they are both the same other than the name

thank you for the comment
I assumed they were the same
it is the address that bothers me
I would prefer @gmail.com
rather than @googlemail.com

No 'gmail' available. Googlemail or nowt.

rd - thank you - that makes it nowt for me

rd - very interesting ...
I am registered at @googlemail.com
just sent myself an email addressed to @gmail.com
and it was delivered ok

Try it out with unimportant emails you wish to receive. Otherwise the extra 'oogle' in the email addy shouldn't cause too much bother.

Thanks for that.

I wondered what the difference was, although I have Gmail from within the UK.

Now if somebody could please explain why I have yahoo.com while my son has yahoo.co.uk............!
