Did GMail just bump us up?
 
I looked on my Gmail account and it said I was using 1% of 2057mb. So now its up to 2gigs. Crazy.

And increasing.

It's set to stop at 2075 MB. I read this on another forum.

Thats because Yahoo are increasing the storage space to their webmail service to 1 gig.

Did anybody notice that Gmail doesn't offer you an option to delete messages except those in the spam folder?

I am not very confident about google now. I wonder whether there is some motive behind creating "archives" of all users' e-mails. Surely I should have the option to delete messages permanently from their servers if I wish to?

Am I missing any option? If so please tell me.

EDIT: hehehe... Just noticed the "trash" option. Must be bleary eyed now. It's nearly 10 PM and bedtime. :)

Yes they do, it's under a drop down menu at the top called "more actions" once you delete them there they go to the trash. You can permanently delete them whenever you want from there. Or that folder gets purged every 30 days.

Hey bullium,

I was ahead of you ;) See my edit above.

Click the big red link "New Features" at the top of your gmail page and read all about the plans with space, etc.

I guess space is not an issue any more, 2gigs is very little anyways. I mean its a lot of email, but we are people that don't delete emails or anything anymore. We don't care. Many people just go get another HD when one gets filled up, and so with the email, by the time you fill 2gigs of space, they will give you another 2gigs to fill..

I don't think there is anything fishy.. and I don't mind them uping the space.. and I don't think they will ever stop.
