    100 MB is currently a $60 upgrade at Yahoo.

    I'm paying for $30 for 25 MB and the other "Plus" features.

    Hard to believe they're going to make up for that lost revenue with ads inserted in e-mails.

    I love this doublespeak: Yahoo first announced that their premium users would get "virtually unlimited" storage space. Sounds like it's more than competitor Google's 1GB, right? However, when pressed, a Yahoo spokesperson defined "virtually unlimited" as 1GB!

    it's like a bad breakup between yahoo and google.
    they break up, yahoo finds it's own search engine to out-do google, then google tries to show off to it's ex with GMail, now yahoo's trying to get back at google with new yahoo mail. wow. what will be next?

    Hopefully hotmail will follow by increasing their storage limit too. I think it is something ridiculously small, like 2MB, right now. Plus, mail in the junk box counts towards your storage limit, unlike Yahoo's policy. Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft made no changes to hotmail.

    Bah, CrispyMail already has 100MB of mail space. The service is no joke, either, since I've been sending and receiving test emails in under a minute.
