googlemail is going, gmail returns (if you're in the UK)

This might be old news now but Google now have the ability to use 'gmail.com' for UK people rather than the awkward 'googlemail.com':

Why did you change the name from Google Mail to Gmail?

A little more than a year after Gmail first launched, Google changed the name of its webmail service in the United Kingdom to "Google Mail" due to negotiations over a trademark dispute. We have reached a settlement, so we are happily changing the name back to Gmail, and offering @gmail.com addresses to all Google Mail users in the UK. Plus, it's shorter and easier to type this way :)
