Gmail, aka Google Mail, offers free webmail. This Gmail review has information on the features and lab adds offered with Google's free webmail service referred to as Gmail or Google Mail. Read our other free webmail articles to see how Gmail compares.
Gmail, known as Google Mail in some parts of the world, is a relative newcomer to the field of free webmail services, having been first become generally available in February of 2007. One of the unique features of Google Mail is its connection to Google Labs, where you can try out new and interesting features and related applications. For example, consider the "Undo send" service, a boon when you have second thoughts about an email, but have already clicked the "Send" button. For more about what Google offers in the area of free webmail, read on.
Google's free webmail has some very attractive features:
Labs adds a whole lot more, for example:
Google does not carry the harsh language about terminating your account at any time for any or no reason or for not visiting as frequently as they demand, like some other free webmail services. However, be aware that - unlike some other free webmail services, who claim rights in your content only to display it to those to whom you choose to have it displayed and who give up those rights when or shortly after you terminate service, Google makes broader and longer claims, saying, "By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive licence to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. This licence is for the sole purpose of enabling Google to display, distribute and promote the Services and may be revoked for certain Services as defined in the Additional Terms of those Services." The key words are perpetual, irrevocable, and promote. Google can use your content forever, and can use it to promote Google. That's worth a moment of reflection before signing up. [Note: Google misspells license in their Terms of Service, which is why you see it here as it is.]
