I take it you guys have not been reading all the news reports on gmail. They read every piece of mail, they can do anything they want with your email contents. You gave them that right as soon as you accepted their terms. And thats not media paranoia, all this was stated by google themselves in interviews for several of the news stories.

I think the more you use the account the more invites you build up.

I wouldnt mind a gig of emial, that is a lot more than the 100mb of yahoo... I dont think it will be my primary email addy, but if you have an invite, feel free to send it to prophetesque at hotmail dot com. Thanks, Zeke

Hotmail sent me an email sayig that they are going to give us 200MB free space i think...may have only been the same 100MB that yahoo gave me, but id like to be optimistic about it. as for the spam, it seems like when ever an email addy of mine gets like 3-4 months old it starts to get spammed a lot more, i guess the bots are catching up to me.

I heard that MSN will offer 2Gegs storage soon, with 20 Megs attachement.
I think it will be more reliable than Gmail...

Read the terms and conditions.

They get bots to read your email and then they send you email to do with your current mail.

So if i sent you an email about computers. They would send you offers etc about computers.

I don't see what the ballywhoos all about either...its a name plus I should think they're as bad as hotmail or yahoo for email laundering, spam, etc - I guess its just cause its well known

As for the 1Gb and search facilities I've got 2Gb, unlimited file size attachments and 250Mb file uploading with another pay-for service :roll:

Hitsco, that 2 gig storage and 20 meg attatchment deal is a pay service, it costs $19.95 per year for all that good stuff. you also dont have to worry about your account expiring if you pay. Im still going to stick to the free emailing...

The news reports I've read have been all over gmail, attacking it for being invasive and conspiratorial.

Guys, no one reads your mail. A computer scans the text to target you with these tiny ads that take up about 150 pixels of the screen. They're text only. I barely notice them.

Gmail offers 1000 MB of storage and a searchable database. I don't care if a computer scans what I'm sending to other people. It's completely worth it for me.

Yes. They're planning to increase storage space to 250 MB this fall.

I've got Gmail and I don't mind computers scanning my email. What's the big deal about this privacy issue? It this is a violation of privacy, what about Google displaying relevant text ads on the Google search?

No.

They don't send any e-mails... They just put some text advertisements on the side of your e-mail when you are reading it, which I never notice anyway :|

Oh, and if anyone wants an invite e-mail me at mrsomeone at gmail dot com. I have a few left to give out.

I've got 2 accounts, and it totally owns Yahoo! or Hotmail. I used Yahoo for about 4 years, and as soon as gmail came out, I switched my main email to gmail. It's VERY nice.

This invitation idea was found by a Turk (name is Orkut) who is a partner of the Google (for the http://www.orkut.com service) and now for Gmail .

I am really amazed how wonderfull working idea is this , 1 of every 2 people that i know(about 1Ks) got Gmail in a very short time.

Yes it is just text ads they give, and use a program to analyze your email so you get targeted ads. All the other free webmail systems have complete access to your emails if they want, so its no different really. Google just tells you they are doing it.

Also, Gmail is useful for other things! Like...a free gig online to store anything through [url=http://richard.jones.name/google-hacks/gmail-filesystem/gmail-filesystem.html]
GMailFS[/url]. But it only works for linux, sorry :)

And you can use an API someone made to check it from your desktop, or use PopGoesTheGmail to check your gmail in POP3 clients and such. Huzzah!

On that note, I have 4 invites to give away so PM me. :D
