Hotmail, Ask Jeeves Boost Email Storage

SUMMARY: No summary available.
Nobody's matching Gmail's 1GB of storage space yet, but Hotmail and Ask Jeeves just announced they will give their email users lots more space, too, just as Yahoo! did earlier this month.

Microsoft said Wednesday it would raise Hotmail users from 2MB to a relatively dizzying 250MB of space and give its premium users 2GB of space for $19.95 (matching Yahoo!'s move for its premium customers).

Ask Jeeves, which offers email through its My Way, iWon and Excite services, will boost users from 6MB to 125MB.

The extra space means you should see fewer over-quota mailbox bounces in your delivery reports, although if you're really cynical, it could mean you'll just ending up sending more email that much longer to abandoned mailboxes.
