[thelist] common disk space limits

I actually find Gmail infinitely more efficient and productive than my
100Mb limited Outlook work account.

Gmail has figured out that an inbox is used as way more than just a
message store and rather than penalise users for doing what comes
naturally (leaving things in there) or creating an extra chore (cleaning
out your inbox) they let you search all your messages quickly and

I will _literally_ do a happy dance when I no longer have to use Outlook
anymore. After 5 years I hate it more each day.

(As an aside, I still remember the days of the 6Mb Yahoo Mail limit.
Yes, you read that correctly your *entire* mailbox size limit was 6Mb.)
