It's pretty ironic that you can't use the "search our site" option from Google's about page (there's a silly action value in the form):

google.com/intl/en/about.html

That's odd, it worked for me. For instance, typing in "search query" on that page and hitting enter led me here:
google.com/search?output=googl ...

action = h t t p : / / / search

I forgot about Phillip's URL handling while posting :)

That page also says:

<<Free email with 4.3GB storage and less spam.

It doesn't even say OVER 4.3 GB :-)
