MSN Hotmail hits 1GB storage limit

From ActiveWin.com

Microsoft Corp on Wednesday announced a global storage upgrade for MSN Hotmail accounts by increasing the storage limit from 250 MB to 1 GB. Also extended was the expiration period for inactive accounts from 30 days to 60 days for accounts that are more than two years old.

The first major player to move into the 1 GB storage limit league was Google's Gmail (in April 2004), and then raised it to 2 GB in April 2005. Yahoo! initially extended its email storage to 100 MB and then to 1 GB. Rediff extended its storage to 1 GB as well. Earlier, Hotmail had increased its storage limit to 25 MB and then to 250 MB.

It's useless stuff. No one will fill it up with text and the attachments are not so big all the time. It takes some time to fill it up with attachments received without the need to leave no free KB.
