    Google Mail Is Becoming Gmail In The UK

    Link: Google Mail is becoming Gmail in the UK - Official Gmail Blog

    Not sure how much it will benefit GoogleMail users as my Googlemail username already has a GMail equivalent:

    Me@GoogleMail.COM vs Me@GMail.COM

    As I am sure yours does also.

    It used to be gmail.com years ago, in the days you needed an invite you use the service. They then changed it for some reason or another.

    AFAIK, gmail.com has always worked for googlemail.com addresses, it has only been advertised, marketed and "officially" been googlemail due to the trademark issue.

    I've had a gmail account since the days of the invite, hadn't used it in years, then I got an Android phone and now it's slowly becoming my number one email address (I have about 5 that I hand out depending on how much I want people to contact me: my hotmail never gets checked )
