutorial on how to export your Hotmail contacts into Gmail. I've done it.

But, I'm still using Hotmail in parallel. I can't seem to let go of the Hotmail account I created in March, 1997.

I agree with the Outlook advice. I run it that way on my home PC. Opening large contacts through Outlook will typically lock it up, however. Sending through Outlook is nice because you can turn on read receipts--something you can't do in web Hotmail.
