I remember 3 years ago gmail in the uk had to change to googlemail, but having just created a new one, I log in and it says at the top [email protected]

Does anyone know the current situation regarding gmail in the uk as I would prefer to use @gmail.com, however I don't want to risk using it in printed material and find at a later date @gmail doesn't get to me.

If you sign up for an account today, it'll be @googlemail.com

I still get mail through gmail. I think that even if they change they recognize the old address.

I've been with Yahoo for many years. I still use my .com address even though uk addresses have been yahoo.co.uk for a long time

Yes, I think CiG is right. The early adopters got gmail, now it is googlemail.

BTW, are you aware of GMX.com (google it). I mention it because I use it more than any of the others now. I think it is really good, better than all the rest. Try it and see what you think.

Google have a problem in UK and Germany re the use of gmail as somebody claims that they are infringing their copyright. Until case resolved google use googlemail in these countries.
However if e-mails are sent to you as either googlemail or gmail they will be received OK
