Disadvantages: Google owned!
Gmail or Google Mail is another attempt by the biggest name on the web to take total control.
Gmail has been around for many years and I have been a user for at least 2 years. When GMail was first released it was only avaible by invite only, which made it very intriging. So I asked and asked and finally I recieved an invite and soon realised why everyone was raving about it.
Gmail is great as it is able to store a lot of emails, so there is never any need to delete any of your old emails. I have yet to delete an email from my account (apart from spam) and I doubt I ever will have to! The application is also great as it is extremely easy to use and is fab at organising emails into 'conversations' so it is easy to keep up to date with whats going on without having to keep searching.
The service is also great as it is very good at filtering spam. I have never received any phising or spam emails in my inbox since I first used Gmail which no other service has been able to do. I hate spam so this is an important feature for me!
Google are great at giving the public what they want and this is another success from them. Before Gmail most web users used MSN but google have managed to take away a lot of their customers.
Gmail has also been involved in many April Fools Day jokes, where google have advertised new programs like Gmail Paper and Gmail Custom time which are services which are absurd but have been belived by many.
I love using Gmail and would definatley reccomend it to anyone!
Summary: Nearly there!
