(Email providers) Sign up for Gmail
Those keeping an eye on developments at the big providers of email addresses should note that Gmail - Google's free web-based email service - left beta last week and opened up to everyone. Well, sort of.

To activate an account you need to have a US mobile phone number to receive the relevant invitation code. This process is to stop spammers from grabbing multiple accounts. Other countries are set to follow shortly.

So if you never had the chance to set up a test account there before, now you can (if you have the right phone). Then you can see all the wonderful things the interface does to your carefully crafted HTML email promotions.
