Gmail increases storages space

I noticed this this morning. The amount of storage space seems to be creeping up.

For the month since I've been actively using gmail it was always "1000 MB". Earlier this morning I noticed it was "1223 MB", and just now I looked and it's "1301 MB".

It's growing!!!


A year after unveiling a free e-mail service with a full gigabyte of storage, Google Inc. is doubling the capacity of each account and plans to keep bumping up the limit in the future.

Once the upgrade takes effect Friday, Gmail users will be able to store up to 2 gigabytes of e-mail and attachments for each account. Even more capacity will be made available after that as it becomes feasible, the company said.

I still have privacy concerns about Google's recent plans, but I have to admit that I'm liking gmail more and more all the time.

I currently am using three different mail clients. Eudora, Thunderbird, and Gmail. I have different email addresses for different types of mail, and I have each of them set up to go to one of the mail systems. I've gradually been migrating more and more of them away from Thunderbird, and toward Gmail.

You know, I have up to 50 Gmail account "invites" that I can use. If any friends or acquaintances would like one, just holler.
