From the site:
"One gigabyte of storage is available to all Spymac Mail accounts, effective today, Monday April 5, 2004.
Spymac agrees with the staff at Google that a 1 GB e-mail account makes sense. Millions of people rely on easy access to mail and depend on their email service to not indiscriminately delete important mail. Spymac Mail offers several advantages over other free Internet-based email. In addition to the one-gigabyte storage increase, Spymac Mail also offers both POP3 and Webmail access to the email accounts. For those wondering why on earth they would need one gigabyte for POP3 mail, don’t despair; because IMAP mail capabilities are under development and will be available very soon. Spymac Mail does not include keyword scanning for search and has no advertising."
Okay now I just got wind of this news this morning and none of the major news sites that I frequent have even mentioned it! So I anonymously mentioned this to several well known news sites and hope they pick up the story. Prior to reading this news on a newsgroup, I had never heard of the Spymac site before. Well I hope this is all good and the Spymac 1 Gig free email thing lasts. If anyone tries it please post your experiences with it here. I haven't had a chance yet to try it.
