Has anyone else managed to get an account? I got one just tonight and totally by chance. XD

The gig storage will be nice I guess, but I personally don't like the interface... It's a LOT like the normal google page... kinda freaky in a way. =/

If someone would like, I'll attach a screen of what it looks like.

    Yea sure GMail might be cool 'n all because of it's size.. but if you really don't need it, don't use it. Google have the worst privacy concerns on the internet. In other words, pretty much all your E-Mail will be kept by google on their servers for many a decade.Look at this webpage and you'll never use GMail again.

    Seen it all. And I don't intend to use GMail all that much - but it will make a good way to send files. ;P

    And the interface is quite ugly, as I mentioned.

      Yeah, had GMail for a little while.
      Not much use to me, cause I don't use email seriously.
      But hey, the bragging rights are nice.

      There really isn't all that much to use e-mail for at all anymore. Most can be done on IM, which is quick and simple. =/

          Yea it's true. I havn't sent an E-Mail in over 2 years now *awaits amazement* hrmmm.. yea. I have recieved a few to confirm my signing up to stuff. Thats all. E-Mail is useless. All my friends and family that I talk to are on IMs all day long, and get this, theres this telephone invention.

            I have heard of gmail, and I am sort of interested in getting it, since it has A LOT of room to store your emails. I heard that you need to get linked to it by someone who uses it to be able to get it for yourself, though. The only reason why I would want it, is because I get TONS of emails everyday, and I always have to delete them.

              I am using hotmail right now. >_< Unfortunately, it has a limit on how many PMs you can have, so I have to delete them often. @_@ Besides, if I don't then all of my important emails may get hidden in the less important ones.

              That's when you put them in folders. XD

              And Hotmail is upgrading soon, like Yahoo! already did. =/

                Eh. I use Cheat Code Central's Email service more often than anything else. W00t for underdogs.

                Plus, I hate Google, anyway ^.-

                  <= Gmail owner ;p

                  Yay lol the 2nd topic that I know what it is about in the entire computer forum... ._.; But either way... I will be using Gmail a lot (well when school starts again). Yes there's that privacy concern and I actually read about that, but then who cares if Gmail is going to look at my school projects...? As if it matters much... the nice thing about Gmail is that you can mail school projects among classmates very easily instead of carrying a CD around with you all the time. Gmail is certainly not very reliable in terms of storing private and important messages, but for sending something big yet irrelevant across the internet (like stupid social study powerpoint presentations and what not), it is certainly very useful imho.

                  Well, with the recent upgrades, Hotmail and Yahoo! will allow you to attach those too. =/

                  Though, with GMail, you will be able to store them longer than on Yahoo! or Hotmail I guess then.

                    I will stick with my POP3 email ([email protected] is pretty long though.) but it suits my needs.

                      I like many others rarely use emailand I dislike web-based email even more. So this doesnt really appeal to me, but itd be nice to have an invite because then I could offer it to people and theyd love me. X3

                      And I dont care about privacy; if they want to see my laundry help themselves, Ill never know so itll never hurt me.

                        Riiiiight... one week worth of school and there goes 25% of Yahoo's space (25mb worth of homework junk per week)... and when it's near exam time, I don't want to start another 5 email accounts like what I did this year ([email protected].. [email protected].. and so on up to e)

                        Plus big deal that they're looking at a powerpoint presentation with the events of World War 1 listed... you can find stuff like that anywhere anyway.

                        I'm lucky if I went through that my entire school year. Apologies.

                        POP3 is nice and all, but it does help to be able to check web-based e-mail anywhere in the world, whereas POP3 you have to check it on one computer if you want to keep all your e-mails.

                        Eh, all email sucks. Despite all the spam protection they promise I still get like 600 spams a day...I've given up on email accounts, really. All I ever do now is create one, sign up for a forum, get the activation letter, and never go to it again. And I'm definitely not going to sign up at gmail if they're just going to let random people sign up right now, and I doubt if I was ever able to sign up it'd be any better than yahoo or hotmail =/

                          Yeah frosty is in a very prestigious school, they take too much of his time doing big projects like that. ;_; He actually does have gmail though, miracles happen. How something that was given out in small quantities to reports circulated its way to a lil Asian boy with no knowledge of technology is truly amazing. ;p *pokes him*

                          And Chairman Kaga, if you don't give out the e-mail anywhere, then you don't have to worry about it. ; *has a spam free e-mail*

                          But my original e-mail... before I knew what SPAM was... I get at least 100 a day. x.x;

                            Oh god... you know how much I want Gmail? I've been trying to find a way to get an account for months, but no luck... I found Spymac (www.spymac.com) which also offers a gig storage, but it's not particularly reliable.
