    I know other people have posted this before, but I have a ton of Gmail invites if anybody wants one. PM me your email address and I'll send one to you.

    free email offered by Google. it has 1G storage and the only was to get an account right now is by being invited. It's still in the testing/Beta mode so it's not open to everyone yet. After Gmail came out hotmail upped it's storage to 250mb.

    I also have 50 invites to give out....

    Is there anything else special about it besides storage space?

    Basically the big specials are storage space and the ability to use google's search to find stuff in your messages. For more info check out http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/about.html . Newly added is POP access. This means you can access your Gmail through Outlook express, therefore saving the messages to your local computer. The big deal is that there is no other big name email provider who provides 1Gb of space and POP access for free. By the way, it's very nice. It is a pain to switch addresses if you have people you email on a non-regular basis, but I think it is worth it.
     
  6. I've got three gmail invites left pm me if you want one

    just out of curiosity: how did you get the ability to invite people?

    as soon as you sign up for an account it will give you invites to give it out. I started with 6 and then I looked last week and it told me I had 50.

    it might take a few days to get them. i have a program that uses my gmail account as a storage drive on my system. just install a little program and instantly you have a 1gb virtual drive on your computer, but you can access it anywhere by logging into Gmail

    I think it took a week or so to get the first 6. I just looked this past week and I had 50, but I've been using the account for several months now.
