Yeah, so, I know that people have been talking about the "rumor" of the whole G-Mail where you get a gigabyte of storage and whatnot, but it is a reality...  My friend has contacts and such, and I might end up getting a "G-Mail" account here sometime.  Umm, other than that, this thread is pointless.  Yeah.  Well, what do you think?

I've got gmail! It's my first name, then a dot, then my last name at gmail.com (I don't want any spam web-bots getting it).

It's true, you get 1 gig! I don't know what the limit is on individual message/attachment size is though.

But the best part is that the gmail site uses javascript extensively so that you don't have to wait for the page to reload (unless you click on one of the emails). View inbox, click preferences, BAM it's there - no waiting. It's so cool.

I don't have any invites yet, I just got it.

gmail rocks! I seen Yahoo and Hotmail is the news planning to up their storage space, but what I really hope catches on is gmail.com's fast javascript-based interface.

I have gmail, but I sent all my invites out.  As soon as I get more (they come in sets of 3) I'll help out.

Apparently some hotmail accounts got increased to 100Mb just like that. Evidently GMail's started a "email war" which hopefully it will win Cheesy

I don't have an account, but I've asked, so hopefully I'll get one soon Smiley

Please don't beg me as I'll get the invitations out when I get more.  This thread came a few days late though.  Zap, Webberboy, Dark_prevail got invited.  whether dark knows or not, I don't know.

It takes awhile to get them.  If you just got it, you have to use it for awhile.  The more you use, the quicker you receive.  When you get them, you will not be notified, there's just a link (says "Invite a friend") next to "create a filter" under the search bar.  Click it, fill out name and email, then press send (I think).  After that, the person receives an email, they sign up and the cycle begins again.

Also, as I said before, they come in bundles of 3.  So if you don't pay attention (like me) you may end up with 6 or 12 or just 3.
