That is if the public gets to share that one account...The link you followed to create a Gmail account has already been used to create an account for [email address removed]. Now, its account creating powers are all gone. To create another Gmail account, you'll need a shiny new account creation link. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Looks like the link was not to an actual story, per se, but to an invite... this thread should probably be whacked, or relinked to an actual story about how Gmail's open to the public.dotdotdot said:Somethings weird... its not available? And its a link to a used invite...
pilzbury said:Actually If you go to www.google.com you may have a chance to sign up. I just was on google and saw the link below the search box. It is supposedly picking at random to who can get it. Probably if your on a Mac using Safari and Firefox I would assume you have more of a chance than on a Win Machine using IE. But that is my speculation. I have gotten one link on Safari and one on Firefox so far. Not sure about Camino. Haven't tried that. Try hitting refresh a couple times. It me a demographics thing as well based on your iP.
Soft launch? If they put out a big press release, their servers could get slammed pretty fast. This way, word leaks out slowly and they don't get hammered quite so badly.PlaceofDis said:cool, thanks for posting jsw
hmm, wonder why no big announcement?
understandable, but considering the big deal they made when they first created it.....and the fact that they are a public traded company now i would think they would want to make a big splashclayjohanson said:Soft launch?

I didn't have a problem. Did you make sure that you enabled POP access in your account settings? As long as you follow there directions it should work. I don't have a problem.Also on the subject, I tried to set up Gmail as a POP account in Mail in Panther. The HELP section said it is possible, even had screenshots on what to do, but it didn't work. Anyone else set this up successfully?
