Glorious mail Review with images

AdvantagesProviding large space for emails, pop3 access is free, etc,

DisadvantagesInterface is a bit simple.

"...Hotmail and other email services Google provides us the facility of email account. But it is too different from to the Hotmail and Yahoo. When you visit the Hotmail and Yahoo for making an account you can click on the Sign up button to create a new account. But at Gmail you never saw any button of Signup to create an account. You can create an account with the help of invitations. I think to edit this review because G mail growing day by day. ..." Read review

AdvantagesVery Fast, Good spam filter, great clean interface and mail system, exclusive

Disadvantagessome ads present, still 10MB file limit, naming system

"...exclusive beta mail system from Google which is under testing and gives a whopping 1GB of space to its users.

The biggest feature is the 1000MB mailbox limit. For years people using webmail ..." Read review

GEE! YOU`VE GOT MAIL! Review with images

Advantages2086 MB storage space, searching for emails is based on the Google search engine, still fairly new so good email addresses are up for grabs, email grouping to form a conversation

DisadvantagesAttachments are limited in size to 10 MB, Cannot import contacts from AOL at the present time.

"...an adaptation of the famous Google search engine. Phrases are simply typed into the search field and any emails containing the word or phrase are bought up for inspection. Better still you can search for the name or email address of the person who sent the email to you and you can search just the emails received in the last twenty four hours or since you started using Gmail if you prefer. • Signing Up • At the time of writing (March 2005) Gmail ..."

GoogleMAIL

AdvantagesHuge Storage, Searchable

DisadvantagesPeople not on Gmail don't like big threads of mail

"...the name Gmail was launched, Google were sued in more than one country over the use of the name. Other companies claimed to be using the name already. In the UK, amazingly for a big company, Google gave up the fight and decided to re-brand as Googlemail. So although you can still access your account from www.gmail.com the address from mid October 05 has been name@googlemail.com and not name@gmail.com. If you have an address that was created earlier, ..." Read review

Gmail - Practical and very handy

AdvantagesEasy to search and navigate around, some nice unique features, lots of storage, its free

DisadvantagesTakes a while to get used to some of the more unique features

"...of all the new messages. Now Google decided to look at emails slightly different than some other email programs do and they think of each message as potentially being the start of what they call 'conversations' and they keep track of these conversations. What this means basically is that if you reply to a particular email message and then the person that sent it reads your reply and responds with another message, that response and all subsequent ..."

Google's simplistic, yet professional approach

Advantages1000MB of storage space, easy to use, professional features allow users to tune the way it works

DisadvantagesNew kid on the block (still under testing), you may have a gmail account only by invite

"...is equally as good). When Google first announced its new service, Gmail, there was a lot of speculation over privacy issues. Many felt their e-mails would be subject to being read by strangers, and their e-mails would be scanned for keywords for advertisement purposes. Let me explain how Gmail works, though... PRIVACY Google has explained that it by no means reads your e-mails. The process of adding advertisements is done automatically, ..." Read review

Gmail Baby

AdvantagesEverything

DisadvantagesNone

"...email provider by internet Giants Google was first launched in 2004 as a beta version trial release. After a hugely successful sign up rate, Google made the service free for everyone, and as of early 2007 you could sign up without an invite. Sign Up Process: The process for signing up relatively simple and even people who are not regular computer users would find it simple. Before 2007, a link inviting you to join gmail would be sent to your ..." Read review

G-Mail - Its GREAT-Mail! Review with images

Advantages1GB (1000 MB) free storage, easy to use, never need to delete again!

DisadvantagesLayout does take some getting use to, Restricted signup.

"...irrelevant advertising. What these mean? 1. When Google first announced g-mail and claimed giving people 1GB of inbox space people started talking. However, rumours started going round claiming that you wont be able to delete any e-mails. At this people started to mumble. This is untrue, what Google meant was that there wont be any need although it is possible. 2. Another feature of G-mail is that you can search through your e-mails through a ..." Read review

WOW! No, Its not a hot male, Its Google. (GMAIL) Review with images

Advantages1000mb, Clean quick interface and various other great features.

DisadvantagesMight as well be called ' Big Brother '

"...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, ..." Read review

Gmail....an email service for all

Advantages7 GB of storage capacity, Fast service, insite chat facility

DisadvantagesNone

"...is an email service from Google incl. Gmail has many good features but it has more popularity in Asian regions rather than its host place in western countries like America and European territory. *** I will share some of my experience of accessing this site since last 5 years. The main reason of accessing this site was its fast service. I was familiar with yahoo mail before entering in Gmail, and at the time yahoo mail was very slow to send messages ..." Read review

What Does The G Stand For?

Advantages1gb Storage Space! Clean & easy to use. Status Symbol

DisadvantagesStill under beta-testing and development. Occasional Search Engine results.

"...the time of writing though Google have said it may be something they consider in the future. We'll have to wait and see. Meanwhile, if you want a GMail account you have to know somebody with one, then bribe them with money, beer or sexual favours in order to get them to invite you to have an account as well. Hellooo, GMail account holder here... ;-) With e-mail being the most-used protocol on the Internet just about everybody has an e-mail address ..." Read review

The jury is still out for this new email system.

Advantages1 Gigabyte of disk space for mail, concept of conversations and labels.

DisadvantagesYet to be seen.

"...similar to those on the Google search pages for web services and free email. They call these sponsored links. On the left of my main page are links to default folders/labels. There are 6 of them: Inbox, Starred (huh?), Sent Mail, All Mail, Spam and Trash. A quick click through each of them brought out some simple explanations which can be quite funny. For example the Trash one says "No conversations in the trash. Who needs to delete when you ..." Read review

'Lots of Space'

AdvantagesFree service, Large amount of storage, Easy to Use, Easy to navigate, multi - purpose

DisadvantagesNone

"...described above. You can also 'Give Google email to a friend' using the option to the bottom left of the page and each user is given a max of 50 invites to send to their friends. At the top of the page, on your right...you've got a few more links like 'Calendar', 'Documents', 'Photos', 'Reader' and 'more' which gives you a drop down list of many more links to go to.. My favourite that I use regularly so far is 'Documents' also known as 'Google ..." Read review

Gmail is Great ... but not Glitch-Free ...

AdvantagesClear, well-designed, innovative system

DisadvantagesReliability glitches and some small issues need ironing out

"...mail, a series of familiar Google text ads runs down the side which are based on the content of the mail. So if you receive email about a holiday to Scotland, for example, you will get links to Scottish-based websites. People have expressed concern about the fact that your mail is "read" in this way, though no human is actually involved; the contents of the mail are scanned by machine to provide relevant links. Some people may be wary enough of the ..." Read review
