ICloud & gmail

by djohlson / May 10, 2012 12:45 AM PDT

On my iPad 2, I think I'm mailing from my gmail account, but sometimes I find the message went via iCloud and I don't know why. Isn't it better to use gmail since iCloud has a free 5gb limit? And isn't better to have all mail in one place?

Wouldn't that be a personal choice?

Sending 5GB of email a month would be hard to do. Even today.

icloud 4 gb is not just for one month

That 5 gb of storage from icloud is the permanent free max. That's not a monthly max as your reply sugests. gmail allows you to store almost everything you ever send or receive and without the hassles of dealing with Apple and icloud.

I wrote email. You wrote storage.

If I sent 5GB of email and used that as storage, no more emails?

I use GMAIL and other things but something got lost in translation here.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
