My verizon msn account was upgraded, but my regular hotmail still sits at 2mb & 89% capacity thanks to this mornings' flush. :)

Mine was around 98 so maybe I'll see the upgrade in 06? ;) I want two gigs. :(

I'm sure MrsSkoorb wishes the exact same thing.

Maybe I should come over and show her what a gig looks like? :p

I only use my gmail for my mailing lists. The threaded view rocks for that. I've had my Hotmail account for years and it's still my main account. I can't imagine using gmail for anything critical until they go out of beta.

And lovin every minute of it. Especially since its "FREE" No need to upgrade to a premium account. And u just gotta love how you can label and organize your email so easily. The search button is a nice touch too. I can pull up past emails according to what I type in my search menu.

And its only going to get better!

Hotmail has become my toilet for spam since its so good at recieving it. I've had gmail 2 mos now and have not had any spam in my inbox or junk folder. So nice to be able to check ur email w/o looking at spam.

Just log in Hotmail and still have 2MB. I have this account years ago, way back when it was a small company before it was bought out by Microsoft. Oh well, I still like Yahoo better.
