    You should have an invite, just watch that Hotmail haven't blocked it.

    They eventually appear above your messages - more you use Gmail the more invites you get I think.

    Google seem to have cleverly hyped the launch so invites are like gold dust, and of course having Google's searching power might be useful, but they do place ads relating to the content of your messages on the screen.

    So let me get this straight, you get that unavoidable spam, you know the explicit stuff, which you do your best to delete, but no you'll also get banner ads relating to it as well.

    Just more crap for you to ignore

    Heh, I've got exactly two messages in my account - one from the person who invited me and one thank you for my invite message

    That's pretty much all it will be used for I think - I've enough domains and space ta (although I don't think I've as many domains as you Richard )
