    Yahoo tries to catch up to speed.

    Well people its final. Yahoo mail has upgraded to 1 gigabyte in its attempt to catch up to google and gmail.

    Of course gmail responded with upgrade its mail space to 2 gigs and its still going up! (bigger than yahoo mail plus right now!)

    And our final contestant, hotmail (or msn) is still at 250 megs.

    Just thought to share the news. :)

    I use the regular yahoo one for business emails and it has never been at more then 75%. I also prefer sending video and other files using msn or whatever but that is just me. I guess I can see your point.

    gmail doesnt have any graphical ads while free yahoo mail does.

    Those get kinda annoying for people on 56k.

    'Scuse me, but I'd like to point out this isn't just any old gigabyte of space, it's a whopping 1GB.


    Thank you.

    For some reason I still have only the 2mb hotmail account. Each morning it's 98% full due to spam.

    Actually, Gmail accounts are over 2 gigs now. They have a cool counter that just keeps going up.
