So Yahoo and AOL are offering unlimited storage...what about G?

Looks like (Infinite + 1) < Unlimited
AOL copycats Yahoo, that's all to say.

AOL copies everyone.

Netscape copies Digg,
AOL beta copies Yahoo!,
AOL search copies Google.

Why would AOL Mail have to be different to any other AOL properties?

AOL Search is Google right now. This was part of their partnership agreement back at the end of 2005.

Has any of you filled GMail with more than 50% of its capacity?!
It's not a matter of space but a matter of service. I won't move to Yahoo because I'm happy with the GMail interface and reliability...

You're absolutely right here Zim!
Even if you use 99% of your Gmail account, it's the matter of service and reliability Gmail has.
That's why i will not switch to any kind of email service ever again. I'm sticking with Gmail :)

<< GmailFS is fobidden by Google, isn't it? >>

Sorta. Read the following:

<< Note that Gmail's terms of use impose no restrictions that would make use of GmailFS a direct violation of the Service agreement. However, they also state that "Google also reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue the Service with or without notice at any time and without any liability to you" and "Google reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time without notice for any reason", so that Google would be well within its right to disable accounts used for GmailFS at any time and without warning; Google can and has suspended accounts for the sort of excess activity GmailFS generates. >>

I'm using 3% so unlimited storage won't do much for me :-)
1016 mails
161 mails with attachments
55 if you remove PWA updates

I don't really want Google to offer Unlimited Storage, because we all know that it's not possible there will ALWAYS be a limit no matter how high it is.

Yeah Martin. :)

My stats:
10% of usage.
1456 email in my Inbox.
4702 of total emails.

How can you check only your email with attachments?

Service, definately.Reliability, definatelty not. I have always been able to access my Y!Mail account while Gmail is frequently down

We have several Israeli email services here, which offer 5 GB of storage.
And they suck like hell!!

"How can you check only your email with attachments?"

Next to the search box click Show Search Options. Check "Has Attachment" then hit Search.

And might aswell throw in some stats:
Total Emails: 2090
Total Emails in Inbox: 0 (by keeping my inbox clear of read messages Gmail loads quicker)
Emails with attachments: 276
Diskspace: 152MB (5%)

i;ve been with Gmail since a month after it started, If I have only used 5% in that time – I see no real need for any more space.

Oh got it. Thanks Martin :)

I have 242 email with attachments.

I've been using Gmail since April 20th, 2005. (About a year after it has been released)
