Gmail is now ten years old, and this video, an illustrated email video explaining Gmail, is the perfect way to celebrate. On April 1, 2004, Google introduced us to the beta version of its webmail. Originally, Gmail was invitation only. Now, Gmail has more than 425 million users.

Google has decided that they are going to be encrypting all Gmail messages. This illustrated email video answers the age old question about where your email goes once you hit send. The animated whiteboard video explains from when the first email was sent and exactly what processes it goes through before it sent to you in mere seconds these days.

In 2013 alone, people sent over 182 billion emails each day. Even though we have various forms of information relay, email is still very prominent.
