Microsoft realized that people will NEVER start buying their extended large memory hotmail accounts because it is simply stupid to pay for internet-based email.

I have other exciting ways to spend my money.

GMAIL invites sent to Hotmail are automatically deleted.
GMAIL invites sent to Yahoo are filtered to the Bulk Folder.

Interesting :)

What a bunch of bullsh*t.... i got my gmail invite at Hotmail as well and so did 7-8 friends i sent invitations to.


Yahoo on the other hand sends Gmail invites directly to the Trash folder.



Since MSN was my ISP last year, i have a 10MB hotmail account as of now which is set to be increased to 2 GB shortly.

Weird, 'cause my Gmail invitation didn't go to the Trash folder nor the Bulk folder. It went into my inbox like any other email from a friend.

That's all myth.

As for Hotmail improving, I am happy, but is it just me, or is Hotmail really fvcked up right now. I mean I know its always messed up, but right now, noting looks right and it tends to crash IE.

Tell me something, what do you need 100MB of EMAIL storage space for?

And for the hotmail people.. I don't know what possessed you to take so much self inflicted pain.. I stopped using hotmail when I realied it was trash 6 years ago. And that was before Microsoft bought the junk and made it even worse.

Martin, what do you use now?

And just a little side note, many people use their 100mb. You dont understand how many girls (like my sisters) there are in this world and just send pictures back and forth and fill up their accounts. My sister had like 5 yahooo and 3 hotmail accounts for all her e-mails. Woman like to archive their e-mails. So i guess 100-200 mb is a good . But Gmails 1000mb is too much. But they dont care. Its all marketing. They offer the public up to 1000mb email space, but how many people do you thnk actualy will use that 1000mb. 90% of peple will barely use even 5% of that 1000mb.

Its all just tactics to get more people to sign up with them.

Not only that, they reserve to disallow you to delete any email you get/send and the right to index it for searching.

Ok I see your point but Yahoo's 100mb should be enough then. And Yahoo is just sooo much better than Hotmail. For webmail I use yahoo, for everything else I run my own mailserver.
