Wow… How Gmail (and Us) have evolved. I worked in IT at a time when the internet was ramping up and online services were in their infancy. My very first email account was a Hotmail account, that I still have to this day, and AOL was a favorite of many people. What was your first email account?
With its launch on April 1, 2004, many people thought Gmail was an elaborate April Fool’s prank. It was anything but that, and the past 15 years have proven how serious Google is about email.
