You are currently using 21 MB (1%) of your 2055 MB.

If you log out of your gmail account you can see at the log in screen or at least one of them there is a counter for how much space is in a gmail account and it increases slowly and is something like 2055.7435MB its rather neat and if someone who is good at math could figure out how many Megs are added a day that would be nice. I would probably guess around a Gb a year would be added!

When it reached 2 GB the counter also stopped, so I'm sure they will update the counter on april 10th

Wow it's at 2057 now.

Why are you saying that the counter will stop on April 10th?

cos apparantly thats the time when the counter reaches 2075 and will stop. but who knows if they google will continue to increase the storage, or just leave it at that.

If you're trying to make a calculation that you're presenting as accurate, make it accurate. The fact that 100 seconds=1 minute and 40 seconds is not difficult math.

That's the way the current counter is calibrated.

I've already got 2GB with Yahoo!Mail as it is. But what's the point? I use a tiny fraction of all this space. I was fine when I only had 100MB :x

Yeah, except GMail is way easier to use, has way better search features, better organization features, less distracting junk to look at, runs faster, now holds more, and can act as file storage using a third-party file system shell extension.

But being limited to 10 MB files. :( It's still enough to store all my pictures from my camera and my mp3s, though. (Well, only if it never plans on stopping counting, or if it goes up to 10 GB.)

not to mention the fact that I've to refresh every other time I try to login as it fails to load. (Safari/IE-win/Firefox..on diff computers). This is a really unique feature ;)

Now maybe yahoo will decide to increase their storage to 2gb instead of 1.

Oh well, gmail owns.

This just means that no other company will be able to charge premium for the extra storage, because gmail has same for free.
