Tricks to Sign Up as @Gmail.com In the Place Of @GoogleMail.com as Login and Email Address
Google is called Google Mail in United Kingdom and Germany. The reason is due to the Gmail brand name privileges dispute in those two countries. Due to this, the users of Gmail in these two countries who wants to register and sign up this Gmail service of Google, will get an email address with domain “GoogleMail.com” in the place of the usual Gmail.com.
They have to use it as default e-email address also when they sign in or login to Gmail. The email address of Gmail or Google Mail can be served as login username along with other Google Accounts.
Both the gmail domains are exchangeable, since any email dispatched to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org will be transported to same account’s inbox itself. So even if user had registered as @GoogleMail.com, the mailbox or inbox also receives all the mails which are sent to @Gmail.com with similar alias.
However, for the users who live in UK and Germany, if they need to have their email domain ending in @Gmail.com instead of @GoogleMail.com as their administrator email address or as their default login username and as sender address, there are some workarounds. Please read on to understand the tricks.

Google servers will be forced to consider that you are communicating with their servers from USA or any other place where the VPN server is found, and therefore it will automatically suggest you a login name alternative as @gmail.com. Using of the proxy server may fulfill the purpose too.

It is another way is to sign up for registering as a @gmail.com email account.
