There has been some questions concerning privacy with G-Mail. Ads targeted toward content of e-mails. Hmmm... Once I sent an e-mail to a friend from my Yahoo account giving her info. for MSN Messenger. Yahoo then sent me a e-mail to my MSN account for Yahoo Messenger. (Which I already had) Apparently my e-mails were being read somehow . I sent them an e-mail asking them what was going on, and they never replied. I may be naive, but that had never happened before and hasn't since. Oh and what are [Invites] ? Been researching them and people act like thay are the must have thing.

If you were accepted into the Google Gmail beta, they were sending users invites that they can give to friends or family to join the beta.

You may want to check out the attached link. It doesn't sound like it is worth the invasion of my privacy, especially considering all the free e-mail accounts out there.

I'm happy with the spell checker buit in to use for my e-mails. :thumbsup: You gotta love 1GB of storage. It's been less than a year now, since I had only 10 MB's at yahoo. :trumpet:

Due to "multi-tasking" I haven't even taken the time to explore it's full potential yet. I have 2 invites to pass along. The takers will then have 6 more each, themselves. PM me. :flowers:

BTW, I thank Shibby for passing the invite along to me.
