    I just noticed my hotmail says "Mailbox usage: 1% of 5 GB"

    When did they upgrade to 5gb?

    When it was only 2, I still wasn't even close to having it fill up.

    Guess I'm not popular.

    Not 5 gig popular anyway.

    They will still never be able to compete with the simplicity of Gmail. They automatically upgraded me to the new windows live Hotmail, and now it takes too long to load. I think the developers at Microsoft need to take a note from Steve Ballmer. (Developers developers developers developers)

    (2000th post, WOOT!)

    Gmail kicks butt because of its simplicity, its fast page loads, and IMO, its lack of stupidity.

    Back when I would monitor the mail queue for the company I worked for, I would always notice how the only gmail emails that failed were ones to addresses that didn't exist. Yahoo had issues delivering, as did MSN/Hotmail.


    PS- inbox.com is nice too :)
