Great free mails, greater mail storages

I found this from blog.. So, I put it for deaf community..Deaf should know what about the emails ;)

The current mail storage in GMail is 5GB (and counting), comparing to early this year it was only 2.8Gb (February 2007). If the pace of the increment grow steadily, we’ll be expecting a 10Gb mail storage in the next 2 or 3 years time or Google might probably go unlimited storage like Yahoo! Gmail has doubled up the maximum attachment size from 10MB to 20MB, allowing users to send larger files of up to 20 MB.

Yahoo! Mail started off exactly 10 years ago offering 4Mb for each free mail account, today they are already going unlimited mail storage. That is really a bar very hard to match for its competitors.

Hotmail / Windows Live Mail on the other hand is giving 5Gb free mail storage. Windows Live Hotmail is a free email service that gives you a 5 GB of online storage, fast search, solid security and an interface easy as a desktop email program. This is a simple and easy to use free email service akin to desktop email.


I used three emails;Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail accounts.. I remember that Yahoo and Gmail are very famous than Hotmail..Now Hotmail become 'Windows Live Mail' which give better services, such as WindowLive messenger..Most deaf malaysian to use WindowLive messenger..hehe because they like to see the emotion smiley and skins? hehe But, Hotmail's interface is good >_< style="font-weight: bold;">10MB only. :( I hard to send my files work to my friends and lecturers..

I think that Gmail is better than Yahoo..I also used Gmail account for attach the files because the attachment 20 MB~! I used it for my works, interviews, and bussiness only. Gmail's working faster on attachment. It will save so automatically while I write an email or attach files..

Here’s a brief run down on these four major free mail provider’s mail storage capacity as well as attachment limit.
  • GMail : 5Gb / 20Mb attachment size
  • Yahoo! Mail: Unlimited / 10Mb attachment size
  • Hotmail : 5Gb / 10Mb attachment size
  • Lycos Mail : 3Gb / Unlimited attachment size
