So they are basically going to copy Yahoo and go with a 2 tier system only?

If they do 250 meg with 10 meg attachments and no advertisements (like their 2 meg free service right now) then that will be excellent. The one area they have over Yahoo will be that they don't attach any text rider onto your emails. Yahoo still does that in their free system, I believe.

I think it is great they are going 20 meg attachments on the higher-end, but still wish it was 50 or 100 meg instead. But it is a good start.

Are Hotmail Plus and MSN Premium pretty much the same thing?

Whats up with all this email space now? its like buying a house. I have a bed and a dresser in my bedroom, but I can throw in a full size SUV for no reason at all. Who is going to use like a gig or two of e-mail space? I think that 5 MB of space is plenty unless you get more spam then you do fresh air. Is it just me or is E-mail going to be the new way to beat the RIAA at their own game? :D

Next they will try to make attachments span all the SMTP servers, so if someone else is sending a file it to someone and its on the server already it won't need to be uploaded... Same with sending attachments to multiple addresses, upload once and it will send to everyone!

I think the more space the better, especially when you are sending and getting digital pictures. 4, 5 and 8 megapixel cameras make HUGE files, 2-5 meg each. This is very good news for anybody who takes and gets a lot of pics. (Y)

Wow thats good of hotmail. What would make it even better is if they would eliminate some ads on the free version. Or maybe just text ads like gmail.

Why does it say *none disclosure* rather than non disclosure? None disclosure sounds like a babelfish translation.
