Sorry, guys, but I'm firmly in the 'relying on cloud storage for ANYTHING is stupid' camp. My reasons--which I've probably written about before --include the obvious: no Internet connection, no access to your files; no electricity, no access to your files; the cloud server is hacked, no access to your files; etc. Not worth the risk to me. Please keep in mind that having lived in Tornado Alley (Dallas) for many years, I KNOW power and Internet outages! Way too well. Sucks. And, ironically, after moving back home to California, I had an almost three-week Internet outage a while back. I simply cannot imagine being unable to access my files--including my old mail--due to a power or Internet outage. Even if you like the portability factor of using web mail, you can still use a real e-mail client, too. Just think of it the other way around from how I do. What I mean is, my e-mail client (SeaMonkey) is set to automatically check for and download mail every few minutes, NOT leaving copies on the server (Earthlink). You could do it the other way, letting your e-mail client download mail but choosing to leave the mail on the server. KMail is nice--it's one of the clients I've tried for the hell of it--but SM's e-mail/newsgroup client is so much better. It has every feature I could want, and then some I wouldn't have thought of!
