But, I believe if I send an email to [username]@googlemail.com, it will reach the inbox of [username]@gmail.com right? Hope someone can clarify this. Cheers~ – Thant Zin Oo Aug 13 '10 at 3:24
Correct. The two domains are functionally identical; mail sent to the same username at either domain will arrive in the same inbox. – dgw Aug 13 '10 at 4:24
true or not.. this is not an answer to the question.. should be a comment! – Lipis Aug 13 '10 at 12:15
@Lipis Could you please kindly check my reputation? It went up to 52 ('cos of this last post). Commenting requires 50 reputation. How can I post a comment, even if I wish to? Does it mean people with below 50 reputation are not supposed to comment? – Thant Zin Oo Aug 17 '10 at 7:44
you're absolutely right.. I thought that afterwards.. but that's the way it is.. you need 50 to start commenting! Unless it's your own question.. if you'll spend some time in stackexhange sites.. you'll see that is totally fair! – Lipis Aug 17 '10 at 22:57

There is also gmail.com.

See "googlemail.com domain for certain countries" for more details.

I am not sure of your motivation for asking this, but you may be interested in Google Apps. With it, you can use the Gmail software (spam filtering, web interface, etc) on your own domain. The only cost associated with this is in registering your domain name. (There are also paid versions of the Google Apps service with more features, but I find the free version sufficient for my family and myself.)
