I am not a fan of web mail in any form and of Gmail in particular
because it causes me to explain this problem to so many members of Yahoo
Groups I manage.
If, indeed, there is a way to defeat this "feature" within Gmail itself,
I am unaware of it and not a single individual reporting the problem has
ever replied to me that he solved the problem.
I do advocate the use of a local email client, such as Thunderbird,
instead of any form of web mail.
