Gmail está enviando invitaciones...

No debería escribir en el blog porque estoy enfermo, con un trancazo del quince, que me tuvo postrado la tarde de ayer (hasta las siete o las ocho, no recuerdo bien) y la mañana de hoy. Pero creo que esto de lo que voy a hablar es una noticia bomba.
Gmail está enviando invitaciones.
—¿Qué? ¡Claro que Gmail envía invitaciones! A mí me llegó una hace unos meses, firmada por un tal josemoya.
No, no. No sé si el título lo deja claro. Gmail está distribuyendo invitaciones a aquellos que enviaron, en abril del año pasado, la "petición" de información sobre Gmail (la mía me acaba de llegar). ¿Qué significa eso? Para quienes tienen su invitación desde hace tiempo, como yo, la obtuve (más o menos) en mayo del año pasado a través de blogger, quiere decir que es probable que Gmail deje de ser beta.
Para quienes no tengan su invitación (¿pero cómo? ¿no conoceis a nadie con cuenta en gmail? ¡Si somos cientos! ¡Si a todos nos sobran invitaciones!) quiere decir que ya pueden obtener una.

Gmail seems to be distributing invitations to those desperated people that clicked the "I want more info" link of gmail in early april, 2004. I have mine. Gmail team excuses for the patience of the requesters, and they do right: because I got it first from blogger than I did from Gmail. Astonishing? Not really. The same thing happened with my EU Constitution hardcopy...

PS. It *could* be a phish, but source of message seems to be OK.

Subject: Gmail Update and Invitation

Hi there,

Thanks for signing up to be updated on the latest Gmail happenings. We hope it's been worth the wait, because we're excited to finally offer you an invitation to open a free Gmail account! Just click on this link to create your new account:
Since last April, we've been working hard to create the best email service possible. It already comes with 1,000 megabytes of free storage, powerful Google search technology to find any message you want instantly, and a new way of organizing email that saves you time and helps you make sense of all the information in your inbox.

And here are just some of the things that we've added in the last few months:

- Free POP access: Take your messages with you. Download them, read them offline, access them using Outlook, your Blackberry or any other device that supports POP

- Gmail Notifier: Get new mail notifications and see the messages and their senders without having to open a browser

- Better contacts management: Import your contacts from Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, Outlook, and others to Gmail in just a few clicks. Add phone numbers, notes and more. Even use search to keep better track of it all.

We also wanted to thank you. For showing us your support and for being so patient. And to those who have already signed up for Gmail, thank you for giving it a try and for helping us make it better. Our users are what have made this product great. So whether you're just signing up for your account or you've been with us since the beginning, keep letting us know how we can build you the best email service around.

That's it for now. We hope you like Gmail and will share it with your friends. We've got lots of cool new stuff planned and we can't wait for you to see our work in your Gmail accounts! Stay tuned...

The Gmail Team
