Gmail Bug Fixed

How credible Flipboard articles are? From an insider in the business online post, it read that a few Gmail users have noticed that they have been "sending" emails to unknown recipients-- people they have not added in their contacts, and never heard of them before. Google mail services apparently outsmart users and facilitate the use of its feature: auto-suggest contacts to whom you, as a Gmail user, might want to send your emails to.

So, before you click Send, check carefully the "To" field which Google mail services seem to put less-frequently contacted on top of our list of contacts. Smart. But needless.

Have you noticed some unusual gmailing lately from your end? I wondered about what you'd think as soon as you read this post. The first thing I thought was, "Ooh, careful with what I write, just in case my letter goes to the person I didn't mean to write to."

Acknowledgement of the problem has been extended by the Google team.

Apologies accepted.

Have not heard of this. But it's good that it's been fixed already.

I am so glad this has been remedied for so many users. I use Yahoo, and it is a bit cranky at times, but too lazy to switch.

I haven't either. I trust that Google would have overseen the bug and fixed it straight away.

I trust Google to be reliable source of services.

AsADrivenLeaf I did not hear about this bug, but when it comes to Google, they can pretty much do anything with our data, they read our emails all of the time (since we gave them persmission when we signed for our Gmail accounts).

Hmmm, that isn't pretty. But is pretty intrusive. I think Google "Intelligence" spies on any suspicious activity that harm security. I don't mind my emails being "read". But it doesn't make their intrusion right unless we legally agreed to those terms.

No I haven't but that is kinda scary, what if they lost control with the emails, and send important documents to the wrong person. Hehehe... but I am glad that they fixed it. I have a gmail and yahoo. and I used yahoo often, because gmail I think need a faster internet so it can load properly.

I have two different gil accounts that I use often most days. As far as I'm aware I had no problems.

I have never experienced a bug in my email or may be I am just not aware of it. May be I should be observant regarding this.

I need to actually check my gmail and empty it; I use Yahoo more, but thanks for reminding me. I'm glad the bug was fixed.
