Gmail anyone?

I don't want to sound like a Google groupie, but I've been very
impressed switching over recently to G-mail.

G-mail is Google's version of Hotmail, but is vastly superior to it:

1.      It's much faster
2.      It has no annoying flashing ads
3.      It's not linked to an annoying right-wing alleged 'News' site
4.      It seems to much cleverer at eliminating spam

However, its biggest advantage if you use it to participate in
newsgroups like Birding-aus is that it seems to arrange the threads as
single e-mails. Goodness knows how it does it, but instead of, say,
five e-mails, a message and four replies, you get one e-mail including
the whole thread. Very neat idea.

I had to wait for several weeks after expressing interest to get an
invite to sign up, and I think that even now you can't just sign up.
But as a new Gmail person I can send invites to people who want a
Gmail account. So if you like the sound of the above please send me
your existing e-mail to me, and not the whole group, and I'll send an
invite off.

And no, I don't have any shares in Google.
