I recently heard about Gmail. A new email service from google.com. But since the news was out on April 1st I was a little skeptical in the beginning. But it looks like the rumours are true. There indeed is a gmail in beta at the gmail.com.
The mail service seems to be promising. With 1GB of storage space for your mails, you may never have to get another free email account on the web. There are some issues about privacy thouhg. The mail service scans your mail to create targetted text based ads according to your current mail subject.
