These are not the Gmails you are looking for

While watching the Czech Republic punnel Denmark into submission, I found some other projects which go by the name of ‘Gmail’ and pre-date Google’s email service.

The first Gmail is an email client for the Gnome desktop environment that stores emails in a MySQL database. However, it’s been a long time since the project was updated, although there is a Debian package for it.

Another Gmail is the email newsletter of the Grappenhall Cricket Club, who are located near Warrington in Cheshire. Probably not that interesting unless you live near there and want to know how the local team is doing.

There’s a program for Windows called Gmail2 which lets you manage email lists. It’s a shareware program.

A site called OldsGmail has information about Oldsmobile G-Body cars and is home to a mailing list on the topic.

Amazing what you can find on the internet if you look hard enough, isn’t it? 🙂


  1. How do you spell “pummel” ??

  2. As a point of interest you may wish to know there is a forum on the internet where Gmail can be discussed:
    Hope that helps.
