It looks like the changes recently made to Gmail broke functionality with the Gmail Notifier (at least for me). After a few hours of errors I tried re-installing it and everything works fine now. I am now running version 1.0.23.0 without issue. Get yours here.

I was beginning to wonder if GMail would ever add a contact manager but they finally did. It is somewhat limited but you can add as many phone numbers and email addresses as you want.
Now this is wow, I was waiting for this for a long time and finally there is a provider who is supporting email access using feeds and which can be read in a news aggregator. Gmail has done it again. Now one can receive Gmail email into RSS aggregators using ATOM feed.Now my Gmail account is still not updated and I cannot see this option yet, but I am excited by this news. Also looking forward to other options as shown by Nathan Weinberg on his blog. Some other related news can be found here. Tejas ...
It seems to me that everyone should have a GMail account by now but if you don't, send me an email. Please don't post your email here because I may not remember to remove it. I have 5 0 left.
I have 5 more GMail invites. These are free. Drop me a line.
Ok, for few months that I have been using Gmail, I never got any mail delayed messages nor any Mail failure messages. This morning all of a sudden I got a mail delayed message for a message that I send for more than 24 hours ago. I tried sending email to not valid email address and I got Mail Delivery failure message straight away. I have tried the same experiements before too, but did not get any mail failure messages than. This messages and step definately helps me to trust Gmail more than I did ...
Perhaps it’s a sign that I am getting old (although I really doubt that since I am along way from 30 and still play Counter Strike often). Recently I’ve been scouring the net for tweaks to products I use just to find ways of enabling features that I could really look forward to. The 2 on the top of my list are Outlook 2003 I’ve been looking for a tweak or a ‘How-To to create a view similarly to how GMail shows the inbox and emails stacked by conversations. And I don’t mean the default ‘Group by Conversations’ ...
I tried posting this a few days ago, but firewall issues at work prevented me from posting. A little about me: I'm a MCSD(.NET) & MCT. I work for a fairly big retail company (2700 stores) in the IT department. I'm president of the Roanoke Valley .NET User Group (RV.NUG) and I don't have any GMail invites. I've been playing with the Visual Studio 2005 beta, and I have to say it's pretty cool. I'll post more about that as I spend more time with it. I've also been writing my own roguelike game in VB.NET. ...
I have 6 Gmail invitations, please add a comment (including your email) and I will send the invitations to first 6 people who sent comments. Please do not contact/email me for invitations, only send a comment. One invitation per person please. Thanks & Have Fun P.S. Currently I do not have any invitations left, please do not post a message, when I have more invitations, I will announce here. FAS Community Forum Site Map ...
I have six Gmail invitations up for grabs but they aren't free. I want to hear stories of an IBuySpy/DotNetNuke/Rainbow/etc implementation you have done in a real world environment. I am even more interested in portals you have written to replace the previously mentioned apps and the approach you used. I will give the invites to the best stories. Email them to me or post them here. Sorry, all the Gmail invites are gone. Thanks for the stories ...
Yes, you can bid on billions of dollars and a Gmail invite from as less as $US 15. The dollars are Blogshares dollars that you can use to buy and sell shares, bonds, ideas and companies.RWO is selling billions of dollars of blogshare money on Ebay. Good idea if you want billions of dollars for just a nominal price. I am just getting there slowly, now playing with some 200+ million $B. Tejas Patel ...

Looks like GMail has recommenced having its ‘invite a friend’ feature. Regarding this, I have run into a point of saturation where there are invitations but no one to give them to.

Update: The invites are all gone for now. I'll post again later if I get any more.

Hi all,

I have two GMail invites available. If you want one leave me a comment or send me a message and I'll get them off to you. First come first serve.

GmailFS stands for 'Gmail File System'. “GmailFS provides a mountable Linux filesystem which uses your Gmail account as its storage medium. GmailFS is a Python application and uses the FUSE userland filesystem infrastructure to help provide the filesystem, and libgmail to communicate with Gmail. GmailFS supports most file operations such as read, write, open, close, stat, symlink, link, unlink, truncate and rename. This means that you can use all your favourite unix command line tools to operate ...

[Update: I just gave a way my last invite a couple of hours ago. However, in the last two hours, Google gave me 6 more invites. Who's up for one? ]

[New Update: I am now out again. ]

I have three gmail invites to give away. READ THIS: If you would like one of the gmail invites, please send an email to jolson88 AT gmail NOSPAM DOT com. The first three people to send me an email shall get the invites. Thanks.

If you need to get a hold of me directly (I know the contact form can be broken from time to time), you can email me at jolson88 AT gmail DOT com. Once I use it more and potentially start getting some invitations, I will most likely pass them out through this blog. Stay tuned....
Scoop from Neowin Fortunately for me I haven’t really gotten into the GMail groove, its been just another one of those mail servers on the web for me, but I have a lot o friends who rely on GMail as their primary email provider and they are pretty upset at loosing their email addresses if Google changes from GMail. Original article is here ...
I have been using Gmail for a month or so now and I like it. It takes some getting used to. I have two invitations if anyone is interested. The funniest two software engineer jokes gets em. Post them here or email them.
Karanbir Singh pointed me to a problem ( Gmail might say that it is intentional) that Gmail has with it's email system. Whenever we sent out email to non-existant Gmail email accounts from non Gmail addresses or even in Gmail address, we do not get any “Permanent errors” or “fatal error” messages back to the senders address which is normally the case. As per Karan, they store the emails.”What makes it quite interesting is that someone signed on as {username}@Gmail.com ...
Well, still no more gmail invites, as soon as I get them, I'll post. Got a great birthday present Saturday, the XM Roady. I pretty much picked it out, but my wife took care of getting it here. So far I am loving it, there's a few sections in my very wooded drive to work where it craps out for a second, but all in all the service is great, the equipment was pretty reasonable, and the channel line up is great. If you're looking for satellite radio, I think XM's the way to go if you live in New England. ...
Is Aventuremail serious about what offering of 2 GB mail service. After Gmail I think they were the first one to jump into GB email service and these guys don't provide one, but 2 GB of space! This will be useful only if people will be able to use even their email properly on Aventuremail account. The whole experience of using Aventuremail facilities has been a nightmare for me and for many others who have dropped by on my blog to tell us what their reactions were. If you read the comments on my ...
Larry Seltzer tries to use his IE after disabling ActiveX on his browser. I had tried this earlier before reading Larry's article and have to tell that I was not impressed with the results. After reading his article, I was again inspired to write about my experiences. All the rich content all of a sudden does not appear in the browser. How should I check my Gmail?, what about Channel 9 and above all, the MSDN library won't work without it. Try this and Channel 9 will appear all funny. Try some other ...
Tariq links me to Thimal's blog who created a script to get Gmail email in RSS feed, looks like my dream is coming true, I will be using it soon as soon as I get some time off this evening. Good work. Thimal, why does it need a web server? There is also a link to Gmail backup Script on this blog, but here it is http://ilia.ws/archives/15_... Tejas Patel ...
The Register reports anything but IE as Internet browser. Well that's good that some vulnerebilities are found and I am hoping that they will be fixed soon, but it is not that easy to ditch IE for that matter. Here are my reasons:- I don't mind using other Internet browsers and if I had to switch over to some other browser at this stage, I will switch over to Opera. The problem lies in the fact that most developers design their website keeping IE in mind the sites don't render in the way they were ...
My friend thimal has been succesfull in writing a php script that generates gmail notifications via RSS. Gocheck it out
OK, this is one of the many in one post. My friend Hitesh posted an invitation in Orkut Gujarati community for an invitation to Gmail and quite a few people replied and thus started an conversation on what Gmail is and few other things. 1) My friends at Orkut say that Gmail is making Fuss here is what I say:-”Google is not creating a big fuss about it, but actually people who are using it and loving and hating it are creating a big fuss. Also, people who don't have Gmail are creating a big ...
I read a lot of rumours these last couple of days that Hotmail is blocking Gmail invites, no this is not true by any means. True that sometime the email send from Gmail account land up in SPAM folder, but ooh, that's not counted as Hotmail's fault! I have myself tried it many times and invited few people on their hotmail account and it works like a charm for them. Oh yes, I am a bit upset becuase when my wife sent me three email from her Gmail account, it was sending it to the SPAM folder, until ...
Web Logging (or 'blogging') is a masturbatory inbred-hit-counting stroke-off. And the people that disagree with this are insane. At least, that's what I used to think. I was at the MVP Summit a while back talking with fellow MVP Bruce Johnson about blogging and he told me that he uses his blog as a place to record things that he didn't want to forget. Like something that took you ages to debug or figure out and you wanted to record the process so you could refer back to it. Keep it all in one place ...
OK, yesterday somebody on weblogs.asp.net or gwb pointed out PGtGM. Whoever it was I am really thankfull. Sorry for not remembering who it was. I saw the link yesterday opened it up in the browser and went home. So today I have no clue who linked to it, and a too lazy to go through the gazillion feeds looking to see who pointed it out. Again thank you for pointing that out. Anyways Thimal and I were musing today how we could get the GMail Notification into the Trillain mail notification Window. Basically ...
I had some problems using Gmail the other day, reported the bug, but never got an answer as to why that happened, I looked on the Internet and found an interesting forum that is pretty active as far as Gmail is concerned and they are discussing about some of the similar problems and other interesting stuff that I wanted to know about. The forum can be accessed at http://www.emailaddresses.c... Tejas Patel ...
I have to give *huge* thanks to Marcie. This weekend she spread a little more gmail love, going to the runners-up of her Gmail contest. I will do my best to get enough traffic to produce a couple invites. Dunno how long it takes or how it works, but I will be exclusively using my Gmail account for all my communications. So far it works great. I'm sure by now everyone knows all the features, but I have to say, the conversation feature of grouping emails is “BRILLIANT!”. I will post as ...
I wanted this tool. I loved 'Pop Goes Gmail' tool, although I don't want to set it up on my outlook in office but I will still like to get the notification when I receive email from one of my friends. The tool is called GTray and it gives you notification whenever you get email in Gmail account and when clicked also logs you onto Gmail account, now this is easy. Nice work done Author of this tool. Few of my requests:- Is it possible to intigrate into Trillian? Is it possible that we configure it ...
I have been using Yahoo! mail since 1995 (same email address the entire time). I also pay them $19.99 a year for things like a larger email storage box, POP3 access, etc. Though today, they bumped all their premium users up to 2GB of storage! Sweet. I guess because of competition to GMail from Google they did this and the great thing is that this won't have ads in it and won't be searched and indexed as GMail will be. Nice ...
I am late to the party here, but looks like I will be using more stable versions than others did. Now as I have started using more of my Gmail account, I wanted a tool that will fetch the email into by Outlook rather than visiting everyday manually. I had heard of a tool “Pop Goes the Gmail” when I did not have a Gmail account, I finally found the tool, installed it and can now check the Gmail account from my desktop without opening “Internet Explorer” as I don't use other ...
Whuuhh, my thoughts about Gmail account were right. Through out my day I had mixed reviews. Few of my friends to whom I forwarded the news that I have Gmail account to auction came back to me, some bidding money and while some offering me slabs of beer knowing that I am a non-alcoholic. Now the truth part, this Gmail auction thing was just a trial thing which I wanted to do and see what the responses were like. Although I was not going to take money from anybody, I wanted to see what public reactions ...
I have never taken any interests in auctions before nor I have been to many auctions. I think this time I have something to sell. I have an Gmail invitation to give out and I want to make some quick dollars out of it and I want to test that whether Gmail is that famous that people are ready to pay money for it or they are just interested in free invitations! Considering that people do pay for email accounts that have 25-50 MB space. The starting bid is $55 AUD. (Australian). Payments can be done ...
From Roy Osherove's weblog: GMail is annoying. In fact, it is very annoying. the “Wer'e cool” bunch have decided to “test” the service, and everyone is clamoring for a GMail account. Well, guess what Google? I just found a service which features: 1GM email (accessible through POP3) 100MB space for FTP and webdav access Some more stuff. All free. And it's available today. Don't be afraid of the name, either. It just means better graphics on the home page: Give SpyMac a try ...
Gmail crush is amazing. People are finding better ways to do the barter for an Gmail accout, I found a website called Gmail Swap through http://www.de-leau.com/ who linked to me before few days. I saw people swaping for bottles of liquor, australian boomerangs and even 10% of at a laundry!!. Amazing. Update:- There are few distributed here http://office.weblogsinc.co... which one can get after doing some hard work!! Tejas Patel ...
Brian posts on “Begging for Gmail accounts “. Yes he is right, people are begging for Gmail account or Orkut invite. I remember I requested an account (not begged) a few weeks ago and got gmail account from a kind person. While I reject all most all the request, I will like to take time and put my reasons for rejecting those requests. Quite a few people search on Google with the term “Orkut invite” and land up on my blog on this post.Some of them even contact me using the ...
OK, finally got my 2 GB email at www.aventuremail.com . Here are my experiences:- Registration is quite simple Non painfull process Extremely fast compared to some other webmail Preferences and Options-w0w get to do so many things here Address book can be imported and exported - I really like this feature I can add many aliases Has Calender features Has search functions 2 GB space MY BAD EXPERIENCES:- Cannot get any email!!!They have a lot of testing to do I think, I can send email OK, I hit send ...
Are u still waiting for your Gmail invite, don't worry then, now there is a service that offers 2 GB email service which is available to public too says publisher of Paidcontent.org blog. The website url is http://www.aventuremail.com but it's undergoing some surgery at the moment due to heavy traffic and should be back in 24 hours time. Will have to check it tommorrow. And my readers should rush too, incase they want to register a very specific username which might still be available. Tejas Patel ...
Guys I am happy, in the morning I cried about now having a Gmail account when half of my other blogger friends had one. I got an invite this afternoon from my Orkut friend Duncan Lamb whom I remembered inviting when he commented on my blog. I am impressed with the network and friends I am getting with the help of my blog. Cheers go to Duncan Lamb for it. His Orkut profile link is http://www.orkut.com/Profil... Now off to exploring more of Gmail. Tejas Patel (btw: blogging ...

Gmail users I am feeling left out as I don't have a Gmail account. I know sooner or later I will be there , but I am just getting impatient over it. Is there anybody that can send me a invite? I will be delighted.

Tejas Patel

My earlier entry on this topic got the most interest of anything that I've written on this as-yet young blog. Now that the Gmail vitriol has subsided somewhat, we are beginning to see some more rational evaluations of the future service. The best so far seems to be David Pogue's evaluation in today's New York Times. His article was expanded on by Robert MacMillan in his Filter column in the Washington Post. Both are recommended to be read carefully. For an opposite view, read Walt Mossberg's piece ...
While Gmail is in focus, I found SpyMac, which not only provides 1 GB of email space but also provides 100 MB of web space, Private and Public iCal Hosting, 250 MB of Picture Storage, Personal Blog, Forum and Gallery, Customizable Content Tracker & Community along with few other features and all of the above for no moneytory costs. Check it out for yourself. Tejas Patel ...
Buzz word for the last few days is Google's new Gmail. I will have to admit, since last three days, I go on Gmail's website 5-8 times a day just to check if Gmail is open to public or not. While I was thinking about how Google can pull all the information from our cookie, Orkut and Gmail together, Andrew Orlowski of Register crosses all the dots to show us the right picture or might become a reality someday. I am buying into Andrew's story here. Also thinking on the other side, who says that your ...
Update: ExtremeTech posted a great article on this subject by Jim Lynch that brings out even points than I do here. I like his point of assumed entitlement. Recommended. There has been a big flap over Google's announced Gmail product. The first big negative salvo I saw was Cynthia Webb's Filter column in the Washington Post. She gives the “privacy advocates” big ink on the purported “intrusion” into your email. The Gmail privacy policy is pretty clear on what Google will and ...
