Sean Palmer was lucky enough to get picked as a trial user for Google's new Gmail service and was kind enough write up this review for the rest of us. Gmail is a web-based mail service that, among other things, will offer 1GB of free storage space. Perhaps most notably, Gmail steps away from the idea of mailboxes and replaces them with a classification system. Messages can be assigned one or more user-defined labels which can be used in conjunction with a built-in Google search. Nifty.
