    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 1: 4167MB picture from my inbox.
    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.

    I'm at 4259MB in my inbox. I don't like to log out, so I'm not going to bother checking the login screen

    Yup, mine says...

    You are currently using 43 MB (1%) of your 4222 MB.

    I only logged out when I noticed it this morning to see if the change was reflected at the log in window. And to see if it was still growing.

    That makes gmail 3rd place.

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

    They are working towards infinity, but realized they can't do it.

    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

    (Yes, I realize I wasn't all that close to "no room," but I'm sort of weird about this sort of thing. :eek:)

    They recently sped up the counter, but note it's all about perception.

    Hotmail also surpasses Gmail's advertised capacity at 5GB.

    I don't have any use for my GMail account. I use it so often I have to reset the password each time. :(

    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
