Can I read gmail on my computer?
Yup. Go to google.com, and click the gmail link on the top.
Google.com > Gmail (on top) > log in.
:welcome: to the Droid Forum Dafey. Not only can you, you should use your computer to read gmail.
You'll find that the computer is sometimes a quicker and easier resource for clearing up clutter and junk then your Droid is.
It's all one big happy family: Computer, Droid, Google, and gmail. They all work together.
One thing that's also good is that if you're synching your Gmail contacts, you can look at the entire list via Gmail on the computer, organize them, and then let the Droid do the synchage. For instance, my Droid was listing a few people more than once, with one contact being one of their email addresses, and another a telephone number(s). There are merge options on the phone but it's a lot easier to merge contact info via Gmail on the computer.
It's also far easier to set up/manage labels and filters on a computer than on the droid itself. More elbow-room.
you can always go to http://gmail.com too =/
I'm not trying to be mean, or nonconstructive. But, this thread actually made me laugh out loud.
Gmail was actually introduced 4.5 years before Android phones were released. So, yeah, you can access it by other means.
I laughed too, heck I thought it was an April Fools posting. Gmail is so common, I switched to it when it first came out and you had to invite people. It beats Hotmail, and Yahoo mail and all the others. I'm surprised at anyone that does not know about Gmail.
It is free, its fast, and it blocks junk real easy.
Wkipedia says: 176 Million Users and was started in beta back in 2004 (yep that is when I got mine).
It's easy to forget how new things are when, well, when they are new
My mother in law wanted to get something from one page to another. I told her she needed to cut and paste it. Then had to explain that, then she wrote it down. I got as far as "you need to select all the text, copy it, then go to the other document". Then, as I was saying "You next need to paste it in" she was saying "I'm not going to do all that". Everything is new to someone at some point.
Definitely, definitely use Gmail on your computer. I used Hotmail way-back-when and I have a Yahoo account if I need to give out an email address anywhere sketchy. Gmail is *far* superior to these and gives a great online email experience. Check out the embedded help in Gmail for a lot of useful tips for learning to use all its powerful features and enjoy!
but then in that case...lol (no offense to the OP)
How did the OP register for Droid Forums?
