    I was just looking at my Gmail account, which I've had for about 1.5 years, and in that time, I've only used 59MB out of 2668MB.

    How much of your 2.5GB are you using?

    ~120Mb. It's useful for receiving large pics and video files, but I tend to delete the big stuff (old habbits).

    I've also found it useful as a iDrive - new message, upload your files and then save as draft.

    I wonder whether Google would be able to handle everyone suddenly filling their inboxes?

    You are currently using 57 MB (2%) of your 2668 MB.

    In my defense, I use Mail.app for all my Gmail needs and semi-routinely delete all un-labeled messages from the web interface.

    You can do it with any machine using a web browser, that's what's nice about it - Compose Mail > upload your files as attachments and then save now (as a draft). Download them anywhere with a browser from your Drafts folder. :)

    Land grab, marketing**. I doubt there are really that many people using anywhere near their full allocation - that's why I was wondering whether Google could actually support everyone with a Gmail account suddenly filling their inbox.

    **EDIT: Having said that, Gmail is by 'invitation' only and Yahoo offers 1Gb for all as well.

    102/2668 or about 4%, 25% of which are in the trash. BTW, messages in my trash for over 30 days are not automatically deleted as promised by Google. Are yours?

    Nope, I tested this just to see, and indeed, Gmail never deletes them. *shrug*

    2% or 65MB of 2,669 MBs and growing.. Gmail is Infinity + 1 GB of mail space.. :cool: :cool:

    the 'spam' folder auto deletes after 30 days but the "regular" trash doesn't..:confused: :confused:

    I've been using Gmail since late sept. of '04.. first couple days of 'Gmail' i deleted mail after i read it, but now its all mail folder..:eek: :eek:

    Its the mail client im in on a daily basis, since if i dont check it for couple days i'll get like 20+ msgs to go thru.. :eek:

    that takes time to go thru :eek:
