Yahoo! Mail Goes Unlimited

This is what you’ll see in the current login page of Yahoo! Mail. The news is over at Yahoo!’s blog.

The first time I encountered Yahoo! Mail, back in 2001, they were offering I think 4MB of mail storage space for free accounts then. This, I also think, is the primary reason how Yahoo! Mail took the front seat as regards free email service over MSN’s Hotmail, which was offering 2MB only.

From 4MB, I think it went to 6MB, then 100MB, 200MB, now 1GB.

Now you ask, “what do I get out of this development”? Well, at least it will prompt my favorite service, Gmail, to offer the same in order to directly compete.
