    I want to pass along Gmail invites now that Gmail is sending them out again.

    The previous thread has grown stale as it's been inactive and I don't know who has received invites and who hasn't. So, I'm starting a new one. Post to this thread if you want an invite or have any to hand out to fellow GT'ers. When you are out of invites or have received the one you need, please edit your original post to reflect that.

    Please, let's not make this a discussion thread. I know this is likely impossible on GlockTalk, but it's worth a try. If you want to discuss Gmail or whine about why you don't like it, do so in another thread please.

    I've got two or three invites I can give away.

    Make sure you post when you get your invite so we don't give out duplicates that could have been spread around.

    I was hoping not to open this can of worms in this thread, but in a nutshell, Gmail is a free ad-supported online email service (along the lines of Hotmail or Yahoo, etc.). The primary difference is that you get 1 GIGABYTE of storage space for emails, so you basically don't have to worry about running out of space. It's ads are targeted based on keywords it sees in your emails, which is why some people are opposed to it. Gmail is currently in beta, so it's not available to just anyone who visits the site, you have to be invited by someone who already has an account. Those who have accounts receive invites to hand out every so often. All my real-life friends already have gmail, so I figured I would offer them to GT'ers.

    Check out this link for a list of Gmail features: http://gmail.google.com/gmail/help/benefits.html

    Please discuss gmail in a different thread, that way this one stays as uncluttered as possible so we can see who wants invites. Thanks!

    I have some invites. PM me if you want one.
    It requires:
    - First name (as it will appear on your outgoing mail)
    - Last name (as it will appear on your outgoing mail)
    - current email address (so I can send your invite)

    I have a couple. I will have a few more soon.
    Be sure to include the necessary information on your PM.

    Edit: I just sent one to bfh1229 after he requested it. If somebody else wants one, ask.

    Edit: I've got some more Invites. Whoever wants one, PM me w/ pertinent info.
