Out of curiousity (and possibly ignorance), what's a "gmail invite"? I thought gmail was an email service of Google - I plan to look into it to establish a non-ISP-dependent email address.

You cannot just go to their website and sign up for gmail account. You have to be invited by someone with a gmail account.

You can see how easy it is to obtain an invite though!

ETA: Gmail is a subsidiary of google

you can actually also sign up with a mobile phone. you enter your #, they send you an auth code, you enter it back in and they give you an account.

and others who have no idea how gmail is better than almost any other email providers..

1) It offers POP mail access
2) Has an in built chat application
3) Filters for spam is much better
4) Setting up Filters to sort your own email is an easy task
5) No crazy banner adds, just text adds (that can be easily blocked if using firefox)
6) Much faster, searching for email is like using google to search something over the web .. uses the same search engine
7) Mails kept in conversation mode, makes it so much more simple to track an email
8) and did I mention over 2.5GB of space which keeps increasing!

No I don't work at Google, just admire the amazing technology they bring in the market!

So if you need an invitation .. 98 left! gmail me at garg.vikas@gmail.com

The Spam feature is awesome, I never get any spam email in my regular email, it always if any puts it automatically in the junk mail folder.

Also I set it up to be used in my MacMail program kind of like outlook express for the mac and it works great.

One note about Gmail:

Be careful about becoming totally dependent on it, especially using a pop client as a front end. While Gmail is in beta (has been for a long time now) it is free. I'm estimating that they will probably charge for certain services in the future.

I have no idea why gmail is still beta .. it seems stable, has been stable from quite sometime !!

I really doubt Google will ever start charging for the services, they generate enough revenues from ads..

Is this just personal speculation to try to scare us all to death, or are you basing this on published information somewhere? Just curious. :)
