Hi Everyone
For those of you who are not satisfied with their current e-mail provider, may I suggest googles gmail. Its free, it has a fantastic spam catcher, tons of mail/file storage space, huge attachment capabilities, and many many more options.
I have "50" invitations to give away if anyone is interested. They will send you the invitation, you look it over and decide if it has what you are looking for.
Send me your active e-mail address either, PM me or use 1olddawg@gmail.com
Regards
Brian

i have 100 to give away
12/02/2005 09:27:27 AM · #3
I another 100
12/02/2005 09:58:38 AM · #4
It'd probably be easier to list people who *don't* have gmail invitations to give away!

Isn't that the one that scans your e-mail messages for keywords so that advertisers can "target" you?

I think everyone knows about GMail already.
don't advertise. It's annoying.
And yes. I already have GMail.

Gmail is THE fastest email provider out there; not to mention easy to use and read.

I've never seen an Ad on Gmail to date. I have a ton of invitations to give out also. My gmail is in my profile.

I almost NEVER recieve spam, unlike hotmail and yahoo, and my ISP account.

Hrm. You must have a special account. There are ads down the righthand side for most gmail accounts.
12/02/2005 11:06:41 AM · #12
yeah, the ads appear when you open a email to read, all the way to the right as mk said and under the title "Sponsored Links"
12/02/2005 11:18:06 AM · #13

I don't mind those ads. They are mostly just text, so they don't distract your eye or slow down the page. Google has to make money somehow; is it right for us to expect such an awesome service to be totally and completely free?
12/02/2005 11:24:21 AM · #14
To remove those adds, if you use Firefox, you can use the extension
CustomizeGoogle Firefox entension

Besides those adds are not as irritating as the graphics adds with other email providers

hah! i still didn't see them until you mentioned it!
12/02/2005 12:32:45 PM · #19
hmm no ads here. and I don't have a special account. huh?
12/02/2005 12:34:12 PM · #20
It's easy to avoid the ads by using a pop3 client like microsoft outlook or thunderbird as your mail client for the account.
12/02/2005 12:35:20 PM · #21
I don't think the issue was that there are ads. I think it's that google is reading your top secret private information and stealing bits and pieces to be used in the vast governmental conspiracy!!

Oh right, but since I don't have enough excitement in my life as it is, I think I'll stay involved. :o)

of course, if you use a pop3 client then you negate the benifit of having web based email, ie, you can't take them with you to any and every computer...
