Gmail (pronounced gee-mail) is a free email service offered by Google, launched in beta on April 1, 2004 and to the general public on July 7, 2009. It supports POP3 and IMAP4 for importing mail from other mail servers. As of December 1, 2015 individual Gmail accounts have a space limit of up to 15 GB. Note that this also doubles as shared space with other Google services such as Google Drive.

The correct way to write it is with a capital G and all lowercase letters for the rest. The M is not capitalized.
