Noticed that Gmail just went past 2/3 of the way to 10 GB available.

I was expecting mrbene to say that...

And I'm *only* using 277MB of it :-D

How many "Ye Olde Hotmail" account's could you fill with that!

[put at-character here]Haochi: I laughed. Truly.

[put at-character here] Mrrix32: 3333 and a bit of another... I personally don't think MS has hit the same realization as Google has – I expect that they *actually* have 2 GB of HD space allotted for each Hotmail user, whereas Google is playing the odds that most people won't use most of the space.

Isn't Windows Live Hotmail 5GB? :-)
And the old ones where 20MB (I think)

The old Hotmail accounts had 2MB.

One example of page from 2002 that mentions this embarrassing fact: activewin.com/editorials/artic ... (the comments are funny too: activewin.com/awin/comments.as ...)

Sorry for the thread necro.

[put at-character here]Mrrix32 – Yes indeed, it's 5GB now. Hadn't noticed that.
[put at-character here]Ionut – I remember the day that Hotmail got rid of sent mail older than 30 days, even when you weren't exceeding the 2MB limit. I made the mistake of syncing my Outlook Express with the server, including the sent mail folder. Everything, gone :(
