I am going to be moving home (in a while) and may be without net connection
for anything up to 6 months. I don't want to lose my gmail account and
thought I'd ask for ideas.
1. Is there any way I can setup a cron to send a short email from my account?
(say I send it to my own account to - just to ping gmail and fake my
2. Is just sending the odd email (say every 30 days) enough to keep the gmail
account alive? Do I have to recieve (read) mail too?
My brother-in-law is renting a virtual server and it runs Debian (I think) -
so I would ssh into that and setup the cron on that machine so that it keeps
the gmail account alive.
