Anyone want a Gmail invite?

Anyone want a Gmail (Google email) account? I have been a beta tester for them and occasionally get invite to give away. I have 6 right now, and Gmail is not yest open to the public. In the interest of fair representation, there have been some security questions about Gmail, but don't know how they were answered. I can tell you that I've never had any trouble. I've been using them since 2 weeks after the first accounts were opened.
I have a thread on the other message board I frequent. I will give the first 6 people who email me at eramsey@gmail.com an invite - anyonw ho would like to have an account may message me. I may also be able to weasel another 1 or 2 invites out of my old man.

Two down, four left.
For those who may not know, the accounts come with 1000 MB of storage. For me that's the biggest advantage.

I've got 6 new ones too. Looks like this marketing scheme/beta test/etc. has been a whopping success!

I've got plenty (six) as well. Are they testing the system for large amounts of people or what?

No, I think it's pretty close to being offered to the public. Initially only a few accounts were offered, then after each account has been open for a time, that person gets several invites to give away. There are exponentionally more active accounts than there were a few months ago. This is my second batch of them. I think they're giving away a number of invites with each new account now.

Comcast gives me 1.75GB of email storage and 175MB of personal storage.

Before we moved back in the spring, we had Comcast; now we have Charter. :P

And you're welcome, BaZ.
