Beta mail

Mike over at Coffee Corner is trying out a Gmail account. So am I (the e-mail link in the sidebar actually points there now, just for the hell of it). He seems to think that it is going up and down like a yo-yo. I find that I am more concerned about how long e-mail is taking to get through. So far of three messages I have sent to myself (two short test messages, and one copy to myself of an e-mail I want to keep) two have taken well over half an hour to get delivered and show up in my inbox. I guess that they will have to resolve some throughput issues before they open it up to all and sundry.
