    Microsoft said Wednesday that it will boost storage limits in its Hotmail Web e-mail service, a move intended to counter similar steps taken by rivals Google and Yahoo.

    The upgrade will increase Hotmail's free e-mail storage limits from 2 megabytes to 250MB and its paid e-mail service, which costs $19.95 a year, from 10MB to 2 gigabytes. The changes will begin in early July.

    "With these new offers, storage will not be an issue for MSN Hotmail customers," Blake Irving, corporate vice president of communication services for MSN, said in a statement.

    ROTFL! Imagine the days before GMail. All these webmail providers insist that they have to reduce the amount of storage space and attachment size because of "rising costs".

    After GMail was announced, the same people who said that 2MB is more than enough for FREE webmail (count yourself lucky we are giving you even 2MB, you freeloading leech!) now announces MASSIVE increases in storage space and attachment size. :roll:
