Dullards... all of you...

Google GIVES you 5 GB of email space FOR FREE (who else GIVES you that much space?)

10 GB upgrade for $20/yr

Maybe you all are a little slow, or to lazy to actually check or still believe what you were told 2 yrs ago, but according to their site its not at all what you're thinking... and if you need more then 5gb of email space then you should maybe reconsider what you use gmail for or delete some emails!!

2007-11-27T13:06:00.000-08:00

Many respondents seem to be missing the point. I will pay 20 bucks in a hurry, in order to avoid visiting one more website. If its on google, I will take it even if it isn't 100%.

2007-10-25T14:32:00.000-07:00

I think that some of you users that are complaining about sort features better look again at the google howto. Not to mention, what other email providers give you half of the abilities that google does?

You can check up to 5 pop mail accounts.

Add virtually an unlimited number of email accounts that will forward mail to you so you can check it in gmail and yet appear to come from the other. All without needing to have yet another website to goto with another user name and password.

If you are worried about spam, try deleting your cookies every once in a while or using the built in filtering system.

Your complaints seem to be coming from a lack of understanding about how to use the gmail interface.

Anonymous, are you really a microsoft or yahoo marketer? Come on.

2007-09-02T09:16:00.000-07:00

If you don't renew the subscription, some of your messages will be deleted to get back into the normal quota. Google doesn't explain what messages will be deleted (those that have the biggest size, the oldest messages etc.)

What will happen if I pay $20 and use 6GB and do not pay next time? Will the account be reduced to free user with 6GB space?

2007-08-20T15:40:00.000-07:00

The 2.8GB limit wouldn't be as much of a problem if Gmail allowed you to search for mail by size. That way you could easily delete some of your largest emails. If you apply the 80/20 rule to email then 80% of your storage is consumed by 20% of your emails. I would guesstimate, however, that in most cases, more than 90% of storage is consumed by less than 10% of files/emails. I am currently near the limit. Out of over 10,000 messages in my inbox, if I were to delete the largest 100 (1% of my messages), and assuming they're about 10mb each, then I would clear up about 1gb of space!! Google, when are you going to allow searching by size??!!

2007-08-13T12:23:00.000-07:00

Well, I don't know exactly if the price is too high.

People need to understand that they already get 2 GB mail space FOR FREE. (Being a Google Apps customer, I am talking about Google Apps)

NO NORMAL person needs more than 2 GIGABYTES mail space. I mean, come on people... what did you do 4 years ago as Hotmail was having less than 5 MB mail space...

Sure, Google is not perfect. I get more than 50 spam messages every day, so their spam filter is not as good as they say.

People need to understand that a FREE MAIL provider will NEVER GUARANTEE that user accounts will not be deleted.

Look at the TOS of EVERY single free mail provider... HOTMAIL, YAHOO, LYCOS, MAIL.com, ...

Being a paying customer gives you more rights!

So you gotta ask yourself...

Want exactly do I want? Am I willing to pay some bucks for a guarantee...

2007-08-10T09:58:00.000-07:00

I have never heard a single story of people having their accounts disabled for too much storage use. I know several people that have had to clean out their mail because they were near the limit, but never have I read what is proposed.

If you go to the Gmail Google group you will see stories there, but every one that I have ever read end with the person admitting that their account was shut off because of something that they had done.

And the bit about Google needing the revenue. Are you kidding me? Yeah, every company loves to make money but "need" the revenue? Please.

2007-08-10T09:04:00.000-07:00

This does seem a bit too soon. And perhaps this will dissuade people from trying Google products. But perhaps Google needs the revenue.

Also, I think people need to realize that Google takes it's time so that there are very few bugs in Google applications, and there is time for developers to learn and use Google APIs.

Google:
I want one Google application that integrates with Google Gears and all browsers and acts as a personal Gdrive browser, like a Picasa for all Google applications that is really well integrated with the browser. Make a similar application and platform for mobiles. Let me use my GrandCentral number on my mobile with a nice interface. Let me use my GrandCentral number on VoIP phones. Integrate mobile phones with all Google applications. Make everything location-based.

Unify everything, including your APIs, so that developers can actually feel like they "learn" your APIs.

Then I won't feel apprehensive about paying for storage.

2007-08-10T07:21:00.000-07:00

Do you really think Google isn't using the same shared system that is based on the fact that 99% of the people will go nowhere near the limits? Google also has the same abuse policy (read numerous stories of people's accounts getting disabled). This extra storage on top of that is no different.

Simply put, Google is just like all the other companies after all and we are reliving history.

2007-08-10T06:30:00.000-07:00

I would be happy to pay for gmail... not for the extra storage.. but for
a) IMAP access

b) stronger filtering control (look at fastmail.fm for what I'm talking about)

c) better identity control (again, look at fastmail.fm)... no sent from me@test.com on behalf of me@gmail.com crap (this makes it difficult to unsubscribe from some mailers, and difficult to truly manage everything from one address.

2007-08-10T06:18:00.000-07:00

Kids, if you go to gmail.com you will notice that the storage ticker is still moving up. A lot of people here have made the assumption that this means that Gmail storage will freeze where it is. That doesn't appear to be the case.

2007-08-10T06:07:00.000-07:00

As far as I can tell the only things that make any other web mail better would be how yahoo and the calendar so well integrated into the mail program. Other then that from any other web mail I have used gmail is fast, faster then yahoo faster then msn's mail just fast.

Next, I personally have not used many websites for image hosting but do find it nice that picasa and google web albums so well at playing with each other, and second many free photo sites do not allow much security to your images. Sometimes I would like to invite people ( family or something ) to view my images, not the world. Google web albums lets me do this.


So with all the complaints how many people really need more then the space google offers? I say if you are using that much space and would like it safe and secure then you should not be throwing a fit for paying for it, $1.67 a month for 6GB $6.25 a month for 25GB and 41.67 a month for 250GB. Come on people they are saying you can have more space then most peoples hard drives online to access anytime for 41.67 a month. Its not that much really. And you do not think in time Yahoo will find that "Unlimited" space was not so hot of a idea? I am sure in time many other many other web services will offer free until a limit amount.

If the others do stay free I am willing to pay for my usage over 2.8GB for gmail speed, clean interface and features.

Gmail is fast, google web albums is fast. They are clean, easy to use. I think all google services could use more integration but it seems they keep busy making things better. Often they offer new things that with in days I do not know how I lived with out them.

Google is still rocking.... it is just others are beginning to catch up. Do not get scared, google has built its empire by thinking of the end users, by using there services and figuring out what is wrong with them, by finding ways to make things better that you may not even have thought of. As long as they keep this trend going and offer free usage to people ( even if there is a very reasonable limit to it ) I say they are winning.



Plus I would prefer Google to tell me o.k. You have 2.8GB to use after that you have to pay, rather then yahoo tell me that I have no limit ..... only to tell me that there actually is a limit afterI hit it. Google is being honest, thanks for telling the truth Google.

2007-08-10T05:27:00.000-07:00

Certainly google is a business and needs to make money, however, it may be losing it's "it" factor. Yahoo has unlimited *free* email storage. Microsoft has its SkyDrive, and facebook is giving google a run for its money as the new internet darling.

My advice to google. Be Careful. Those of us who are loyal users of all things google are loyal to the way google does things, not the name. Users like myself are under the impression that the storage would continue to increase (the ol' "infinity +1" propaganda).

Gmail had better get a lot better, quicker, and more integrated if Google wants me to spend any more money on more storage (which yes, I need) instead of just using another account.

2007-08-10T05:05:00.000-07:00

From the WSJ article mentioned by A:

<<

So how exactly can Yahoo, or anyone else, provide an infinity of something? Because they know that most people will never use it. Mail providers say that the vast majority of users come nowhere near their limits. One Yahoo executive conceded that a main reason for the move to "no limits" was to eliminate the perception that Gmail still offered more storage, even though Yahoo had long since caught up. (...)

Yahoo says it is removing the limits so normal mail users don't have to worry about running out of room. It also adds that it won't allow people to abuse the privilege, though it's slightly vague on what would constitute "abuse." Would that include using software to cut up your computer's hard drive into small files, and then backing it up via email? Probably. How about mailing a CD's worth of MP3s to a friend? Probably not.
