With much thanks to DataGridGirl for sending me an invitation, I now have a GMail account which I will be using for my various mailing lists and other purposes.

My first read on the interface is that I absolutely love the threading and labeling features.  I knew GMail would be a fit after I heard the system described because I am a fanatic user of search folders in Outlook 2003, so a mail system powered by the finest search engine in the world was a sure thing.

If you haven't checked out Marcie's blog, you really should.
