Better than Yahoo. Sleeker, cleaner, more user friendly. Luv Gmail.

Do you need an invite? I only have 86 left!

Love it, best thing out there. You can search through your mail just like you'd Google-search anything else, love gmail chat, love being able to sign into AIM via gmail while I'm at work, tons of space, spam filters are great, LOVE it. Do it!

I think it's out of beta so anyone can sign up now. Go for it.

I really like Gmail. I've had it for quite some time now and I find it to be very easy to use...I really like the chat option as well.

I've had Gmail for about four years now and out of all of the email providers I have had (hotmail, excite, yahoo, and some others that I can't remember) it is definitely my favorite. it archives your mail for you but it stays easy to find because you get to google search for it (it doesn't make your email public, it just googles through your archives).

Through gmail you can set up a page that has all your favorite RSS feeds, bringing everything you need to your homepage. Plus, you can get gmail alerts--a little icon lights up whenever you have mail

I would definitely recommend it. You don't need an invite anymore, you can just sign up.

Cool. I have a yahoo and I hate it. We're military, so getting email addresses through local providers sucks. I want one I don't have to keep changing. This sounds like it might be it.

yep, it's out of beta. the only thing i don't like about gmail is how they use labels instead of folders. you can attach labels to your messages as a way of keeping them organized, but they all still stay in your inbox. i like folders because they keep the number of messages in your inbox down so it's easier to find a message that you haven't "organized." oh well. i guess it can't be perfect.
