I have more than enough e-mail addresses. I can not keep up with what I have. So I have looked into it.

Gmail isn't out yet. Well, maybe a Beta is, but who would really want that? Besides, even though there's a place for users to log in to Gmail, there's no place for them to actually register for an account. Or at least I haven't found one yet. Be patient, everyone...I'm excited too. And it could REALLY help next year when I have to transfer big files (like Photoshope files) between school and home. I'm looking forward to it too. So, even if you get an "invitation" (I haven't heard of this system), wait for the public version. It'll be much more improved, and it'll be out soon....


And did you hear!? Look what Yahoo did today! All of their free e-mail accounts now offer 100 MB of free space! 100 MB! That's great! Yes, it's still only 1/10 of Gmail's space, but Gmail isn't out yet, now is it? So, in the meantime, we still get semi-luxury! After all, what other e-mail services offer 100 MB? Yahoo was offering like 6 MB before today!

You can't register now because it is beta but if you get an invitation you get the full 1gb storage and tons of usernames still available.

YaHOO! Its gone upto 100MB. Its ace, you really don't need that much, do u. And if u do, just open a new account. Yahoo Mail is cool!

Gmail would be cool only coz of the unclaimed usernames.
