  • Google 1gb? pfff, try this 100gb one :)

    I just read on slashdot.org : 100 GB Email Account

    a Californian company giving out 100 GB email accounts to its customers.


    And if that isn't enough, the first to fill it up seems to get 1 TB account (LOL).

    And you thought Google's 1-GByte Gmail was big: Hellacious Riders, an online motorcycle magazine, announced that it launched a 100-GByte Email service to its users. The firm extended its offer with a challenge to THG readers for a 1000 GByte account.
    Let's get one and redirect all our email to it for 1 day, and see how that works out

    How can you have that much mail in your account? Even with hundreds of attachments in my mailbox, I don't even have a gigabyte! I fail to see why you'd need 100 GB for email alone.

        1GB is overdoing it, 100GB is like giving someone their own hosting space

            I can't see the need for anyone needing 100GB of mail storage space.

                  That is going to be a warez kiddie's dream. I hope they limit the file size of messages

                    Attachment size is up to 500Mb iirc.


                    What might be interesting is using it as a webserver.
                    You'd need one script to fetch the mail and then you could display the content of the messages.
                    For example, the message with the title "navbar" would show the nav on top or left side.

                    Then again, it probably woudn't be worth it

                      That's what I'm wondering I bet they have some extreme compression going on.

                        All these mail providers are doing it for show, to get all of you their attention.

                        They did it, didn't they?

                            Now ask us how many of us will be switching from Gamil/Hotmail/Yahoo to this new service

                              Curosity has the best of me, but how does this guy even get the funding to accomplish such a project?
