Gmail is a real pleasure to use - thanks to Yumpee Saar, I've had a Gmail account for a while now. It still lacks a couple of things and is not as customisable as one would have liked it to be, but it is still so much better than any other web-based email service I have seen. Like so many great innovations, it has so many neat and simple features that make you think "Why hadn't anyone thought of this before?". Nice. I have since had four opportunities to invite others and my wife, my sister, Kingshuk and Srikanth were promptly doled out these invitations.
