Remember how Google lost the right to use the name 'Gmail' in Germany and was even fined over it?
Look what happens when you try and use it anyway (while in Germany).
The text says;
We can't provide service under the Gmail name in Germany; we're called Google Mail here instead.Imagine not even being able to link to the alternative URL. Ouch.
If you're traveling in Germany, you can access your mail at http://mail.google.com.
Oh, and we'd like to link the URL above, but we're not allowed to do that either. Bummer.
