I don'g get it, haven't there been like 10 million free email places for years now, including gmail and yahoo etc?

Could they just call themselves Yahoogle next and be a little more obvious about the cloning....

I HATE my Yahoo mail, even though I've had it longer. It's basically my dumpster for the internet

Wait, so... yahoo is just allowing users to use @ymail instead of @yahoo? they both have 5 letters so no savings on "time" there... what the hell is the point of this and why is the OP excited?

People really seem to like getting a free email addy which is their real name, instead of having to settle for something like KittiesAreCuddly34230923@hotmail.com

I guess.... doesn't make sense though, why not just pay $7 (or better, where's ROSSMan?) to buy a domain name and use the free google apps for your domain so you'll have yourname@yourdomain.com?

you know how hard it is to think up a good domain name that is short, professionalish sounding, and not taken? heh. That and it's $7/yr. and google hosted is slow to implement features of the main google apps/gmail.

I see your point, but does anyone think "ymail" or "rocketmail" really sounds all that "professional"? I dunno, I guess I don't see why anyone would get excited about it, but hey, carry on :)
