Ok - it's official.
I had already passed on the offer of one invite from him, which he gave to Robin - a mutual friend of ours. This was because I really didn't see a huge need for 1 GB of webmail. I had thought myself quite happy with my current email software
Upon reflection though I thought about it. Exposing my email online would be more difficult while using a thick client, and I did enjoy the idea of being able to have access to my emails from work and while on holiday etc.
I only have two problems with it so far:
- my inbox is empty (save the welcome message) so 1 GB of space really looks funny
- it doesn't work from my phone
However - the first point should be cleared up pretty quickly and the second - well - perhaps someone out there has a workaround?
