Do these PhD students' schools not have their own domain name? :-)

Note that it's possible to let gmail manage email to/from addresses that use other domain names.  See:http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gmail/tEaJstfhzeI

The problem is not the 'gmail' service per se (provided that you don't mind your email being scanned :-).  The problem is the "@gmail.com" email address suffix, which advertises to the world that you're not particularly relevant.  (Ditto for "@yahoo.com", "@hotmail.com", "@aol.com" addresses, etc.)
