    So, I was checking my GMail account, which I have had for a couple years now, and saw that I was using just over 100 MB of my 7 GB of storage. I wonder if that is typical?

    How much are you using? (Screen shots would be nice.)

    Here's mine.:apple:

    Forgot to mention, so heres the edit:

    Include how long you have had you account.

    I use MobileMe, but it's basically the same so I thought I'd add.

    I don't ever delete e-mail from GMail (even ads and junk mail like that that I opted in for), except for marking spam as spam. I still have only used 600 MB since 11/2005. So if they continue to expand capacity at the rate that they have, I don't think I'll ever really need to delete mail from Gmail.

    I get far fewer attachments at GMail than at my work e-mails, though. My University of Florida e-mail for graduate school from 2004-present is several gigabytes.

    I'm using 186MB (2%) of 7303MB. I keep my inbox well cleaned, but I actually still have the welcome email from the GMail team. It seems I opened my account on 2 Sep 2004. I didn't start using it as my primary account until around 2006, though. I remember hearing that Google was going to offer 1GB of storage in email accounts, and thinking it was a joke. Guess the joke was on me.

    If I recall correctly, they actually launched on April Fools day in 2004, which didn't help their credibility.

    I've been using Gmail since around 2004. I got it back when Gmail invitations were actually sought after. Remember that?

    I got my Gmail account at the end of 2006 and started using it as my main email account then. Before I had AOL and Gmail is so much better. I really love it!

    You are currently using 516 MB (7%) of your 7307 MB

    I get sent a lot of PDFs on upcoming projects. It's pretty big when you think about the days when Gmail were offering only 1GB of email and most people then thought it was excessive. Or least I thought it was excessive.

    I set up my google apps email address about 15 months ago, and since then I haven't deleted any messages I've sent or received. My line reads:

    You are currently using 917 MB (12%) of your 7303 MB.​

    Since 2005. That extra space is such a tease.
