Get A Google Inbox Invite, Guaranteed, During Today's 'Happy Hour'

Get a Google Inbox Invite, Guaranteed, During Today's

Google's new Inbox is the hot new email app currently in invite-only stage. Although you can get it with a friend's help, here's a surefire way for the rest of us to get Inbox: Send an email between 10AM and 11AM AEDT today.

Here's the tweet from Google explaining the situation (in US time):

Email [email protected] within that timeframe and you'll get your invite by midday, the company promises. (Thanks Avi!)

    This is awesome, because I already emailed them last week and....tumbleweeds

    Email sent.
    It bounced.
    Server overload.

      I got an email back straight away saying I'd get an invite. Maybe try again.

        I got a mail back as well saying they would send one asap.

        Yep, finally got a reply back after about 3 more attempts.


      Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

      [email protected]

      Technical details of permanent failure:
      Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain by [2607:f8b0:400d:c04::1a].

      The error that the other server returned was:
      550-5.2.1 The user you are trying to contact is receiving mail at a rate that
      550-5.2.1 prevents additional messages from being delivered. For more

    Just tried again and received a response saying i'd get an invite asap. :)

    bounced back, but success on the 2nd try.

    Yep, a response came through within 1-2 minutes. Said I'd get an invite as soon as possible.

    it's actually really surprising that Google's mail server couldn't handle the inundation of emails, even if only for a few seconds.

    Got a confirmation email saying they would send an invitation as soon as possible. It's now 1:10 PM, a bit over an hour past when they said they would have the invites out.

    Google why for you make me sad?

    I got my invite, only to discover it can't be used for Google Apps users :(

    If anyone managed to snag an invite I wouldn't mind one being sent my way. I can hear the wind blowing in response to my email to google...
