Gmail

Okay, who wants a Gmail account? I have six invitations to give away. The raccoons who helped me in my earlier post get first go, but anyone listed as a friend is welcome to have one. First come, first served. Even if I give them away, I'll probably get more of the bloody things anyway so don't be shy about asking for one.

EDIT: I'll need your e-mail address. Send me an e-mail to:

kangaroos [at] gmail [dot] com

What are the advantages? I already have Hotmail, and Yahoo! has just extended it's limit to 100Mb, I have another account through a friend that is 20Mb (I think), and my OptusNet account, which also gives me 5 other email accounts. I know Gmail has an uber-limit, but other than that I am not sure what the advantages are over the others I already have.

You get 1GB of space, a nice interface (IMHO) and only discrete advertising down the side.

I'll try one. It's free, right? :-)

Of course it's free! But I'll need an e-mail address to send it to.

Cool! Thanks!

Awww... I can't use Aldi since they require at least 6 characters. So I used my real name, alaindion at gmail dot com.

No, but you will if you use it often enough.

raccoonroo: Gmail thing

Hey Marko,

Hmm, it sounds interesting. How 'bout letting the ol' mexican raccoonroo try one of those tasty emails? Hmmm, sounds yummy!

My email: raccoonroo at hotmail dot commmmm

or do you need a "paid" account, like the one from my ISP?

Sent! Let me know if you don't see it, though; I've heard Hotmail trashes Gmail invites as spam. (Funny that...)
