It appears that Google's plans to offer all UK users of its Gmail service the ability to swap their googlemail.com with a gmail.com suffix, are yet to take effect.
The web giant announced earlier this week that five years after it launched the UK version of its online email client, it has finally wrestled back the right to use the Gmail suffix, as opposed to the longer version.
Greg Bullock, software engineer at Google, said that 'soon' anyone with a googlemail address would be able to upgrade to the gmail.com alternative.
Several members of the V3.co.uk team have now received the following message in their accounts: "Google Mail is becoming Gmail in the UK. Want to switch to [email protected]?". However, following this link brings the reader to an error page.
It seems that Google needs a little longer before it can offer us all a more manageable Gmail address.
