The issues (finally) resolved after a few hours this am, so musta been mere growing pains or something.

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.

Another reaction to Yahoo 100 MB free storage - Indian portal Rediff offers 1 GB to all users starting today. Just saw the announcement.

Think MSN is buzzing like an angry beehive now? ;-)

>When will Hotmail follow suit?

Just got this mail today:

"As a valued MSN Hotmail Extra Storage subscriber; we will be upgrading your storage capacity to a massive 2GB with 20MB attachment size at no extra cost to you!"

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.
