Non-Google Gmail - UseGmail.com
Another Web site is using the name "Gmail" for a product that is not the Google Gmail service: UseGmail.com. But uhhhh... when I do a "whois" lookup that domain is owned by Google! I'm wondering if this product has *always* been owned by Google or (as I suspect) Google took over owning the domain name UseGmail.com at some point....
