Agree. Although it's almost pointless to have 2 gigs or more space for your inbox, when you can send and receive (from other mails) such a small attachments.

I dont think so. It's a case of you not having to worry about the space. Gmail was never intended as a file storage mechanism and if storring large files is what you want to do theres other sites that'll meet those needs.

Yeah, I agree that attachment sizes feels more important than whatever they do to storage space. Over 1 GB and I'm not really bothered by it, but larger attachments can often feel useful. :)

Sort of pointless when you can't email zip files. :(

you CAN... you just can't e-mail zip files with executables.

It's nice to have all that space.. I'm using 21% of it.

heh yea, just rename the extension lol.

Just so you know, Gmail has started scanning within RAR. And worse, it even scans renamed RARs. So far I haven't figure out a way around it. :pinch:

Sweet. I've hit the silly 10Mb attachment limit in the past, so this is good news for me.

P.S I'm using 20% of my storage.
