Someone asked me for a Gmail invitation this morning. So if any else wants a free Gmail invite, please send me a personal message or email or simply respond to this thread.

Happy Thanksgiving,

It is still exciting for me to find a post here once in a while about something I don't know about. Yet.

What the freak is a Gmail invitation?

The last time I heard, Gmail was another of those free email services for deadbeats that don't want to pay $2 a month to a real ISPs for their own accounts etc.

Ha ha! Just kiddin! How obsolete that pseudo-observation is: I know that even the owner of this site uses that type of email service; It's just too late and I'm just too old to go for those. I pay BellSouth for a V90 connection to the Internet (that I don't use except for the ebox; I use Adelphia's cable service for serious high speed).

So what is this invitation all about anyway? To have sexz with Cristina Aguilera maybe? Because she just got married... Ha ha!

You can't sign up for a Gmail account without being invited by someone who has an account.

In theory this has something to do with it being BETA still. Obviously at one point you could get an account (otherwise who would have the invites to start)... but for some time now you can only get an account through an invite.

As webmail type systems go I kind of like GMail which I use as a secondary account.

The need for gmail invites kinda fizzled when googled opened the flood gates. I remember when I was only allowed 2 invites. Now it is a 100 invites. Furthermore, google seems to send these invites to anyone who uses google enough.

In any case, I like that they still uses invites. It makes it hard for spammers to use gmail to make disposable email accounts, as you need an email account to get invited to gmail.

Surprisingly, people are still asking for Gmail invitations. It could be attributed to the fact that capacity currently stands at 2,669 MB.
