Yay, I got an gmail account!
Friday, 1 October 2004
One of things the sfx team thought up for promoting Firefox was to give away gmail accounts to people who place ‘Get Firefox’ buttons or banners on their websites. As you can see on the frontpage of this website I also have such a button, but I also placed buttons on other websites I created.
About an hour ago I received an email with my gmail acount information
Dear SFX User, We looked over your Gmail application and it has been approved. The information you need to know is: Activation URL: http://gmail.google.com/gmail/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To begin using your account simply click on (or copy/paste) the link in your browser. Fill in the simple form and enjoy Gmail! If for some reason you no longer need/want this invite please foward this message to email@example.com with "RTN" in the subject line. Keep spreading the fire! SFX Gmail Project Team
So, the next couple of days I will be looking closely at gmail. I’ll probably write something about it soon. My gmail account is firstname.lastname@example.org.
BTW, if you want a gmail account, head over to spreadfirefox.com and place one of their buttons on your website. Then apply for the gmail giveaway.
