Coming Soon: Unlimited E-Mail Storage from Yahoo Mail; Don't Forget 10GB from Inbox.com

Yahoo to Provide Unlimited E-mail Storage
Big news? Perhaps. Unexpected, we don't think so. For the RS team the question is, what took Yahoo so long? Yahoo has offered 1GB of mail storage for free and 2GB of storage space (Yahoo Mail Plus) for about $20/year. Mail Plus provides a bunch of features including "toss away" addresses, offline backup, and more. No word if all of Yahoo's Mail Plus features will become free.

"We are giving them no reason to ever have to delete old e-mails," Yahoo co-founder David Filo said in a phone interview. "You can keep stuff forever."

"People should think about e-mail as something where they are archiving their lives," said Filo, who remains active in managing technical operations at the Sunnyvale, California, company and carries the honorific title of Chief Yahoo.

Starting in May, the changeover to unlimited storage should take a month, said John Kremer, vice president of Yahoo Mail. "We have been closely monitoring average usage. We are comfortable that our users are far under 1 gig(abyte), on average," Kremer said by phone. "What we see are an increasing number of rich media files as consumers send more photos."

Lately, we've been using, and are very impressed with, Inbox.com. They offer 10GB (yes, 10GB) of storage space at no charge along with a powerful web-mail interface.

Update: Worth noting that Lycos offers 3GB of Mail Space at No Charge
