Reply with an email address to which I can send an invite. Gmail has 1GB of free, searchable storage - it ROCKS! If you get a Gmail account from me, then please do at least one WU <A HREF="http://folding.stanford.edu" target="_new">Folding</A> for THG's Folding Team <A HREF="http://vspx27.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=teampa..." target="_new">40051</A>. Not mandatory, but we could use the help and it's for a great cause!

Who's the man with the master plan?

I think it may come out of BETA in 1st April of this year, at it's 1st anniversary of public disclosure.

I guarantee you'll be back up to 50 in no time.

I just can't get rid of them fast enough. My friends either have one already, or are 'happy' with some other crap. One of them's even <i>paid</i> to upgrade his yahoo account..

Mad people.

I like g-mail loads. It's nice and fast to use (although as more people sign up I'm sure that'll change), has loads of storage space, and I much prefer the labelling system to having lots of separate folders.

Paying for Yahoo or Hotmail account is the most stupid thing to do, even by "Average Joe" standard.

He originally paid to 'upgrade' his hotmail account from 2Mb to 250Mb I think, either around the time g-mail came out or just before, so it wasn't <i>that</i> stupid at the time, but if he'd put in a little research beforehand he could have avoided all that pain.

I had another friend who liked the fact Hotmail was compatible with outlook express, but since they've added POP3 support to gmail anyway now (in fact hotmail have withdrawn outlook support for new accounts now), that's a moot point.

Being able to use outlook Express for hotmail used to be a big plus point for me, but like I said above I actually really like Gmail's web interface, so I don't really care about that anymore anyway.

Incidentally Spitfire, I'm pretty sure you're the one who first gave me a g-mail invite, so I have you to thank for it! Just don't expect a kiss or anything :eek:

Are you sure that he paid for that? Hotmail upgraded <i>everyone</i> to 250MB for free <i>because</i> of g-mail.

I'm still at Hotmail myself, but that's because I've had that address for nearly a decade now so all of my friends and family know it. (That was <i>why</i> I got a Hotmail account in the first place, so that my email address doesn't change every time I change my ISP.)

I might have considered switching to g-mail had Hotmail not upgraded their free offering. At 2MB I was, on rare occasion, <i>close</i> to maxing out my account. At 250MB though I'll never have to worry about that again. :)  It kind of reminds me of Geocities in that respect actually.

When Hotmail "Free" was 2 MB, then people paid for a 25 MB or 50 MB upgrade.

Now the paid users get 2 GB

I know this is an old post Im replying to, but even today my venerable hotmail account is still only 2 MB.

I heard somewhere that only US accounts where upgraded for some odd reason, so I even tried changing my personal information so that I would be a US citizen (someone told me that would ensure my free upgrade) some months ago, but Im still at just 2 Mb. Not that I care, I use gmail through POP now. POP access is the real reason I love gmail (IMO its webinterface sucks horribly).

July 18, 2005 7:16:48 PM

I changed my information to US also and it took some time but they finally gave me the 250GB

If you get dragged back to Toronto in ths summer, go to Sauble beach. okay, it's a hundred miles north west of there, but it's worth the trip.
I went there last week. The beach is the nicest I've ever seen. I've been to beaches on 3 oceans, a bunch of seas, and more lakes than I can count.
Even though it's lake Huron, the water is clear and warm.
The sand is too fine for use in hour glasses, and somehow, it doesn't get too hot to walk on, even in 35c heat. You can walk staight out for about 1/2 kilometre and still have your head above water.
