I have about 40 invitations so share.



Gmail is an online email account that offers 1Gig of online storage. It's a nifty way to send or receive big files if you need to.

Plus, you can keep all your correspondence in folders online where you can access them anytime, from any machine in the world.



Go to Gmail.com to find out more about it.

I have one. But sometimes it burps when you try to send really huge files.

A couple of weeks ago I did a 30 minute+ narration for a client in Japan, encoded as an .aif file. I couldn't, for the life of me, squeeze that file through the Gmail pipe. I wound up burning it to CD and shipping World Wide Express.

Holy cow-- a 30-minute AIF?

What was it-- about 50MB?



I guess that's a job for FTP, not Gmail, although I would hope it wouldn't choke on that.

More like 239MB! He was absolutely in fear of using any kind of FTP site. He kept saying none that he could find were geared to Mac users. I tried to explain that I have several clients on Mac systems and they've never had any problems with XDrive. It was to no avail. It was his directive to burn to CD and two-day ship to Japan at a whopping $55.

I use my Gmail to give to friends that insist on sending those types of e-mail that clog my other e-mail. You may enjoy this web site on the privacy of Gmail.



It's always good to have another account for ordering online or joining web boards. Smile

G-mail is supposed to work in older browsers now.



Did everyone who asked for an account get one?
