A thread at WebmasterWorld named Still using GMail? has posts by gmail users that talk about whether or not gmail is still as hot as it was when it was first release. The thread creator said "Now that the hype around gmail has died down, are we still using GMail? I used it for a while, sent out some invites to friends, now i don't use it at all anymore."
Here are some of the responses:
Gmail is refreshing. It's just like chat window.
I'm still using it at the moment.
I think i'll be using it for a long time.
Gmail beats any other service hands down IMO (and it's in beta!).
Got the invite but never used it.
I redirect all my email from several other email accounts for storage and lightning fast search.
I personally use it for spam or communication about gmail invites. Since I use a laptop and my pop server has a Web based mail version (if needed), and since I have unlimited space at my domain name, I do not use gmail that often.
