Educate me, my ears are at full attention. Whats so special about Gmail? The address I use on my profile isn't my 'real address'. Just a free account I opened so you guys could drop me a line and tell me how much you love me. ;) I've had people tell me they could give me Gmail accounts before, but I suppose my ignorance on the sheer greatness of the account kept me from taking them up on the offer. So tell me all about Gmail! Posted by Hello

Don't get me playing guessing games with you. I don't know jackdiddlyshit about puters. In fact, here's a little poem I wrote as an ode to my electronic ignorance ...

I'M A COMPUTERLY MORON

I don't add extras to my IRC
Such stuff as that only confuses me
With computers and such, I'm a total moron
With a thickened skull cast in boron
I don't know diddly about bits or bytes
Or how to edit those famous web sites
Or how to hack a computer with ease
I'd need a hatchet instead of the keys

Gmail is supposed to revolutionize the way we do email. Here's the welcome message that they sent me upon formation of my account:

First off, welcome. And thanks for agreeing to help us test Gmail. By now you probably know the key ways in which Gmail differs from traditional webmail services. Searching instead of filing. A free gigabyte of storage. Messages displayed in context as conversations.

So what else is new?

Gmail has many other special features that will become apparent as you use your account. To help you get started, we encourage you to visit our Help Center, there you can browse frequently asked questions, read our Getting Started guide, or contact the Gmail User Support Team. You'll also find information in the Help Center on such topics as:

Importing your contacts from Yahoo! Mail, Outlook, and others to Gmail
Using address auto-complete
Setting up filters for incoming mail
Using advanced search options

You may also have noticed some text ads or related links to the right of this message. They're placed there in the same way that ads are placed alongside Google search results and, through our AdSense program, on content pages across the web. The matching of ads to content in your Gmail messages is performed entirely by computers; never by people. Because the ads and links are matched to information that is of interest to you, we hope you'll find them relevant and useful.

We're working hard during our limited test to improve Gmail and make it the best webmail service around. Thanks for taking the plunge with us. We hope you'll enjoy Google's approach to email.


Thanks,

The Gmail Team

Basically, they give you a shit ton of storage (1 Gig). Gmail also has this cool feature called conversation or something like that, where you can see all of the correspondence spawning from one email (the other person's replies, your replies, etc.).

So far, honestly, I like it much better than anything I have used.

And I have some invites if you'd like one. ;-)

Okay - he said it all. I have to agree - I like it better than anything else too. I love the conversation thing. It keeps the whole series of emails together and tells you who all has responded.

There was a conversation between my husband, my daughter's 2 teachers, and myself. So when I go to my inbox it looks something like

me, Ryan, Jane (4) Subject title

So when I glance at it I can see that there are 4 emails in the conversation and that they are from me, my husband, and my daughter's science teacher, but her English teacher hasn't added anything to the conversation.

Clear as mud? I also have some invites - I think I already offered. :)

I like G-mail way more than yahoo. It is more intuitive and it has features that Yahoo doesn't. I know people who have been with Yahoo for years who won't switch because of the attachment they have with it. I understand that, but I think that G-mail is better.

Multiple thanks to rdturpin and Em for offering to invite me to gmail. I am touched by the kindness of strangers, and have taken rdturpin up on his offer!

 
At Monday, September 27, 2004 9:41:00 PM, Blogger Em said...

I have sent one to you. Hopefully I'm posting this soon enough so no one else wastes an invite. I don't think you get them back if the person doesn't use it. :)

Yep, most bloggers are kind-hearted and generous. Russ and Em did their daily good deeds.

Hey GW, what's up Mama? Nice pic. I love when you post those!

I have been curious about the G-Mail thing myself and thought about posting something about it on my blog. Guess you beat me too it! If anyone has an extra invite left over feel free to hit me up!
