Gmail is invite only. Get somebody who already has it to send you an invitation. You will need to give them your existing email address and name so that they can send you one.

I have some if you want. Email me and I'll hook you up.

if it was sent to a hotmail or yahoo account, look in your junk mail folder. That is where it seems to go at those accounts.

I got it -- thanks to all!

I'll now run a search to see if I can get these forwarded to Outlook.

Automatic forwarding to another email account
We're testing a new feature that lets you forward new incoming messages to any email account you want. It's free during the test and you can set it up in seconds. Even set up filters to forward only some of your messages. It's your mail. Get it the way you want it.
The way I read it, they may charge for such forwarding in future.

As somebody pointed out in another thread, gPopper lets you have POP access to your gmail account. Google for it.
