    Merry Christmas to everyone! I have free gmail invites to give out. I will send them to the first 5 people to post their emails here (you can edit them out afterwards).

    If anyone else has gmail invites to give out, maybe you could post here letting everyone know?

    Any trouble this gets you in with the NCAA is not my problem

    What is Gmail?

    As part of Google's mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful, we're testing an email service called Gmail.

    Gmail is a free, search-based webmail service that includes 1,000 megabytes (1 gigabyte) of storage. The backbone of Gmail is a powerful Google search engine that quickly finds any message an account owner has ever sent or received. That means there's no need to file messages in order to find them again.

    When Gmail displays an email, it automatically shows all the replies to that email as well, so users can view a message in the context of a conversation. There are no pop-ups or untargeted banner ads in Gmail, which places relevant text ads and links to related web pages adjacent to email messages.

    Quick Facts

    Cost: Free
    Storage: 1,000 megabytes
    Languages: Only available English during this testing period, but can be used to send and read emails in most languages
    Access: Free automatic forwarding and POP3 access
    Supported Browsers:
    - Microsoft IE 5.5+ (download: Windows)
    - Netscape 7.1+ (download: Windows Mac Linux)
    - Mozilla 1.4+ (download: Windows Mac Linux)
    - Mozilla Firefox 0.8+ (download: Windows Mac Linux)
    - Safari 1.2.1+ (download: Mac)

    I've got a few invites that I can give out as well, only I won't make you post your email for the whole world to see :wink:. Just PM me (or methomps, since it was his idea) with your current email address and I'll send you an invite.

    I've been using Gmail for about a month or two and I love it so far. 1GB of storage!? Yeah, it's awesome.
