Okee-dokee. I usually perform tech support for friends and family, so I thought I'd see if I could help.
I use Gmail, too (my real, non-anonymous e-mail
), but, rather than having to log into the Gmail website to compose/send/receive/read e-mail, I installed Microsoft Outlook and configured it to download my Gmail into Outlook. That allows me to compose/send/receive/read e-mail right in Outlook.
Copies of all my e-mails (sent/received) also exist on the Gmail servers, too, in case my workstation's hard drive crashes. I make regular backups to an external, encrypted USB-connected hard drive, as an extra safety net.
I hope your technical issue gets resolved.
