Whatever price these GMail guys demand for extra space, I think BUYING extra space for the inbox is futile when you have other alternatives as Yahoo! Mail, which offers unlimited storage now.
But if one is too much of a GMail addict, then extra space would be a must buy for him/her.
I don’t know Yahoo is offering unlimited storage!
Anyhow, it’s not easy to change email address, when you have so many contacts.
I’m quite a “Gmail addict”, but I would still prefer to do cleansing instead of buying storage. After all, all that lay in your inbox are probably not important, especially those forwarded video clips.
Fortunately, I haven’t even managed to fill up 10% of my Gmail yet.
I’m going to try and stay on top of it and start doing occasional maintenance before it gets out of control.
The “You are almost out of space for your Gmail account” message got my attention. So I paid $20 for extra storage. After the requisite 24-hour wait, nothing’s changed. I still have the warning message and they’re telling me that I’m using 99 percent of my space. I’m scared. I’m writing my weekly newspaper column about my situation. But Google probably won’t read it. (It will be published Monday, Aug. 17, at timesrecordnews.com.) Meanwhile, I’m trying to learn more about what’s what. I barely know the difference between IMPA and POP. Actually, I don’t. Hanaba
