Gmail Updates and Alerts available to all RRS feed

  • Question

  • Google Groups was designed to represent the best alternative to help customers of all the Google products by allowing them to communicate with other users of the services or even with the company's officials. Today, the search giant introduces a new topic created especially for Gmail, the mail solution recently released from the private beta program. The discussion entitled Gmail Updates And Alerts helps users find information easier by reading a simple thread where Google's employees will post messages periodically.

    "The purpose of this sub-group is to provide you with valuable information regarding technical issues that Gmail may be experiencing. Posts will be made by Gmail Alerts Manager, a Google employee, and will have as accurate and up-to-date information as possible. We know how important Gmail is to our users and want to ensure that you are fully informed in the event of a problem," the Gmail Alerts Manager member sustained in the introduction of the topic.

    One interesting aspect remarked by Philipp Lenssen from Google Blogoscoped is the first line from the message posted in the introduction that said: "Hi Gmailers". The blogger quoted a paragraph from Google's Permissions that forces users to avoid using this kind of words or they might get sued.

    "One of the conditions for all uses is that you can't mess around with our marks. Only we get to do that. Don’t remove, distort or alter any element of a Google Brand Feature. That includes modifying a Google trademark, for example, through hyphenation, combination or abbreviation, such as: Googliscious, Googlyoogly, GaGooglemania. Do not shorten, abbreviate, or create acronyms out of Google trademarks," the search giant sustains.
