    Is it just me or is Spymac incredibly slow?? Just trying to get the mail page to load takes forever. It's even worse when you want to write messages!! I'm not sure is 1 gig of space is worth the slowness....

    Everytime is slow for me. On top of that, I think it's pretty buggy. I tried to send some emails that were only like 3 sentences long, and I get an error saying that the message is too big! :confused:

    I was using it for a little, but I had to stop. It crawled all the time.

    I'm still wondering how in the hell they are paying for all these free services offered to 10's of thousands of members (inc. me :D)...it just baffles me :confused:

    i doubt they automatically set aside 1gb of space. i bet each user only uses as much space on the server as info they have on it. if a user signs up and never uses the service, only a few bytes are used, not a full gig.

    Yeah, and I bet that very few (if any at all) have even reached 1GB. You seriously need to attempt to fill up that thing to realize just how big 1GB of mail is. Even if you get emails with video clips attached, you need a lot of big media clips (or a few .dv files) to put in there to fill that space.

    I know that most will probably never use it (just like gmail), but with all their other services (gallery, blog, hosting etc) the bandwidth and disk usage must be HUGE!

    Only SpyMac would be [drugged up] enough to want to do that. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
