Man..i cant belive this, i thought hotmail was atleast going to match yahoo and not goo overbored..but i guess i was wrong..250mb of space and some other cool features will be on the charts for us and the ppl who are paying for hotmail 2gb.insane haah!! but it helps to send attachments worth 10mb now..this rocks..thats y they say competition is always healthy for the customer and the industry..more the competition more everyone gets...including the blood sucking companies


cheers

I know its awesome..almost everyone uses hotmail and so this is gr8 news...anyhow I read it should start sometime in the 1st/2nd week of july..these guys are making preperations for it.

my account is always full and emails bounce back and I cant even delete most of my emails cuz they are important, but now I will only be taking 1% of the space : ) which is cool..

anyhow gmail is a very powerful tool as well..love it..

Cheers

Awesome to finally hear some confirmation.

Just hope it happens soon so i dont have to worry about important mails larger than 200k bouncing anymore!@!@
What the hell is taking these microsoft morons so long?
If only they would offer everyone 250MB right NOW even if they cant provide all the storage at the moment.... because it will take more than a year for hotmail to even reach 50% of its 250mb per person storage capacity!

Ummmm...... What are they waiting for? Christmas??

If it wasnt for the pains involved in "changing" email addresses im sure they would have lost a HUGE chunk of their mail users.

Its been WAY more than two weeks since GTO posted that mail... and still no sign of any more storeage space.

Im quite pissed.
MSN morons.....

Yes he did sell Hotmail to Microsoft long back.
And since then hotmail has just been getting worse.

And this is why i am cursing microsoft. $#%@#%&
2MB...thats a joke!

Salil, im sure they will upgrade sometime, but the thing is that they said that it would be done by the 20th July! [img]http://www.team-bhp.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/***.gif[/img]
(as seen in what GTO has pasted in the earlier thread.. however i never got that mail..which is strange!)

The only reason I still use hotmail is coz of its compatibility with Outlook express. If not for this, I would have dropped it a long time ago.

I havent received it in my other hotmail box either. Buttttttttttttttt the hotmail where I did receive it is registered with my Boston address. But where have they mentioned 20th July? They have only said that they will send an update within two weeks.

They claim its going to be done by "autumn". If you want an ad-free 2GB hotmail, its available now and for $20/year.

Ok true,

They didnt mention 20th July for the upgrade..sorry about that.... i got a bit carried away
But they didnt even get back to you by the 20th July (2weeks from date of email) did they?

These cheap guys were also trying to "sell" 250mb of storeage as a premium account upto about a week or two back!!

Rtech, you mean to say that yahoo/gmail etc dont support POP3?

cheers
