    I do.. its the best place to redirect spam mail to, as gmail have a very powerful spam filter that stores most of the rubbish.

    I don't really use it, but I have a nice personalized Google Home page now, with OSNN News goodness along with others.

    I am slowly going from Hotmail to Gmail because I know that Google has 2+GB of space compared to Hotmail 250MB. Although I am a current beta user of the new msn hotmail thing that let's you have 2GB of space...I know that once beta version goes Ill be back to 250mb. Gmail will always have a large disk space for people's emails - and I can only see their service to get better and better.

    I'm still getting used to the 'Labels' though....I wish it was folders rather than labels. The Inbox seems to be so crowded, and because I am a person who likes things to be very neat, sometimes I get a little annoyed with the layout/use of labels. Nevertheless, I'm a Gmail fan all over. :)

    Agreed on the labels.

    The 2 GB of space is being put to get use. It collects SPAM when I sign up for stuff online ;) Most gets filtered out - but it means I can check it once a week, or once a year !

    I have one, but I only use it as a backup store. Prefer using my university email address and my personal one (on my own domain) with Outlook, but I just forward copies of all incoming messages to my Gmail account for storage/backup.

    I have one. Use it for some things, but use my own domain as my main account.

    Looking forward to the chat feature being enabled for more people, could come in quite handy.

    yeah well i emailed them about it, so i guess if enough people complain about it something will be done, so just click on help when in your gmail account, then click on contact us and feature request
