When will Gmail come out of beta!

I used to be a big supporter of gmail for the features it provides. I was totally addicted to the threading, and their pop+smtp support. They have some really cool (and useful) features, like the outgoing mail from smtp server will be added to the thread, popped emails will be archived instead of deleted, etc. My primary email (off dwipal.com domain) was being routed to the gmail account. However, gmail has always been plagued by realibility issues, which, even though I hoped will be resolved soon, are still there even after almost a year of usage.

1. Their pop and smtp servers go down a lot.
2. Emails get delayed, sometimes by hours.
3. I am not sure about this, but some friends claim to have sent me an email which i never received.

So i got off gmail till these things get resolved. Wonder when they will come out of "beta"!

    Hotmail sucks. I am also wondering why Gmail is still in Beta after 1+ years of being used.... Betas arent usually permanent stages for a product. lol.

  4. Never had one single problem with Gmail. I use all of their SMTP and POP Services, along with SMS, Pop-up, and E-mail Notifications. Amazing Service. Period.

  5. Gmail just cost me hours of work, entering information to send to my insurance company contacts, attaching files and photos, then it crashed. It let me enter infor for an hour and 15 minutes, crashed, and didn't come back up for 2 HOURS!!! Google needs to start working toward making the reliable product they promised nearly 2 years ago when they advertised to get people to sign up! Thanks gmail! You a**hole!

    Charlie, Charlie... you are one sad human being !

    Gmail/Google never said you have to use their products. It was always optional. Besides, crashings you mentioned are such a nonsense, better check your system for viruses that are probably crashing your browser. You should learn your manners first and then go in public and start cursing... because it seems like that's the only thing you really know.

    my friend use pop or imap
    any one not both

    that should solve your delayed mail problem , i solved it that way

  8. I honestly think that all of these supporters of hotmail and yahoo really dont see the potential of gmail. I have not once had the mail servers go down and not once had an email delayed, i really dont see why thats happining for you. With Gmail you get relevent advertisements that you might even use while hotmail sticks usless flashing advertisements and stupid things. Also Hotmail does not offer the free pop or imap servies. Dont rant on that hotmail is better unless you are going to pay $10/month! Its free, convenient, and its the best email service ever.

    P.S. - I am not a Google employee :D

  9. Okay, I would not say that Windows Live Hotmail was really good, because it really is not the best. I think if you're referring to the old MSN Hotmail then maybe.

    But, if you have been with Hotmail since like 2002 when it was still MSN Hotmail, you would still have Outlook Access (http) which Windows Vista Has Removed, with their new product called Windows Mail.

    Otherwise if you want reliable Hotmail you just need to download the Windows Mail (From ideas.live.com) Try it ;)

    Hotmail is trash. Do you know how many deviant art accounts I've stolen due to their lackluster security efforts? Jesus Christ, anybody using Hotmail and saying it's great is really really stupid. Yahoo isn't much better but at least they're secured a lot better.

  11. lol 2006, in 2009 its still not out of beta
