To prove you're not a spammer, email newuser.lgqa@gmail.com with the subject "Account Request" to request an account.

I switched over to an Imap account with Godaddy (Laugh at me now) about a year ago. I would never touch there God-awful web interface, so I use Mail.app on Mac OS X to retrieve my email. Everything works out great, the only problem I have is that when I read a junk message in Mail (Which is in Mail's Junk Section) it is marked as read inside of Mail, but not on other devices (iPhone). Now when a normal email comes to my inbox, and I read it, Imap works the way it is supposed to an marks it as read on the server, But for some reason, it still sees my read Junk Mail as unread. I am assuming it is because I am making a local change, but let me know if you have any solution. Thanks

One of the gr8 features of Gmail is its ability to filter out junk mail. I get, according to Gmail, about 600 spams/junk mail per month... and I never see them unless I deliberately open the Spam folder. Once a month I scan the Spam folder to see if a legit mail got put there because of content.... "You can make $1,000 if you buy my car and resell it..." for instance... that would trigger Gmail spam filter. No need to delete mails either as I have at least 15,000 that I can search on easily.

Apple mail.app with Michael Tsai's excellent SpamSieve. Once you have trained SpamSieve the junk is funneled off to a Spam folder. Before you totally flush what ever dropped into Spam you have the opportunity to check what's in there for "good" mail.
