Anyone Using GMAIL? (google's new webmail)

Oddly Google's new web based email appears to be by invite. Not sure if it's by invite "only" though. Wondering if anyone else here has set themselves up an account and what they think of it. Obviously yahoo's recent announcement of feature add-ons and storage increase was an attempt to circumvent a large migration of folks to googles whomping 1000MB of storage!

So far, I'm not overly comfortable with the user experience. It's a little cumbersome and uncustomizable. But I'm hoping future releases will be better.

Can a mod please move this to "Off-Topic" for me.

Re: Anyone Using GMAIL? (google's new webmail)

I have it, I posted in the Yahoo thread before I saw this... So far I really like it, much better then any web mail I have used. Detailed searching in the inbox (really fast uses Googles search engine), lots of storage, a useful archive folder. Nice product I hope the speed doesn't go down when they open it up to everyone.

Yeah, now that I've played with it a little more it seems okay. I'm not much of a mail searcher - don't tend to keep that much in my folders. Between yahoo, hotmail, google, work, and my two other accounts you'd think I was a popular guy

It is only a "test" site/email for now. It sounds like once they've got all the bugs worked out, they'll open it up to the public.

Re: Anyone Using GMAIL? (google's new webmail)

I looked a preview of the email (since I was not invited to test it ). It looks pretty cool with different, new features compared to other free web-based email services (IMO).

I've been trying to pick her up for some time now, but no such luck. I tried everything flowers, chocolates, romance, bike parts, stocking her - but nothin'. I need to talk to Baccus or SuperDave for some advice on smoothing it with the ladies

If I get anymore invitations I'll send you one, I had a bunch but they went fast. As far as I know they haven't given a timeline for the beta but I haven't had any problems using it.
