Update: as a couple of folks have pointed out, Google has once again increased the storage size of Gmail to 4.23GB, just a day or two after the increase to 3.6GB.

Thanks Google!

    I noticed that too. I assume this is related to the ramp up to 6GB by next year that was reported on the Google blog a bit ago.

    Why don’t they just go the route of YAHOO and just get rid of email storage limits PERIOD?

    Hey! don’t you know? Yahoo! has removed this storage limit completely for free!!
    That means you have unlimited storage size for all your mails and all for free!!

    After slowly increasing their storage space forever, Gmail really has just shot through the roof in the last few days.

    @Akma, BEB:

    I feel free POP and/or IMAP access (as I’m still waiting for one of my Apps domains to get IMAP) is far more important than unlimited storage of RE:FW:fw:FW:fwd: Check htis uot! emails. ;-)

    @Colin:

    Amen. Gmail’s spam filters are far better than both Yahoo and Hotmail/MSN. Admittedly, I do get the occasional false-positive, but I’d way rather the occasional legit mail in my spam folder than constant spam in my inbox. Also, Yahoo’s ‘new’ interface is freaking deathly slow.
