Hey all I just checked my Gmail web mail with Safari and it says I have 4167MB of storage. I searched Google and this is the only reference I can find to a storage increase. It is a google article from October 12th, 2007.

At the main Gmail login page it still reads as 2.9xxxxGB if I am logging in cold. But if I log in and then log out it reads as 4.2xxxGB and growing.

I have had Gmail since it was released in 2004. Has anyone else noticed this?

Attachment 2: 4262MB taken after I log out of my account.
Attachment 3: 2916MB taken just before logging in.

Pictures taken at 4:30pm EST.

That makes gmail 3rd place.

Yahoo's free mail is "unlimited" now.
.Mac is 10GB (but it's not free).

Gmail is infinity + 1 GB for email storage .. So Gmail is #1 :cool:
They are working towards infinity, but realized they can't do it.

google blog said:
In April 2005, we started increasing Gmail storage as part of our "Infinity+1" storage plan. At that time, we realized we'd never reach infinity, but we promised to keep giving Gmail users more space as we were able. That said, a few of you are using Gmail so much that you're running out of space, so to make good on our promise, today we're announcing we are speeding up our counter and giving out more free storage.

Yup. 4.286 GB's (at time of post).

Gmail's storage constantly increases. Look at the Gmail page, and under the title 'Lots of Space' you can see that it keeps going up, and up, and up. :)

Nice. I can stop deleting files w/ attachments. :D

You are currently using 644 MB (15%) of your 4254 MB.
(Yes, I realize I wasn't all that close to "no room," but I'm sort of weird about this sort of thing. :eek:)

Texas, unfortunately.
It's hard to come up with exact figures of "who's got more storage", but as I know it:

1.Yahoo Mail- Unlimited
2.30gigs - 30 GB
3.Hotmail- 5 GB
4.Gmail- 4.xxxxxGB
