Goodbye Googlemail Hello to Gmail

Followers of Gmail may remember when a few years ago Google stopped using the gmail address in the UK and started using googlemail instead, this was due to a trademark dispute between Google and British firm Independent International Investment Research dating from 2005.

It seems this dispute is now solved and all users of googlemail.com addresses will be given the option to change to gmail.com

We really like gmail and all the features it offers in fact we use gmail to collect our mail from our host of email addresses that we seem to accumulate over time – you can always contact us on bluewaveweb@gmail.com
