You've probably read about it click here

Well, I have 5 Gmail invitations waiting to be sent out. If you would like one of these, please contact me using the yellow envelope.

I am sure I have read a few articles concerning privacy where they scan your e-mails to send TARGETED adverts?
It may or not be true.

After reading your link obviously 'scaremongering'.

Message to:- VoG™

From:- Forum Editor (I've taken out the e-mail address)

"If you have a spare invitation I wouldn't mind one VOG - I would like to evaluate Gmail so I know what I'm talking about when it crops up in the forum."

Maybe I should have confined this to 'envelope' stylee messaging, but it clearly isn't working and the message tickled me anyway.

Thanks. FE's invite is on its way (if I remembered his e-mail address correctly).

and I'm pleased that the message tickled you Belatucadrus. I received my invitation VoG™, and have signed up with Gmail.

It looks and feels much as I expected. I doubt that it will be of much use to me personally, but we'll see. I do like the sound of 'conversation grouping', it will help when searching for messages although I can do the same thing in Outlook 2003.

"scan your e-mails to send TARGETED adverts"

They don't send you ANYTHING. I've not received a piece of spam since I've been using GMail *touchwood*. What they do do is scan your e-mails to display targeted adverts, in the form of Google Adwords which can be seen on many websites.

Its actually much better than Hotmail, Yahoo, Lycos and the PCA site; all advertising is text only so it is far less intrusive.

I quite like the conversation grouping, labelling and simplicity of replying.

I've still got 2 invitations waiting to be sent out :o)

VoG™ I received another of your envelope messages, as the envelopes are going astray, I've posted the details to you on Spikeychris non PCforum message board.
