Noticed on the bottom of my gmail:

You are currently using 0 MB (0%) of your 1000000 MB.

Has anybody else noticed a 1000000MB storage space on their gmail. I'll see if I can fill it!

I see this:
You are currently using 11 MB (1%) of your 1000 MB.

maybe its a typo or you have a super-gmail account :)

Don't Google employees have 1TB space? Maybe somebody clicked the wrong button when they set yours up!

maybe you should email yourself a few hundred gigs of filler to test it out...

I thought it was just an error, too, but maybe this is how they up the ante on Lycos and Yahoo.

You are currently using 126 MB (0%) of your 1000000 MB.

Here's an article on this... currently no comment from Google. Guess they're deciding on how they can wow everyone when Gmail comes out of Beta.

What Google gaveth, Google tooketh away.

At least on my account. Anyone else still show a quasi-terabyte?

(Anyone think this was just a glitch, and not a strategized move?)

UPDATE:
As of 1:40am PST, a few of my friends are still reporting a 1TB in their Gmail. Weird!

Get to it! Two of my friends that still had 1TB just lost their 'magic' a few minutes ago. Whether it's a manual readjustment or something else, it appears that Google is slowly re-calibrating all the (non-employee) quotas back to 1GB.

If you think about it, its sort of funny. Almost as if Google is sending a direct message to Yahoo and Lycos, and any would-be competitors :)

Google spokesman Nathan Tyler denied the rumor. "It's a bug," he said. "Google is offering users 1 gigabyte of storage."

If I had a terabyte I'd be trying to fill at least a gig and a half straight away- Kind of like sticking your foot in the door.
