Gmail is called Google Mail in the UK and Germany.

Lots of Free Space

  • More than 7 GB of free storage space for your messages and attachments,

Quick and Easy to Use

  • Attachments with your emails are very quick to upload and send.


  • Allows up to 20 MB of space for attachments.
  • If you have contacts that also use Google email then they are guaranteed to receive your attachments too.
  • No more receiving a message that your email was returned because the attachment was too large.

Secure and Safe

  • Google uses HTTPS encryption in so your emails are always private and secure.

Spam Detector

  • Google has a very sensitive spam detector. It blocks spam before it gets to your inbox.

Search and Find

  • If you get a lot of email and need to find one quickly then you can use the Search button to find the exact message you want.

Priority Inbox

  • If there are emails that you always want to read first then you have the option of putting them in your Priority Inbox. Google will then automatically separate this important email from all the others.

  • Gmail only allows relevant text ads. You will not have to put up with those very annoying flash and image banner advertisements that other email providers allow on their sites.

Google Chat

      Hello Chuma

      That is strange. I have 5 Gmail accounts. When you go to register a new account are you using the same user name? They may be telling you that that user name already exists. Type in a different user name for the new account.

      There is no other reason I can think of really. Try that and let me know how you get on

      Hello rosh

      You have to be filling in the Birthday part on the application wrong. It should be like this MM/DD/YYYY (e.g. 11/16/2011. That is the month first, day second and year last. Sometimes the year will stay at 2011 so make sure it is changed to your year of birth.

      Good luck and let me know how you get on
