if you’ve been paying close attention you’ll know that I’ve been using a gmail account for a few weeks now, and on the whole I’m very happy with it. It was a bit spammy at first but seems to be improving, and is certainly no worse than my hotmail. I definitely prefer the UI, the label views and the fact that it stores all my sent messages, which has helped me out several times a week.

As part of the deal I had two invitations to send to people so they could start their own beta test of gmail. One went to my friend Rick at work; the other went to my friend Richard back in the UK. However he seems to have poo-pooed the system. I bet if he’d known that these invitations were so coveted he may not have been so quick to dismiss it.
