      Question

      by oz_media ·

      What is the maximunm attachment size allowed?

      I need to email a few fairly large files (up to 200MB) and don’t want to FTP them this time for personal reasons.

          In reply to Last one’s all yours

          You’ll soon realize Oz, that there is no such thing as a last one. Gmail invites are a plague. I gave a few of mine away about half a year ago, and they just don’t stop coming. You’ll never get rid of those pesky little buggers… you’ll just learn to ignore them. You can give away all six… a week later, you’ll have six more.

        • #3328020

          Yeah I know they regen

          by oz_media ·

          In reply to Last one?

          I used up all my current invites though. I actually have 3 accounts for different uses so I got a whack of them up front.

          by oz_media ·

          In reply to G on the way (again) :-)

          When I signed up, there was a invite 4 friends link in the top right of the mail window.

          Someone else I signed up didn’t see it.

          People that FIRST signed up were asked to invite 20, then 12, then 6 etc.

          I think they are just trying to control/test initial sign-up rates, server loads etc. as it is still Beta at this time.

      by faith_michele ·

      The limit is 1000 MB of storage and you can search your messages, which I think is really neat. Also, the spam filter is really good.

      Here is the link for more information on gmail-

      This is actually pretty funny

      by oz_media ·

      Yesterday a company spammed ads on TR and was just lambasted for it.

      A week ago, someone offered free recruiting advice, and was just lambasted for it.

      Before that we had people advertising password hacks, and they were also lambasted for it.

      Advertising and marketing just doesn’t fly on TR, period!

      So then Google has new beta users test an email system and market it in pyramid fashion to spread the word. And everyone is lining up in droves and advertising/marketing it for them, myself included of course, people are happy and thankful for THIS particular adveryising on TR.

      Tough crowd or what!?

      Just found it amusing. 🙂

        I love the way that a thread picks up and loads of people start going on it, shooting us up to HOT2. BVut this is great, and im sure everyone will agree that it is really great layout and space- ive got 260 emails and i’ve used 1%!!

        by jdclyde ·

        In reply to This is actually pretty funny

        Makes a big difference on how it is approached and why.

        With the head hunter, if he wouldn’t have been such a tool would have been better received. Between his e-mail and his typing, he had nothing of value to offer us.

        And the movers even weren’t too bad until after about the tenth posting or so in a purely spam format and mentality.

        By the way, have I told you about the widgets I make?

      current gmail transfer laws

      by rob_serve ·

      New Legislation:

      The changes are designed to deter people from creating multiple e-mail accounts with the purpose of reselling or trading them, according to a source at the company. The policy alterations do not target people trying to barter Gmail invitations, which allow people to sign up for a new membership.

      So I think we’re okay here.

          I did use it to transfer some large file to a band the other day. I just like the upload size. Then they just log in to the same account on the other end and can download larger files without me using FTP to my own sites.

          I’m still using my other online account for my general mail though and my residential mail without POP setup.

      Share files, this is a cool

      by hotchile ·

      Hi Oz,
      Share files, this is a cool. Do you know if you could do this on other email accounts and would they be encrypted on G or others?
      Skype have a file transfer option which is also pretty good.
      Just send it over with Skype file transfer. It?s secure and encrypted like the rest of Skype, and handles files of any size.
      Kind Regards

        In reply to Share files, this is a cool

        Encryption doesn’t matter. Just promo and graphics for a benefit gig in London by a bunch of bands to support the Tsunami relief effort. But large tiff files that couldn’t be sent through standard email channels,and as I said, I usually FTP them from my site, but this is easier on their end.

      Edit your posts after you get your account

      by jdclyde ·

      Don’t forget about the spiders looking for e-mail accounts (as OZ pointed out in another string about posting with e-mails for account names).

      After you get your invite, go back in and edit your requesting post and XXX out your e-mail address.

      There is a ring in hell reserved for spammers.

        i think your’e forgetting the gmails superb spam filtering!
        also dont forget that you should download gmail notifier (its official gmail) which alerts you when you get an email (not spam though) which is really useful.

          Posting your email address here to ger a GMAil sent out is the problem. Spiders will pick it up and sell you out to spam lists, as well as everyone else in your address book.

          In reply to Suprised you didn’t post this first

          I use an online account for ANYTHING where I am registering or sharing email online.

          They junk most mail for you automatically and the rest takes just seconds to check off and sumbit as spam. So I have no issues using my online account here. Let the spammers have it, it isn’t my personal account and it isn’t my server or hard drive storage, I couldn’t care less what is sent there.

          by oz_media ·

          In reply to I’ll contribute

          I have been amazed that GMail is rocket fast. I have a 5 meg connection at home and Sat while on the road and in both it has been so fast it is no different than THunderbird, in fact faster sometimes.

          I have transferred and emailed 12- 15 meg files with ease, it’s been no problem speewise.

          As fo rthe 4-6 weeks, I also think that’s not set in stone.

          One of my accounts got 6 right away then 4 teh minute they were gone. Another account I have NEVER got any invites at all, even at the start. And yet my third GMAIL got four to begin with and two days later 4 more. So the 4-5 weeks issue doesn’t prove true in my case either.

          Perhaps these are thngs you noticed with YOUR account and therefore cannot conclude that’s the way it works?

      Cheeky request

      by zazelle ·

      I’ve already received a gmail account for myself from this thread but after boasting to my husband about it last night, (well it was a slow day) he wants one too.

      He’s an accountant rather than a techie but he had heard about gmail ‘cos he sits near the network admin guy at work.

      He’s a very nice husband, a great cook and he does carry my laptop to the train station for me. His only real fault is that he never finishes decorating jobs.

      What do you think? Does he deserve one?
      If you think yes please send the invite to me – jillsamsuk@yahoo.co.uk and i’ll see it up for him.

          On the way Aardvark.

          As for robeent, I don’t thoink it’s a mass scam. People are offering to take the time to send an email to a stranger that offers them a valued service.

          They then take time to check for new requests and then post that an invite has been sent.

          Certainly no great feat my any means, but to say plese or thank you is only being courteous or polite. It’s not like we are given thm cash or something though. 🙂 (I haven’t found THAT thread yet!)

        It seems most of these recent requests are form new TR signups. Possibly someone has pointed to this thread OR it has been indexedon a search engine already and people are ending up here.

        No profile completed, no participation anywhere just a hand held out. NO peer contact active or anything.

        You may want to check profiles before helping out and offering your time to names that don’t intend to become site participants, just an observation.

          When you open a post, the member photo, location etc. is shown including the Member Since date by month and year. Sitzin Willie: Member since November 2004.

          When you see Jan.2005 it should raise an eyebrow.

          Example, the next post, kumaran123 or whatever.
          Member since Februaqry 2004. “I want one please”
          No user profile, no Discussion Center activity, No Technical Q&A support and a Hotmail address for an alias?
          Somehow I don’t think I have the time, sorry.

          Then you notice such thinkgs as (like in YOUR profile tsk tsk) that you can’t click on the person’s alias and visit thier peer information page in the peer directory. Notice mine is a blue link.

          THese TWO issues coupld with the fact that the person usually has NO other discussion activity, NO activity in Technical Q&A etc. is a pretty good indication of someone signing up to rant in a discussion or someone looking for a quick Tech Q&A answer, with not intention of tryint to help others or in THIS case, someone has been told there are gmail invites here.

          This isn’t going to be dead accurate, a tru newbie could honsetly be looking to join TR and participate but simply is new.

          Another such as some people you see here, nw sign ups that have posted two or three times randomly
          in the discussion, indicating they are used to the forums where you post all over until noticed.

          You’ll get four or six invites, then four or six more then….you get the idea.

          Here’s an idea, give me your emil address!!!

          You can leave it on line with a few spaces in it, so web crawlers don’t pick it up and spam you, OR… you can send it to me via peer mail, click on my alias/link and it will take you to the peer message page. (Then I can spam you !! 😀 )

          Damn, no post that I now make to you can contain a single typo! Foot shot in the myself. As for spam – if I receive spam from your direction I will form an alliance with Max and then you’ll be sorry!

          by oz_media ·

          In reply to Oz: emil address, indeed

          You use peer mail to send me an email address for the account. Once I get that, I can send you an invite from a link in my GMail account.

          If the email address needed will be different, no problem. You will in turn get seemingly endless numbers of invites also and can pass one on as needed.

          The issue with jumping on the bandwagon now is that you have a better chance of securing a name you want.

          You know all those plonkers with hotmail accounts like bob3445728142341234@hotmail.com?

          THEY missed the boat! 😀

          As for an alliance, nothing new.

        In reply to not from me

        I think I can pass what is required after all my official position here is “Alleged Boss and Official Scape Goat!”

        That at least got a laugh out of the girl from MS who rang me today with a survey about their products.

          Who are you

          In reply to You can put my name down for one

          We have been discussing not offering addresses to noobs who just sign up for a gmail, never to be seen again.

          From what I understand, you haven’t put in your time here and don’t really warrant asking for anything.

          Actually Colin, I’m all out now, I thought I had a few.

          Neil is looking for one too, hope someone can help you and neil out though.

          Anyone else who may be reading this that doesn’t yet know HAL9000, I am just joking, he deserves two!

          OK you two

          In reply to He may deserve two, but…

          Do you both know you are as bad as each other? 😀

          I’ll just sit back and laugh like the rest of you do but I do love the way I’m told “Send me your e-mail address and then the people are not contactable through the Peer Listings!” Maybe it’s a glitch as I actually haven’t looked to see if I’m still contactable through there.

          Col 🙂

          What the hell are YOU on about?

          by oz_media ·

          In reply to OK you two

          You have my email address! My link is active as far as I know, I got two peer mails through the site today.

          Give your head a shake, mate! Get some sleep!

          😀

          There should be a way of temoporarily banning people who need sleep. 😉

          As for mrafrohead, you’re right we definitley don’t make good adversaries. You should have seen the first few times we crossed paths, we fought like cats and dogs for ages.

          Then after a break I realized how funny the guy really is and that he’s more of a blast than I had first thought, now I find we agree more than disagree and even a disagreement is good for a laugh.

          Just curious how you found TR, it seems this thread is indexed by search engines. Did you get here from a websearch?

          In reply to How did you find this thread

          Well a search did get me here. But it had nothing to do with Gmail. I was seeing if I could find out how popular Mozilla Firefox was getting. I have been a user and fan since 0.6(when it was Firebird). I ran across a Tech Republic article and decided to check out the forums. I ran across this Gmail thread and a few other threads that caught my interest. So I decided to join up.

          In reply to Interesting story

          Everyone is welcome in here, Just avoid the “Water Cooler” area and you’ll be OK as what passes for a Misalliances section here can at times get a bit heated.

          I hope you enjoy your time here at TR if you have any problems I’m sure that someone will be able to help you out without any trouble, just do not be afraid to ask when required.

          Instead of linking th einvites at teh top of the page, all new emails have an invite link, up to 50 for whoever I guess. Well suppose I will have a few for a while now.
