    Valvrave messaged me (previously expired from my pm) and had not received a notification of his pm. I can confirm this is an issue. Anyway, my pm to BigRedGonzo has expired so I sent my last invite to Valvrave. Hopefully I'll get three more as some others have, but mine are gone for the time being.

    Sorry I was out of town this weekend. The closest thing to electronics I had with me was a fishing rod and a pistol. Lots of sand and salt water and FRIGGIN rain. Anyway, I missed my PM, can I get "re-listed?"

    Thanks,

    Mods, can you scratch my name from the list? I just got my invite directly from Google/Gmail. I signed up a couple weeks ago and had about given up on getting an invite going that route.

    I'll keep an eye on this thread and spread the love when I have invites to give out.

    The Inbox app, are there any advantages over the Gmail 5.0 app?

    It's a different approach from the Gmail app - one may fit your usage style better than the other. If you (like me) like to keep your inbox cleared of everything except emails which a follow-up, Inbox is probably more your speed. If, on the other hand, you're like I was up until two months ago ( ;) ) and just keep everything in your inbox, the updated Gmail is probably more your style. :thumbup:

    Note that that is 3-4 Pacific Time, so that will be 6-7 PM EST, 5-6 Central, etc. Make sure you adjust for you local time zone. If I'm able I'll try to post in the thread at the beginning as a reminder.

    I'm going to be cooking supper at the start time, so I will post now that it is T-Minus 25 minutes until "Operation Spam inbox@gmail.com" commences. Reminder, Google posted this on G+ earlier today:

    The times on the post are Pacific, so adjust your Time zone appropriately.

    Damn, I just sent a request on my wife's behalf and their servers are down. I guess we got the work out.:p

    Edit: second attempt went through, I got the standard response I got when I asked earlier.

    Prior to getting my invite and using Inbox by Google, I tried everything I could download from the Play Store for my other mail accounts while using the provided Gmail client. I ended up choosing Blue Mail for all my accts.

    Now on day two with Inbox despite it lacking a single unified inbox choice, it's other features are of great value to me. Considering it's a new product with more improvements and additions coming I'm particularly impressed. The layout is very conducive in increasing the speed with which i can process my mail.

    I cannot overstate the value of dedicating time to read the tutorials. Some of its best features are easy to use, yet not so easy to discover without learning this app.

    Keep trying immediately, many here in the office are having success on the second or third consecutive try.
