   Re: [xml-dev] (OT) Infinite email storage

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I think Google is quite serious.. 

A line at the bottom "within my Google account" displays 
You are currently using 4 MB (0%) of your 1796 MB. And my used
percentage (0%) is always same.
The figure 1796 is constantly increasing (with a fixed rate). 

So it seems there is "no space limit".

Of cousrse Gmail cannot claim all strorage space in the Universe(this
includes space on Hotmail and Yahoo servers and also on my m/c). So
practically its not possible.

I think what there intention is: They are commiting that we will get
"constantly increasing GBs". So lets say after 5 years, my space will
be something like 100 GB. But that counter is just stored in there
software. The space on their servers is still same! But users will get
illusion that they are working with unlimited space.

(Oh now I have 1803 MB as I finish this message)

Best regards,
