Google has been forced to change the name of their service in the UK to Google Mail as of today. As one of our regular readers noticed, his logo had been switching between the regular GMail logo and the new Google Mail logo over the past couple of weeks.
Users who have registered for GMail up until now can keep their @gmail.com address, but from now on, users will have to live with one with the domain @googlemail.co.uk.
So now in two countries GMail is officially known as Google Mail, Germany and the UK. Google does not plan to change the name of their service in any other countries.
Some interesting things about the new announcement that I found while digging around... if you visit http://googlemail.co.uk, you will notice it's not GMail. I assume they will be forwarding this to mail.google.com/mail sometime in the future.
