Security - Emails

by JohnV / April 14, 2008 4:58 AM PDT

How do I configure my GMail so that only the subject is visible to others, thus allowing me to choose whether to open the email or not? As is now exists, the entire message is shown which is unacceptable. I am running Vista Home Premium on a Dell Dimension E521 Machine. Help is needed and appreciated.

Sorry but you will NEVER control the settings on my email client. Sorry if this seems harsh but it's best you get the answer fast.

As to YOUR EMAIL SETTINGS you can set up many email clients to use Gmail's POP and such so this now becomes feasible for your EMAIL CLIENT. The Gmail web client will be "limited."
