    GMail Invite! (The irony...)

    Got this in my email a few days ago.

    From : The Gmail Team <gmail-noreply@gmail.com>

    Subject : Gmail Update and Invitation

    Hi there,

    Thanks for signing up to be updated on the latest Gmail happenings. We hope it's
    been worth the wait, because we're excited to finally offer you an invitation to
    open a free Gmail account! Just click on this link to create your new account:

    http://gmail.google.com/gmail/d-2-ro...83f3480e2ca213

    Since last April, we've been working hard to create the best email service
    possible. It already comes with 1,000 megabytes of free storage, powerful Google
    search technology to find any message you want instantly, and a new way of
    organizing email that saves you time and helps you make sense of all the
    information in your inbox.

    And here are just some of the things that we've added in the last few months:

    - Free POP access: Take your messages with you. Download them, read them
    offline, access them using Outlook, your Blackberry or any other device that
    supports POP

    - Gmail Notifier: Get new mail notifications and see the messages and their
    senders without having to open a browser

    - Better contacts management: Import your contacts from Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail,
    Outlook, and others to Gmail in just a few clicks. Add phone numbers, notes and
    more. Even use search to keep better track of it all.

    We also wanted to thank you. For showing us your support and for being so
    patient. And to those who have already signed up for Gmail, thank you for giving
    it a try and for helping us make it better. Our users are what have made this
    product great. So whether you're just signing up for your account or you've been
    with us since the beginning, keep letting us know how we can build you the best
    email service around.

    That's it for now. We hope you like Gmail and will share it with your friends.
    We've got lots of cool new stuff planned and we can't wait for you to see our
    work in your Gmail accounts! Stay tuned...

    Thanks,
    The Gmail Team

    I has signed up for the invitation in May (maybe June) last year. This is when I got the invitation from them.

    Just to add, I got my GMail invitation in less than one month of joining TZ from some nice guy called B.Dahlke.

    LOL... i never understood the point of Gmail being 'beta' for this long... yet them still hand out so many damn invites to current users.

    most people i know alreayd have Gmail, and prolly have 50 invites each. just seems silly to me.

    Isnt it already? I have problems with its pop3 access via OE occasionally but I think its a prob. with my software.

    Its the best email service so far. Hope to see G-Browser and G-Messenger soon.

    Shoot any of us a PM with your email address and I'm sure you'll get an invite.
