Yahoo! Plays Catch-Up With Gmail, Quadruples Free E-Mail Storage Limit To One Gig
Coming Soon - 1GB For Your Yahoo! E-Mail, Digital Photos, and Documents

  • Google Launches "Google Code" Web Site: Code.Google.com

    While MSN Hotmail still offers only 250 megabytes of free storage, Yahoo! is playing catch-up with Google Mail and will start offering 1 gigabyte of storage to users of its free e-mail service, Yahoo! Mail.

    The announcement came yesterday, and is the third time Yahoo! has raised its storage threshhold in the past 9 months.

    "Today e-mail is a much richer and essential part of people's lives than it was five-plus years ago, and the more essential Yahoo! Mail is to someone's life the more engaged they will be with the overall Yahoo! network," a spokesman for the Sunnyvale, CA-based company said.

    Yahoo! is very late out of the gate: Google's Gmail service, with a 1GB limit as standard, was launched in beta a year ago.

    Gmail's got 2Gb 'nuff said

    This is too little too late. I have had a yahoo address for years but use it now only for two things, filling in when getting an offer and for people who haven't contacted me for a long time. Gmail not only has 1 gig storage but they have email threads and a great search engine,AND they allow pop access to email. It is the better service and I probably haven't even scratched the surface.

    "The global roll-out will begin in late April, which will make Yahoo! Mail the largest e-mail provider to deliver 1 GB of storage space for free to consumers worldwide," Yahoo said.

    Gmail beats this, I've been using it for the whole year, and nothing can beat it

    Who'll be first to offer 2 gig? Time for Hotmail to come from behind maybe?

    Stick with Gmail.
