Google is giving out invites to current account holders again, so i figured id hand out mine here to anyone who doesnt already have one and wants one. PM me and ill give you the invite code.

I've had gmail for over 2 months and no invites yet.

I have over 300mb used on one account. And it's not about the space. The webmail itself is a lot fucking better than any other service I've tried.

I'd agree with antpocas here, gmail is far better than any other email service I've seen. None of those crappy banners or shitty ads which you get from hotmail or many of the other free ones.

There are a host of other reasons, but simply put, nothing else I've seen rivals it for speed, simplicity, storage, or flexibility.

I like Gmail for three main reasons:
1) Conversations. It's so, so much better to have all replies in one e-mail, instead of 170+ seperate e-mails.
2) Searching. It's easy to search for things, even if you forgot much of the e-mail you're looking for, and only remember two words from it.
3) Simplicity. It's easy to log on, find new messages and leave.

I would like it if they implemented a calendar feature similar to Hotmail, but I guess they're working on that.

Oh, and NNY, how many invites did you get? I only got one, and was wondering if this is the norm across the board.

I've got another one. It's been a gmail 'invite a day' offer going on in my inbox for a while. If someone wants it, please PM or IM me. It's available to the first person who asks for it.

Edit: Several currently available.
