I use a Gmail account for some hobby email lists, and
for blog-comment mail. It does some things well but I am
still keeping my primary personal Yahoo account because
Gmail has one missing feature that drives me crazy: the
inability to sort mail by reverse-date. If I'm away from
my mail for a while (as I was just recently, having been
traveling), there's no way to sort messages in reverse
order so the oldest ones are displayed first. Although
Gmail does thread, often someone slightly changes a subject
line or otherwise causes related messages not to appear
together. Also, I prefer the folder structure used by Yahoo
over the label structure used by Gmail.
