    Anybody else having this problem? By default when you register a gmail account in the uk you just get name@googlemail.com, I've tried using US proxies but google always seems to know I'm from the UK and therefore I can't register @gmail accounts.

    Anybody know a way around this? Is there a special type of proxy I need in order to do it? I only wanna register like 10 accounts.

    It doesn't matter if your account says "@googlemail.com". I'm uk based, and all my friends email me to my "@gmail.com" account. if your username is "whatever-whenever", whatever-whenever@gmail.com would be the same as whatever-whenever@googlemail.com.

    For sending email I normally use Apple Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird and I have all my gmail accounts set up as "@gmail".

    Hope this helps

    Aye I know but I need to do some US based cl posting and the like, so gmails all help with the legitimacy.
