Gmail is a free, search-based webmail service that combines the best features of traditional email with Google's search technology. Gmail makes locating messages so easy that you?ll never need to shuffle mail in your inbox again. Besides this entirely new way of reading and tracking messages, Gmail includes 1,000 megabytes of storage space -- an entire gigabyte, quite probably more than you'll ever need. Best of all, it?s free. I hope this help you out, I have a gmail account and it is ok. Look at it this way it don't cost anything to sign up and use it and if you don't like it don't use it after so many months if the account is dormant they will do away with the account. Your son must have an gmail account, because you can only get this gmail though an invite from someone.
I am using Windows 98 with Outlook Express. I just received an email, from my son, "inviting me to open a free Gmail Account" I have absolutely no idea as to what this GMail account is all about except for the fact that it is via Google. I live in Canada and he has just moved to the U.K. I have not been able to contact him so I am left with this "invitation" with no further info. about it! Can anyone help me? I would love to know if this is good, bad, or ??. Any info. on this GMail account would be really appreciated. Thanks..J
