SAN FRANCISCO, 20 February 2006, US Internet search portal Google is testing a service that allows people to customise e-mail accounts with their names or other personal touches.

Students at a community college in Silicon Valley were invited by Gmail product manager Stephanie Hannon on February 13, to make their own Gmail account domain names, the part of an e-mail address that follows the "at" sign.

Students at San Jose Community College can customise addresses with their own names, school teams, or other personal touches, Hannon said in a blog entry at the Google website.

"We`re testing a new service with the school by hosting Gmail accounts with SJCC domain addresses (like student@ plus admin tools for efficient account management," Hannon wrote.

Hannon left an online invitation for other schools, businesses or organisations to contact Google about crafting their own Gmail domain addresses.
