Google’s New Inbox By Gmail Can’t Handle Its Inbox

Wow, this is something that I found rather funny… Google just announced Inbox by Gmail, a new type of service that handles all of your appointments, calendar, and emails (and some other stuff) in one place. OK, so that’s really cool. If it works. I’d like to be one of the first to try it.

In the blog post, Google asked people to send an email to Inbox@Google.com. But, apparently Google’s Inbox won’t accept emails to inbox@gmail.com. My email, sent to Inbox@Gmail.com, bounced back, like this:

From: Mail Delivery Subsystem
Date: Wed, Oct 22, 2014 at 1:30 PM
Subject: Delivery Status Notification (Failure)
To: XXXXXXX@gmail.com

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:

would love to try inbox from gmail.

All I did was follow their instructions, as I thought.. but then I realized, as a commenter on this post pointed out: it’s inbox@google.com and not the inbox@gmail.com address.

You see? I have too much “gmail” on the brain. Oh well.
