Bluetooth - GPRS - and other words that keep me employed...

I've reduced my gmail account size by 1/3rd 8-).

It seems that not being able to sort emails by size within GMail is a bit of a problem, but I read on several websites today the trick of using the "has:attachment" search string to find all messages with attachments.

What I then proceeded to do was:
(1) "Starred" any messages I wanted to keep
(2) Used the option to select all "unstarred" messages
(3) Hit delete

This took my gmail account from 299MB to 200MB in about 10 minutes!

The other option widely posted on websites is to use an external mail reader.
Another good idea, but using the web interface and the steps above wasn't too painful a process to quickly cull out messages that I really didn't need anymore.

My job involves working with a variety of mainly Pocket PC or Windows CE devices, setting up GPRS connections over cable and/or Bluetooth. Setting up of these connections is either done programatically (in code) or manually (when all else fails).

Through this work (which sometimes involves visiting other parts of the world), I've come up with, err, I'd hate to call it a "wealth of information", but let's just say that I've struck enough problems over the last few years that I'm sure that SOMEBODY out there might benefit from some of the tips that I'll be putting up.
