Somehow i think this is a little bit past 1995. 2.8Gb of storage, free pop access, excellent searching of messages.

GMail is easily the best email service out there. I get so many large images from clients that i use it as my work email and dont have to worry about saving them to my pc.

A good email service can make life a whole lot easier, so yes thats something to get excited about.

A"good" email service !!! This Is something I'm yet to see from ANY NZ ISP.

Funny as even hotmail is better than most, Yahoo is good and Gmail just blows anything else to bits!

And outlook, the sh1ttest application ever created, yewwwww!

NokiaRocks: But atleast google have the motto "Do no evil" :p

Im a Google fan, but that doesnt mean i agree with everything they say.

Google having the motto "Do no evil" is like me having the motto "Dont be tall", because sometimes, you just cant help being what you are, and all the mottos in the world will not take that away.
