Gmail is a free email web service created by Paul Buchheit and owned by Google. It was started on 1st April 2004 in its beta form and due to its release date, some even said it to be a joke by Google. But Gmail started to evolve and became one of the most used web email services because of the features provided by it. Gmail provided 1GB of free storage so users do not have to worry about not getting email due to filled storage. It also allowed 25MB of attachments in an email where other email services were allowing only 2 to 4 MB of attachments. Moreover, it also provides very good search, spam protection, nice layout and even better options to organize your emails. Gmail provides one of the best spam detection services which make it far superior to other similar services.
