Gmail rollout -- finally

I think I'm officially the only person who doesn't have a gmail account yet, and today I got an email from the Gmail team inviting me to sign up. I'd given them my email address to be notified of future updates quite a while ago.

Anyone else getting these?

for the record, I'll probably never use it anyway.. last thing I need is ANOTHER email account to monitor, guard against spam, etc...

However the POP access thing makes it interesting

Hi there,

Thanks for signing up to be updated on the latest Gmail happenings. We hope it's
been worth the wait, because we're excited to finally offer you an invitation to
open a free Gmail account! Just click on this link to create your new account:

<link removed>

Since last April, we've been working hard to create the best email service
possible. It already comes with 1,000 megabytes of free storage, powerful Google
search technology to find any message you want instantly, and a new way of
organizing email that saves you time and helps you make sense of all the
information in your inbox.

And here are just some of the things that we've added in the last few months:

- Free POP access: Take your messages with you. Download them, read them
offline, access them using Outlook, your Blackberry or any other device that
supports POP

- Gmail Notifier: Get new mail notifications and see the messages and their
senders without having to open a browser

- Better contacts management: Import your contacts from Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail,
Outlook, and others to Gmail in just a few clicks. Add phone numbers, notes and
more. Even use search to keep better track of it all.

We also wanted to thank you. For showing us your support and for being so
patient. And to those who have already signed up for Gmail, thank you for giving
it a try and for helping us make it better. Our users are what have made this
product great. So whether you're just signing up for your account or you've been
with us since the beginning, keep letting us know how we can build you the best
email service around.

That's it for now. We hope you like Gmail and will share it with your friends.
We've got lots of cool new stuff planned and we can't wait for you to see our
work in your Gmail accounts! Stay tuned...

The Gmail Team

I got one of these on Thursday. Never been keen on web based mail, and Opera's M2 has a lightning quick search as well, so never bothered to try and get a Gmail account before. I guess I must of signed up for news at some point in the past, but can't remember it.

Not only did I go and set up and account (curiousity more than anything), I also noticed today, that I've got 50 invites I can use.

With invitations being thrown about all over the place, I can't see that they can call it a BETA much longer can they?
