    Hey people

    This morning I open up my Yahoo! mail and I get this notice saying that my account size limit has been extended to 100 Mb for free! I was like wtf, this has got to be some sort of scam. But I've been checking everything and it sure is my e-mail account and everything. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't know what's going on...

    Maybe it's because I've had this account for a long long time, maybe it's because of G-Mail, anyone knows?

    It due to Gmail. They can't sit by and give you nothing when Google is giving out 1 GB.

    I just logged onto my yahoo mail and have 100MB too! This is awesome.

    Wish there was a way for me to thank the team at yahoo! :D

    2 questions

    yea- i noticed that this morning as well- and i'm very cool w/ it

    2 questions
    1) i'm having a hard time using Safari (i think i posted this somewhere else today)- anyone else having that prbm? anyone know a fix?

    2) can i use any 'mail' type programs to read yahoo mail?
    either the 'mail' from apple- or any really other mail -related prgms? to opperate yahoo mail w/o being on their website?

    Same here. My mailbox took up 45% of my space, and now it only takes up 2% :) Has it been going a lot slower for anyone else? Hopefully this won't last for very long.

    You lucky dog!

    Now if Apple's .Mac would only free up some space for its fans. A 100 bucks a year is still too much if you ask me.

    I wonder how large they will let it get, since Bulk Mail doesn't count against your quota. Also I had some serious probs with Yahoo! all day including CSS probs, page not found, and others. Seems the upgrade wasn't so seamless.
