    But in the UK you get a googlemail.com address rather than the snappier gmail.com. Something to do with a trade mark infringement.

    No, Pat_C. I thought that as well recently but if you register [email protected] any mail sent to [email protected] will still turn up in the same account. It just seems to be a preference for google to try and highlight their name.
    I think they've changed it back to gmail again.

    I can confirm this is correct, I hardly used mine because I wanted the @gmail.com address but got @googlemail.com, only someone told me the above and I have been using happily since. :)

    Thanks, I hadn't realised that. I just tried it and it works as you suggest.

    Google themselves say that it is a trademark issue, and that they are still pursuing it with the courts and the trademark office.

    I see that they won't allow you to change the 'send from' address to @gmail.com though, but they do for the reply-to address.

    I'm sure when I registered one last week it had reverted back to Gmail. Unless Google had stopped the set up page detecting your IP address so it was up to the user to state whether they were in UK or not, as a kind of 'get round'. Hmmm...

    Maybe I'll invite myself to get a new gmail account and see what happens.

    Matt, I'd be careful sticking your email address in full on ANY forum, they're full of nutters did you not know that :)

    Edit>Just a hotmail account phew :)

    Thanks themoid :smashin:

    Edit :

    Sorry, but how do I access the invite - there is nothing in my emails, I've checked the junk folder but nothing there either.

    Edit:

    Email now received, gmail account activated. Cheers
