Google Launches 'Email Intervention' Gmail Campaign

Before Gmail's launch in 2005, the most popular choices for web-based email were Hotmail and Yahoo!. Then Google made a splash with its webmail offering that did away with folders, introduced threaded messages, all with very generous storage quotas.

Now, more than six years after, Google is ratcheting up its effort to steal even more users from those other services. Google typically lets its products speak for themselves, but the new "Email Intervention" webpage put up by the company is clearly aimed at capturing those who are still on some other mail service.

It's a bit of a cheeky move, but don't forget the in terms of worldwide numbers, Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail are ahead of Gmail.

  • i will never trade my yahoo messenger/mail its very important to me personally
  • Gmail is more professionally looking IMO, it's very simple and it loads fast. I stopped using hotmails horrible service the minute gmail came out, and I only keep my yahoo account to play online pool now :P
  • I feel like I have an email account with almost every email provider. Kinda annoying actually. Good thing for outlook which keeps track of them all =P
