Sits alongside this article also from The Times.

Interesting to note - type in GMail into Google and you don't get any news items offered at the top - I had to actually type "Gmail news" to get this article.

I know it doesn't really prove anything -- but according to the whois for gmail.com, it say it was registered by since 1995, expiring in 2014.

When a domain name is sold or trasferred to another individual or comapny, doesn't this registration date get reset to the current date of transfer?

If so, then that would mean Google has owned the name and planned to use it since 1995 correct? If I'm wrong maybe someone can correct me.

Usually not.

Apparently it would've been a whole lot easier to refer to the product as Google Mail. I'd bet someone has used every letter of the alphabet to describe some product many times. Come up with a winner and someone will come of the woodwork shaking their left finger at you while holding out their right hand.(vice versa for lefties.)

Those darn single letter adjectives get you into trouble every time.

If Google lose I have Google Mail domain name (Not the dot com) but I am letting it expire at the moment! I will give it to Google for free if they ask rather than letting it go to some greedy person who would only end up getting sued.
