It’s still in Beta but you can now sign up and don’t need the invitation from another Gmail user. I (love) Gmail.
It’s great on the fone (m.gmail.com) or you can download the app for the Blackberry. I also like, no wait, probably love, the search functionality, it actually works and the filtering is not at all difficult yet very effective.
It is also really good at filtering spam and has a built in chat module that you can also install on smart fones and chat to twitter.com!!!
PS. the 2835 megabytes* of space is pretty cool (as of writing this, it is always increasing).July 16, 2007 at 2:32 pm #742583AnonymousInactive
The American version is fully functionable and anyone can register an account.
Google has done what noone else can do and that is put all the essential tools into one very friendly account…..
Gmail saves every mail and conversation you ever had so all your records are very easily searchable and that is the best feature…that and unlimited storage!July 16, 2007 at 2:38 pm #742584AnonymousInactive

Just a word of advice before signing up for an account with Gmail…
2 weeks ago I tried logging into my account (where I keep a lot of sensitive and extremely important information that I need daily) and it said my password was incorrect.
I then tried resetting my password where it told me it was sending the password to a secondary email address I used when signing up (4 years ago) where they only told me the domain where the email address was (@usa.com).
Since I haven’t used the email in 4 years and cannot remember the username, I was unable to get the password from there. So it told me I had to wait for 5 days of inactivity to answer my security question. 5 days without my gmail was murder. All the info I needed in there every day I couldn’t access.
So I waited 5 days (and this inactivity includes failed/attempted logins) and when I answered my security question it told me my answer was wrong.
So now 2 weeks later I’m still waiting for a reply from them. I have tried calling and emailing and anything possible. I’ve even called the sales office in Sydney to see if they can do anything for me. They couldn’t help me. Google US doesn’t take phone calls.
I have everything they need. The URL which I used to accept the invitation, the person who sent me the invitation, the date i created the account, my security question etc etc etc and they still haven’t replied to me.
I’m pulling my hair out.
So my point is, if you create a gmail account, make sure you update your secondary email whenever you need to otherwise you have no hope of getting in if something strange happens. The funniest thing is that I was logged in the previous day fine and had no problems. Got to work and tried logging in and bam.
I’m not happy. Actually I’m furious.July 17, 2007 at 4:00 am #742661AnonymousInactive
About an hour after posting here I received an email from Google saying they were sorry for the confusion etc and that they had reset my secondary email address to the one I had written to them from. This was in response to a few forms I filled out more than once on their site with as much info as possible that I could inlcude.
So the instructions in the email tell me to go through the lost password steps and click the link to send the password to my secondary email address, then follow the instructions in the email that gets sent.
So it’s been a few hours now, and no email has come to my secondary email address, despite after clicking the link it tells me an email with my password was sent to my secondary email address at blah domain (which is correct).
So back to the drawing board I guess…July 17, 2007 at 6:18 am #742668PatrickMMember
