Advantages 1000mb, Clean quick interface and various other great features.
Disadvantages Might as well be called ' Big Brother '
Email like no other.
Any good email service should provide the user with enough space to receive emails and be able to store them without having to delete regularly to have free space. Until Gmail came along this was virtually impossible with free webmail, Hotmail offered a mere 2MB with Yahoo and other main competitors offering a little more. You would only see over 100mb with email included with your ISP or an address you pay for. Google shocked everyone when it revealed that Gmail would have a storage capacity of 1000MB ( 1GB ) This meant that user would practically never have to delete an email ever again, assuming the average email is about 5bytes then Gmail could store 200000000 emails! Of course, some emails will be bigger and others will be smaller than that size, but on average. The mighty Microsoft (meh) couldn’t be out done though, so now offer, wait for it – 25MB! Way to go.You would think with being able to store so many emails, it would be impossible to find emails that you had stored or it would at least take along time. Well, with Gmail no. Gmail like many email services, lets you create ‘labels’ (Folders) but these are quick to access and work better than on any other service I have seen. It doesn’t take them out of the inbox, it just labels them in a folder for quick access. Emails are then archived. There is a search function, within which you can search all your emails. It looks through the email content, titles, attachment names and the senders name to bring up your results. This makes for quick and affective finding of emails. In the same search box, you can search Google.com as well which brings email and web searching together at a whole new level, easily switching between email and searching the web. No other currently provides this to the same level that Gmail does.
Google’s support is vast and covers every help topic you would need to ask about in plain simple, easy to understand everyday language. Gmail are also very apologetic if there is ever an unusual downtime of the site etc. Gmail provides a great package yet to be matched by an paid or free webmail service.
In closing, Gmail is an awesome webmail service. It is like no other and is changing how we think of email. It brings it to new levels of speed and storage. Besides the fact that Google can read all your emails, it is THE best email service known to man. If you haven’t got it, you need to get an invite soon!Hope you enjoyed reading,
