Just Say NO to GOOGLE GMAIL If You Value Sanity

Google's GMAIL is driving me NUTS!
I created this email address just for one class that I am teaching at a different school this term. I do not have faculty email there, so I created an address in GMAIL just for them. First of all, the layout is confusing and messy. It does not look like other email, and it is impossible to find something after it has been read.
If that is not bad enough, a lot of the attachments are coming in as zip files. It took me hours over a 2 day period to grade one little 10 point assignment. SERIOUSLY! I sent the whole class an email asking them to never send me zipped files again. That was before I discovered that the files I send out are being zipped also. ARRRRGGGGHHHHHHHH! What a mess!
I do not use Google search very often, and I sure will not be using GMAIL anymore. I am already using Blogger, but I might just dump it too on the principle that I got 28 new gray hairs tonight! My mental health is in jeapordy!
