    No issues yet but is Gmail as safe as other mail clients?

    I'm having a good time in Gmail for now, is there any options inside G to make it safer ?

    I run MS security essentials and that's it in the OS.

    Comments please!!

    Best protection:
    Give your email address out to as FEW people or sites as possible.
    Keep separate accounts for your "friends & family" and "business/internet shopping/subscriptions" or other internet related services.
    Ensure your browser is secure, especially if you are accessing the account from it's website as opposed to an installable email client.

    I'd also want a backup AV/AM scanner as well, like MBAB or some others.
