    Just checked my email, and the standard 2mb limit has been raised to 250mb-I didn't know this was going to happen. They must be trying to compete with Google's Gmail and other services that have more space. Pretty cool though-no more annoying "you're almost out of space" reminders.

    Yes, one good thing that has come of gmail is that all the other services are raising the amount of storage space.

    Yea, some people have it(my brother) others don't(me)

    It's annoying to cause my hotmail account is always overflowing, but then again, I don't really use it anymore.

    mines still at 2MB, and if i dont delete the junk daily, it will fill to the max because alot of the junkmail has some stupid attachment which makes it 100kb. i cant wait till it turns to 250MB.

    I just checked my other Hotmail account, and it's still at 2mb as well. Maybe they are going chronologically? The account that has 250mb is the one I've had for over eight years now, while my other one is a little more recent. Eh, it's probably just random.

    Thank goodness for the pioneering companies that break the iron grip of the behemoths.

    i am still at 2MB, but thats fine since its all spam. :)

    if it goes up to 250MB...well, its going to take a while to fill that up with spam...at least a couple of hours.

    Still 2 Mb for me too... :rolleyes:

    Fortunately, I have a 100 Mb Yahoo account...
     
  14. Mine just jumped up to 250 MB last night as well. Freaked the hell out of me, i thought someone accidentally paid to upgrade to a plus account and they got mine instead, or some crazy virus/hacker thingy was going on.

    None of my friends believed me that it jumped up so huge, i had to send them screenshots to prove it. Ive had my account at least 6 or 7 years and its about time i have enough space. Only 2 MB (for such a giant, well know company, even if it is free) is just ridiculous.

    I'm sure they are just gradually adding drive space and adding people on as they go along. Everyone will probably get it sooner or later.

    Bump. So has anyone's account limit been raised yet? My secondary Hotmail account is still at 2mb, but I'm lovin' my 250mb primary now-I'm not afraid to ask people to send pics anymore.

    Mine just got raised yesterday. Now I can use hotmail again. I was sort of weening myself onto yahoo, because it had a much larger inbox. Now I can't use my hotmail account again.
