So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

Alternatives?

I do not understand why someone should want gmail.
For about € 10 (one time payment) and the cost of a domain (depends where) about € 8 to € 20 a year.
You can get 5 mail-accounts and 30 email-addresses, no adds, no google or whoever.
Run it with webmail and you do not even need a mailclient.

OK it is not free, but free from trouble.


Normal people don't run their own mail servers. Normal people don't even know what a mail server is. Yours is a solution for an infinitesimally small percentage of the smartphone-using population...
