    Yahoo Bumping Free Email Accounts to 1000 MB.

    I look forward to hearing what they plan to do with my Yahoo premium account that I'm paying $30/year for.

    Yahoo Inc. Again Expands E-Mail Storage
    Wednesday March 23, 8:56 am ET
    Yahoo Inc. Again Expands Free E-Mail Storage to 1 GB, Upgrades Desktop Search Software SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) -- Yahoo Inc. is quadrupling the amount of storage provided with its free e-mail accounts and upgrading its desktop search software in its ongoing duel with rivals Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp.Yahoo said late Tuesday that it will provide 1 gigabyte of storage for each free e-mail account. The current limit is 250 megabytes. The expanded storage will be available in mid-April, said Brad Garlinghouse, Yahoo's vice president of communications products.

    The Sunnyvale-based company also is expanding the reach of its desktop software, a test product designed to find material stored on computer hard drives. Yahoo's software, licensed from X1 Technologies, will now index content from e-mail address books and discussions in Yahoo's instant messaging service.

    The expanded e-mail storage enables Yahoo to catch up with online search engine leader Google, which offers an invitation-only service that has been offering 1 gigabyte of storage for nearly a year.

    When Google introduced "Gmail," Yahoo provided just 4 megabytes of free e-mail storage. Yahoo, which runs the world's most popular Web site, has gradually increased its e-mail capacity in response to Google's competitive threat. Microsoft's Hotmail service offers 250 megabytes of free e-mail storage.

    As part of its e-mail changes, Yahoo also is providing software from Symantec Corp. to clean viruses detected in attachments.

    Yahoo's desktop software is also competing an array of similar products, including offerings from Google and Microsoft.

    I just noticed the other day that you can't leave extra spaces between your words for dramatic effect now anymore, either. Damn censors.

    Yes, you can. You apply labels and archive.

    I don't care for the "conversations" though. I end up with one message that has 15 replies in it. When I reply to one person, I'm always afraid that I'll be replying to everyone in the conversation.

    (Unless you have gmail, people probably won't understand what that means.)

    The labels I knew about, the archiving I didn't. Mostly I didn't like the idea of having everything sit in 1 big email box. Admittedly, this reasoning would probably come as a shock to my wife, since she constantly grumbles at how I seemingly don't organize things on the computers at home. Email is different, though.
