    There are more funny things going on at gmail. For a couple of weeks now I get someone elses gmail mail into my runbox.com account! (I started to use runbox.com instead of gmail a month ago)

    I have forwarding from gmail to my runbox. All the mail I get to my gmail account goes straight to a folder I created at runbox.com, not to runbox inbox!

    His mail adress is similar to mine in gmail, like this: if my email is "peter at gmail.com" the mail I get is adressed to peter.s at gmail.com"
    But! The funny thing is that this mail that I get is not redirected from gmail, it comes straight into my inbox att runbox!? Straight to my inbox at peter at runbox.com
    Very strange...maybe the forwarding function in gmail has gone mad?

    (FYI: the emails mentioned here are just examples, not my or his real email adresses)
