Many are linking gmail email login with selling your soul to the devil. Will you fall into a 1GB storage temptation to sell your privacy? Well I personally don’t believe these privacy allegations, but you have to make up your own mind.
Also please let me tell you that as of April 1, 2005, Google upgraded all email accounts to 2GB storage, and as a added gimmick, that amount is constantly growing at approximately 3.5 MB a day (this rate constantly changes). As of the 6th of August, 2005, the size of all Gmail accounts was at 2465 MB.
Since Gmail is currently in invitation-only beta, if you would like to join, please use this Gmail Invite Request Form and I will happily send you an invitation.
Yahoo Mail –
Yahoo Mail is currently the 2nd largest email provider in the world, just behind Hotmail. Before Gmail was introduced, it gave 4MB of space to free users, double what Hotmail offered. To compete with Google’s Gmail, Yahoo has now increased their email capacity to a massive 1GB. Of course, since Gmail increased their accounts to 2GB, Yahoo is still 2nd to the new email giant.
Ignoring storage space for a while, Yahoo Mail is a pretty robust email service. It’s ads are considerably smaller and less obtrusive than Hotmail’s, and is not contextual like Gmail’s. It’s interface is slower than Gmail’s and around the same speed as that of Hotmail. It has very good spam and virus filters, and also works great with other Yahoo products such as Yahoo Messenger. Also when you sign up for Yahoo Mail, your Yahoo ID can be used for practically everything else Yahoo.
