RxPG Gmail Giveaway - 100 more invits!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update

RxPG is still giving away gmail invitations. Anybody requesting for gmail will be forwarded an invitation within 48 hours (now irrespective of rxpg credits - requests by guests will not be considered). Anyone with a RxPG ID can request for Gmail by writing to us using the feedback form and specifying the "department" field in form as Gmail! Do not forget to specify your RxPG Username though.

A Google approach to email.
Gmail is an experiment in a new kind of webmail, built on the idea that you should never have to delete mail and you should always be able to find the message you want. The key features are:

Search, don't sort.
Use Google search to find the exact message you want, no matter when it was sent or received.

Don't throw anything away.
1000 megabytes of free storage so you'll never need to delete another message.

Keep it all in context.
Each message is grouped with all its replies and displayed as a conversation.

No pop-up ads. No banners.
You see only relevant text ads and links to related web pages of interest



With 100-500 times more capacity than other mail providers, google is all set to throw other free mail providers out of business.

Upto 20 invites for starters

Bruno,

Those who got invited at first by Google, got about 20 invites to send out to others. Once we start using gmail, we will too have this option of inviting others. Plus, if you are a blogger, and if you have a blogger.com account, which, by the way, is affiliated to Google, you will get additional invites.

First hand review suggests that it's EXCELLENT! I love the keyboard shortcuts and the fast reply options, address autocomplete etc. I have already had a dozen labels set and everything is going great.

The only big problem with gmail is the way it messes up with attachments. Startup timings are also slower than Yahoo/Rediff. But this is the beta version. If beta is this good, how in bloody heaven would Alpha be?

Cheers

Dr. Kay

When we had seven invits to give away, we recieved only four requests. Now we have no invits and we are bombarded with them. May be chachoch has sold Gmail really well!

we will surely consider any one making a request here if more invits are available. The requests will be considered strictly on the baisis of RxPG credits. So the more credits you have the better will be your chances of getting Gmail before its public launch.


chachoch


I'll help you guys out!
Hey guys,

I'm totally surprised about the alpha > beta thingy!

About procuring a Gmail account ---

Look there are many ways of getting an account.

  • Join Blogger.com. Start your own blog. You will soon get one invite at least.
  • Keep in track of those who already have accounts. They (I refer to akanksha, findmejag etc.) will soon receive the chance to invite someone.
  • Try getting into one of the geeky forums. I got mine from one. I use a mutliple chat client instant messager called Trillian Check it's site here. I went to the discussion forums in the site. Gmail accounts invites are lavish there.

This has been by deepest darkest secret yet.

Cheers

Well, well you can find some left over invits here at an external site (as mentined by chachoch . The exact URL for the page is

Regardings the invits which RxPG sent out to Bruno and Findjag, but not recieved by them, they will be reavailable to us after the 3 week time limit for them to join will expire. Hopefully we will resend them then.

Meanwhile google upto again something big? It is creating a social network called ORKUT (

) and one only join this network through an invitation. The clear motive of this network is not CLEAR. May be one day we will get an invitation and inform everyone about it also.

Till then lets watch this big boy (google) play these interesting games to monopolise the internet!

Of course, even I want an account but I know I would b among the bottom 7 as far as rxpg credits go! icon_sad.gif icon_cry.gif Rxpg, can u come to our rescue?


chachoch


I can invite you to ORKUT!
I must be amazingly trendy these days as I have been invited to ORKUT and have an account there! So if you want to try ORKUT out, I can alway invite you!!!

First review suggests it is good to be put on trial!

So who wants to be in?

Alernatives..
Even I have okrut invitations to give out. It is meant to meet people of similar interests. I didnít find it particularly interesting coz I donít really have enough time for it but I have many friends who are big-time fans of Okrut. About Trillian, I have the Pro version of it (2.013). If DON is interested, I can send it to you. May be you have already got it from Kazaa n by the way GMAIL is not the only way to increase your mailbox size to 2GB. You can try

They have currently stopped new registrations but they will soon open it again, so watch out for that. Even MSN is going to increase their mailbox to 250MB so everyone is gonna get their piece of cake n about Yah o o you will have already noticed that they are providing 100 MB.


Bruno


Hey, one orkut invitation for me......


anandkumar_m
Aim TNPSC

can i get one orkut invitation pls...


chachoch


I need e-mail addresses
To all those who want Orkut invitations, please send in there valid and current e-mail addresses.

And I surely want Trillian Pro. I've ditched KaZaa because it regularly hangs my system. So, if you can send it, send it to my Yahoo mail ID - chachoch (at) yahoo (dot) com. I'd be glad to use the pro version!

And jag, I'm not really bothered about space. It's the functionality of Gmail that amazes me. I can read through my inbox of 20 mails in under 10 minutes with the keyboard shortcuts. Add a few replies, it just takes around 15 minutes. In any other mail account, it would be approximately double the time.

Other plus points include:
  • No need to read your own mails posted to an e-group you subscribe to
  • Automatic hiding of the text of your message when the sender replies to your message using Re. button
  • Searchability. I'm already finding it very useful
  • Keyboard shorcuts again!


Another thing I noted, I'm not the only geek in here right! Trillian & multiple client messengers are not known to ANY of my friends in real life.

Also, I would like to know how many of you prefer Mozilla/Opera as a browser as opposed to the extremely devilish IE.

Cheers

With Gmail, Google will become a prime repository for personal profiles or life memories. Because many people wouldn't have to delete e-mail, they could potentially search for communications a year or two, or 10 in the past, with ease.

Gmail.
CLICKONLINE says :

There's a virtual war being waged in cyberspace, and it's going to benefit tens of millions of us. The battleground is e-mail, a service which, for many of us, virtually defines our online existence. Some of web's free emailers have been around for years, but this year promises to usher in a new era entirely.

It all started back on the first of April, with a release from the Google press office. Some thought Gmail was an April fool's joke but it most certainly wasn't and the implications could hardly have been more far-reaching.

This is to be a free service offering a full one gigabyte of storage, hundreds of times more than its rivals. It's enough to receive a quarter of a million emails, enough never to have to delete a message again.

Your emails will be organised completely differently, as "conversation threads" which can be fully searched for easy retrieval of messages.

But nothing comes for nothing. To pay for the service we'd have to accept not just banner ads, but targetted advertising based on keywords within our emails.

Privacy activists are fuming about the threat this represents - the thought of having our conversations permanently stored on Google's servers, and having them scanned, albeit by automated software programs.

Gmail is so controversial that legal moves were made in the US and Europe to stop Gmail dead in its tracks, although a compromise has now been reached - Gmail won't be allowed to collect personal data from users' emails and give them to third parties or produce records using the data.

In the meantime, its rivals are taking no chances. Yahoo!, one of the web's most popular email services, has now revamped its own offering, increasing the free storage from 6 megabytes to 100.

And of course, it didn't take long for Microsoft to react. Owners of Hotmail accounts will soon be able to enjoy 250MB of free storage, or 2GB for a fee.

Others are also determined not to be trumped by Gmail - Mac specialists Spymac matched the offer, and other, lower profile, sites have also joined the party, some giving away even more storage than Gmail, and without the controversial ad-scanning.

Some players though are taking a more measured approach, like web portal giants Lycos. They've enhanced their email service and added more free storage, but to get very large amounts you have to pay.

I will recommend

GMail: pros and cons
Let us have a look at GMail, the new on-line phenomenon unleashed by Google. Many on-line services contributed to the Net's current popularity. Among them, the web-based e-mail service that brought the concept of anywhere, anytime mail access to netizens holds a prominent position. The on-line mail service made popular by services such as Hotmail and Yahoo has played a major role in changing our communication methods.

A few months back, the popular search engine company Google floated the beta version of its web-based e-mail service GMail (https://gmail.google.com/) with many radical features. Recently this author had the opportunity to test this service thanks to an invitation from a generous netizen.

Here, we discuss some of its salient features and analyse the concerns expressed by privacy conscious netizens.

Apart from being quite fast to access and having a good user interface, the feature that sets apart GMail from its counterparts is the huge size of its mailbox. Unlike the usual size of 5-10 MB, Google is giving away a mailbox of size 1 GB for free. That is, your GMail box will never get full in your lifetime. In fact, unlike other mail services, Google does not want you to delete any of your mails.

Most free services place advertisements on outgoing mails. That is, when you send a mail, your recipient is forced to see advertisements from the mail.

But with GMail, it is the other way round: rather than with the mail recipients, the service loads its beneficiaries with advertisements. Also, the advertisements are generally text based and are not very distracting.

Another notable aspect of this service is that it allows you to append a custom string to your email id's log-in name part, using its `plus' addressing feature (http://notes.torrez.org/2004/04/plus_addressing. html). For example, while subscribing to a mailing list, say, Bootlist (http://www.bootdisk.com/bootlist.htm), you can sign-up with the service using the e-mail id [email protected]

This comes handy if you want to filter the mails according to some criteria.

Further, its `label' feature that lets you assign labels to the mails stored in the Inbox helps you organise your mails more efficiently. And, you have the GMail facility to assign stars to messages for getting more important mails displayed distinctly.

Yet another great feature of the service is the availability of the tried and tested Google search tool for searching the mail repository.

Privacy factor


Though GMail has many features offering several advantages, people concerned with privacy issues are not amused. Their major point of contention is about the method used by Google in pushing advertisements on to its users. To provide customised advertisements, GMail reads your incoming mail, analyses its content and displays advertisements tuned to the subject of the mail.

Privacy experts consider this `reading' of messages an invasion of privacy. But this fear seems exaggerated as, instead of by humans, the mail is read by a software system. In fact, this is possible with any other mailing service.

As the system has an enormous storage at its disposal, there is no need to clear your mail off it. However, you run the risk of some unwanted elements viewing them without your knowledge.

As mentioned in the `Terms of Use' (http://www.google.com/gmail/help/terms_of_use.html), to comply with a legal process, Google may disclose your personal details.

Another shortcoming of the service is the lack of POP support that prevents you from accessing mails with mail clients such as Outlook and Eudora.

GMail tips


Though the service is still not available to the public, many GMail help sites and forums have already sprung up on the Net. The blog, `GMail Gems' (http://gmailgems.blogspot.com/), the GMail tricks/tips site, GmailTips.com (http://g04.com/html/index.php), are some examples.

GTray


Another development connected with GMail is the emergence of several tools for helping GMail users access the service with ease. The free tool. GTray (http://torrez.us/gtray) that can be used to automatically log-on to your GMail account is one such product.

How to get a GMail account?


As already mentioned, GMail is in the test phase and the service is not yet open to all. To get an account, you need to get an invitation from a lucky one who has got a Google `invite.' The amazing rush for getting a Google account has led to the creation of an innovative `Google Invite' exchange service called GMail Swap (http://www.gmailswap.com/index.html) which enables a privileged GMail `invite' holder to swap it for something else.

Google appeared on the search engine scene quietly and conquered that market almost completely. Perhaps, with GMail having many innovative features, it may achieve the same in the web-based e-mail service segment also.

It seems other providers have already taken note of this possibility and started taking measures to keep their customer base intact. For example, Yahoo recently expanded its mailbox size to 100 MB and as per this report (http://news.com.com/Hotmail+to+offer+ 250MB+of+free+storage/2100-1032_ 3-5245523.html?tag=nefd.pop) appeared on News.com, Hotmail is also planning to expand its mailbox size.
