I've heard that too, but it is not true. GMail delivers proper mail just
like anyone else does, including from yourself. I use a GMail account as a
means of subbing in digest mode to all my lists since Mailman won't let me
use the account I use for list mode. Like someone else said, GMail has
EXCELLENT spam filters just like EarthLink (my primary email account) does,
but just before I wrote this I sent myself a message using my GMail account
and it came right through in seconds.

I don't use gmail but I've heard repeatedly on this and other lists that
gmail will not deliver mail TO you that comes FROM you. I guess they figure
it is mostly spam.
