GMail? Heck No !! I've Got Redif Mail!
gmail is pretty impressive. Their UI is really well done.
>Hosted in India, so you know it's good.
I just got a gmail account this morning so I only have 4 emails in it, but even with just that many i can see the ui is pretty good, just can't wait till I get a few hundred in it and see how it handles. But I know I will be stealing some of their ideas for my own app, especially that little red "loading" bar at the top, that is quite useful.
I didn't write that, it's spam. Forum moderators can probably confirm that.
Has anyone tried spymac?
Why did you post as MarkTAW Sathyaish?
How are so many people getting gmail accounts? Am I the only person online without access to the preview release?
No. I am one too :-)
I don't know why people don't get it.
Once you get an account, you get invites to bring in friends. In my experience, the invites come at a pretty regular pace, 3 at a time.

GMail accounts are less than $2 on eBay. I'm a sucker so I just ponied up $1.75 to see the new interface. Obviously, I don't know enough people "in the know" so...
I got mine from someguys weblog, he had a post "Anybody want Gmail post here" and people have been donating invitations to it.
I called my friend last week, the same one who invited me into Orkut, and she was trying to think of a good name for her GMail account. (firstname.lastname@example.org) We thought of some clever ones. I don't know what happened to it, but she never sent me an invite. I guess you win some, you lose some.
At this moment, Gmail is down. 40 hours after I've received the invitation. It feels like it is hosted in India.
