article [story.news.yahoo.com] Yahoo Inc. plans to give its paying e-mail customers 2 gigabytes of storage and boost the size limits on free accounts ... On free e-mail accounts, Yahoo is expanding storage to 100 megabytes from 4 megabytes and upping the message size limit to 10 megabytes from 3 megabytes.
I found my new 2gigs and was pleased. The spam filter at yahoo has been great. I don't know about the others complaining, but very few spam mails get through. I also click this is spam when one does make it. My ISP email filter and my hosting mails don't have anything close to yahoo's filter.
Yahoo made me drop my interest in Gmail with this upgrade.
The extra storage space is very useful. However, another less welcome change is that the View HTML Source button has vanished, so it is now no longer possible to edit the HTML source of a message. Even with the numerous formatting buttons, that was sometimes a useful feature. I've completed a feedback form about this issue, but not yet heard back from Yahoo.
what Y! did is fair. 100MB is more than enough for free and for $40 I'll take the 2 GB. I rather pay $40 a year, than see ads related to the spam I get in the mail. 99% would be adwords about making your thing bigger annyway.
