Can anyone help me in listing the advantage of gmail. Also why does gmail require an invite?

it requires an invite right now because it's still in beta.

as far as advantages vs. disadvantages... it depends on whom you ask. I'm not saying i agree or disagree with any of this...

1) given that much storage, you never need to delete an email
2) you can use googles search technology to search all your emails
3) ads will be inserted into your email that target your likes/dislikes
4) i assume they back it up, so you will never LOSE an email
5) it's free
6) you can access it from just about anywhere, quite easily.

It looks to me like they've done this less out of testing and more to avoid a "slashdot" effect. Rather than deal with an initial rush of users, they can scale up the servers based on normal use.

BTW, I have a couple of invitations I can send out. Let me know if someone here would like one.

Some Gmail tricks:

Example:
"Send mail to fellow Gmail'er by just entering their username in the TO, CC, or BCC spot. No need to include @gmail.com "

Good day folks,

Can you send me 2 invitations?
Don't want to seem greedy but I need one for myslef, and with a few sites I am running one for webmaster issues. Can you send me a Private Message, or do I have to post email addresses? Don't want to publish emails, spam bots have been pretty nasty lately.

Thanks
Adios

IMO: You just need one account, you can send a lot of mail out of your account, then use your invites for your second one in the future!
