Woot! I got Gmail!

Taken from my blog:
EXCLUSIVE: Me has Gmail!

Today I logged in to Blogger to make some minor changes to the template, to make it CSS valid. All thanks to the post 'unlucky day' which I reposted with a diff time but same date, thanks to some new features.

To my surprise, I saw a little link sitting at the right side, asking me to beta test Gmail. Now don't go rushing creating Blogger accounts, it seems that only a selected few get them. My friend does not get the link!

I quickly made an account and got 1000MB of space, almost a gigabyte.

To my surprise, GMail looks very much like Yahoo Mail and emails can be deleted (although it tells you not to). I could empty the trash can.

It's very very nice for a BETA, with only a few things funny, like the starred section where the message is cut off and not wrapped. And never once did I spot an ad, which is something they should add soon.

I know you guys are dying for screenshots, and since there's no Non Disclosure Agreement included, I'll show them.

Very happy with it, have anyone else here tried it?

I have it. I'm slowly sending my "collection" to my Gmail account just to fill up space... :D

Actually, words don't get cut off in the Starred section for me. I'm using Firefox.

You get AdWord ads when you're reading your e-mails.

I don't see what the big deal is.

Infact, I hate web based email accounts, I'm a pop3 person myself.

Not necessarily. I have been using it for a few days now and I still can't invite people.

Well hurray for everything :rolleyes:

congratulations on...getting an e-mail account...that must feel really weird, as not many people get to have one of those.

also, congratulations on spamming your blog...we all cared about it.

First, I am pretty sure GMail has been offered to all Blogger users.

Second, I personally am sick of reading posts about your personal possesions.
I don't care about your grades, your post count, your hosting plan, your GMail account, or anything else you have aquired.
End of story.

kthxbi.

I agree...although I believe that applies to everyone who does this.

now ... trenzterra i don't think it's that decent to sell something which is supposed to be free in the first place. You got it for free, at least give the invitations to some of your friends if you don't want to donate them to others.

Jmiller, it is only offered to all active Blogger users, not everyone, as you said, has it.

And you could choose to ignore me or all my threads if you wish, I have a right to post, you have a right not to read.

I don't think anything is wrong posting about your joy.
