Cool, courtesy of a colleague (thanks Laura) I now have a Google email account. Now I just need to get some messages into the account to test out its features. It looks like that unless you’ve got loads of email there won’t be any obvious benefits over a regular webmail account. Has anyone got substantial data in their accounts and can they attest to the usefulness of Google Mail’s search and multiple labels features?

GMail me at ‘daviesda(at)’ obviously replacing the (at) with @ first – I don’t want to fill up my new account with spam just yet 😉
