Gmail.com was Garfield Mail before Google bought it.

According to Wikipedia:
“Before its acquisition by Google, the gmail.com domain name was used by a free e-mail service offered by Garfield.com, online home of the comic strip Garfield.”

Interesting how things work out. I wonder what the alternatives were? goomail, gomail, Omail, etc

    I remember this! I had a gmail account back in the day. What was it? 2001 or so? Boy, what a blast from the past.
