Google Offers E-mail
Posted 31 March 2004 - 10:15 PM
Any way google is surely acting like those dot com companies of 2000 that offer freebies to build user base in the end they vanish off the radar.

How does the amount of space they offer have anything to do with how much spam they will receive? Spammers don't check the size of the inbox before they send.
If they think offering 1 gb free space for mail account they will get bombarded by spamers and pain of managing their servers will be hard to keep up.
As long as they have a good spam filter, which it's been reported they will, spam won't be anymore of a problem for them than it is for anyone else.
The reports I've read show that they have been developing the mail service in response to what their users not want - larger, but more manageable e-mail accounts. Integrating their search technology into e-mail in genius.
MSN and Yahoo have both offered free e-mail for a long time. Did they vanish because of it? Hardly.

http://www.google.co...srel/gmail.html - like that is a legitimate release!!
http://www.google.co...MP_results.html - A version froma while ago.
Google reaches out to the software developer community with the Google Web APIs service, which enables programmers and researchers to develop software that accesses billions of web documents as a resource in their applications. PigeonRank, an April's Fools play on our own patented PageRank technology, is revealed on the Google home page. Google's founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, are named to InfoWorld's list of "Top Ten Technology Innovators" and Google wins an M.I.T Sloan eBusiness award as the "Student's Choice."
So sorry, no 1 GB free email just yet, methinks!!! (i could be wrong... we'll all see!!!)

So it will entice lots of user to switch or create new account at google. Most will forward their new email address to everyone and bingo Spamer will get in action.
Yahoo and hotmail offer 4 MB to 6 MB storage per account and most of the time those account get filled with SPAM fast and rest of the mail get bounced back. with google's new 1 GB free storage spamers, do not have to worry about email getting bounced back. As for the spam filters to catch up with spamer's new trick is still not sophisticated.
As for my personal experience i get about 20 Spam for every 1 useful email with top 100 spam address blocked by domain name and updated every few weeks to top of this with active spam filter.

Ssshh, Vijay. You are not suppossed to reveal the joke. If people are like me, they never know what day it is anyway. There will be many who will believe this or at least scratch their heads trying to figure it out.

Especially this news is interesting,
Confusingly, Google issued a jokey April 1 press release announcing the email service, headed: "Search is number two online activity - email is number one: 'heck, yeah,' say Google founders".
The release goes on to quote co-founder Sergey Brin as saying that "while developing Gmail was a bit more complicated than we anticipated, we're pleased to be able to offer it to the user who asked for it". Nevertheless, the email offering is real.
Analysts said that Google could shake up the free email market, which is led by Yahoo with 52.6 million unique users a month in the US, according to a February survey by online research firm comScore Media Metrix. Hotmail is next, with 45.4 million users, while AOL has 40.2 million paying users.
I still cant believe one thing, Google giving 1 gb free storage, Lets wait till April 2nd to find out,
