As some of you may know, Google is offering free 2.5 gigabyte e-mail accounts (Gmail). But you cannot just sign up for them, you need an invitation from another Gmail user. Well, I have 19 invitations to give out (and should get more in the future), and I'd like to offer them to other examiners.

I have found Gmail to be very useful not just for e-mail while on the road, but also for conveniently storing large files. For example, by storing my PowerPoint and other files in my Gmail account, I have a backup that's available (almost) everywhere I go.

If you would like to receive a Gmail invite, please post your e-mail address here or send an e-mail to polyops.oconus@gmail.com.

I'm not sure if this is a confidentiality issue, but google sniffs email for targeted advertising. They say its confidential but I don't think this is acceptable for any professional subject to HIPPA requirements. Most polygraph examiners are not, but we may have other agency or professional regulations regarding confidential electronic communications.

I have about 100 invites if people want.

There's no confidentiality issue about using Gmail. They're governed by the same privacy laws as any other e-mail provider, and can't go reading your e-mail or releasing it to third parties. Just don't use it to send anything classified, as with any private e-mail.

It is probably a good deal but check with your department first. Ours made us stop using all outside e-mail sources (I used to use "hot mail") due to virus's and other bad things.

I think George got me with a virus on an e-mail through hot mail.

Ted,

Did you receive the invite I sent you? If not, it may have been caught by your office's spam filter. If you did not receive it, I'll be happy to send another one to an alternative e-mail address.
