You probably know about Google's G-mail, and how it offers 1GB of space. Well, Yahoo has struck back. This message appeared in my inbox today:
I've used Yahoo for 5 or so years so far, changed account once (to switch from a US to a UK version and to change the account name), and only recently got an MSN account to use MSN messenger. I've always found Yahoo to be better, with both the e-mail and the messenger. The one annoying thing is that a few days ago I deleted a bunch of emails as I was near the space limit. If only this had happened a few days earlier :D
