Beth, there are solutions to a few of your issues. First (I believe you're on a PC, and I'm a Mac person but this should work) you can sync your Google Calendar to Outlook or Mozilla Lightning, and then sync them to your Treo. This way you can at least view your calendar on your phone. Second, take a look at the Gmail keyboard shortcuts -- they completely changed my approach to email. I do almost no clicking, and emailing is much faster this way.

Beth, ah, email. I once worked for a manager who pretty much succeeded at the Inbox Zero thing long before it had a name. I didn't follow her lead.

I'm told Gnus (the client I use) is pretty good at managing large amounts of email, and I'm quite happy with it. There is a bit of a learning curve, though.

Beth,

There's a firefox plugin called GTDInbox that integrates the methodology of "Getting Things Done" into Gmail.

I installed it a while back but haven't actually set it up and used it yet. It might solve some of your problems?
