This is great news because they are willing to be generous and share the good fortune with us :) I have had my Gmail account for almost a year, thanks to Blogger! I still remember those few sceptics who talked about Gmail scanning our mail and refused to open an account with Gmail but today Gmail is more than accepted as the email service provider. And the best thing is Gmail now allows pop access.
It feels good to know Gmail has come beyond those initial hiccups. Way to go!
