Getting a Gmail account is, currently, by invitation only. When the beta-test period is over, they will open the service to the general public.

Question: Why do people seem so enamored by Gmail? Do people still not have email accounts? or have they been holding off all these years for Google to offer it? I am really confused by the all the hub-bub around Gmail... :?

Hmmm...I guess I'm spoiled as I run my own mail server...

o.k...so 1GB...o.k. I'll give you that...FREE...yup, I guess I will give you that too...Google? huh? how does that fit into the equation...you're thrilled they will be indexing your mail?

I dunno...maybe its me :wink:

I know what you mean Ho0dy,

Anyone with a domain name and decent hosting account already has a better solution than GMAIL. If for not other reason, than nobody is looking at you mail.

I'll get an account, but just to check it out and direct crap mail to. (of which, I have so much.)

it will be nice if gmail allows IMAP or POP3. That way, I don't have to open web browser to check my email.
