Surprised that no one had posted this yet:

SEATTLE (AP) -- Microsoft Corp.'s Hotmail will become the latest Web-based e-mail service to increase the amount of storage space available for its free accounts, following similar moves by rivals.

Beginning later this summer, the company plans to increase the amount of storage for its free Hotmail account inboxes to 250 megabytes, up from two megabytes. Users also will be able to send larger attachments, up to 10 megabytes.

The article goes on to say that for $19.95/year, 2 GB of on-line storage is all yours. What's next in this game of "Can you top this?"

Just another example of competition being good for us consumers as a whole. And as a guy with multiple Hotmail addresses, this couldn't come as better news. I feel bad for saps though who paid 20 bucks for a whopping 10 Megabytes. I hope concessions will be made for them.

This has been a long time in and coming. Seriously if you look at what email has evolved to. Unless you had a service provider email, for the longest time, you couldn't send major files.

Now service providers along with free email providers are expanding to accommodate todays standards of BULK email and ever growing file sizes. High speed internet along with a combination of things have brought about this change. I remember when this originally happened to free web space but it came and went. I think this email thing is here to stay. I also agree with Torchslasher this is a very good thing, in the spectrum of economics, for consumers as a whole.

Eh. Size or no size, it still runs like crap on my Mac. I've had my Hotmail account for years, but I'm just about ready to up and abandon it to the spammers.

Hotmail is a pain in the ass to mess with, so I will just stick with Yahoo. Plus, I don't ever see myself using 200 MB of space, much less an extra 50 MB.

Heh. Well, I just tried to get to my Hotmail account, and I got a notice that the server was too busy. An unfortunate side effect, perhaps?

I hope it doesn't stay like this for long.

I think that called a concession. Wow- email is getting better - we can sned MP3 files to each other and our friends now. I shock that the record firms aren't complaining about it.
