Months & months after Yahoo! increased their mail account capacity to 250 MB, Hotmail has almost followed suit, not wanting to be providing storage space below its competitor.
I say almost because this is what their website login page says :
Send & receive e-mail from any Web connection. With a huge 250MB inbox* and the ability to send up to 10MB files or photos.
And the * is :
*Receive 25MB at sign-up. Please allow at least 30 days for activation of your 250MB storage to verify your email account and help prevent abuse. Microsoft Corporation reserves the right to provide 250MB inbox to free Hotmail accounts at its discretion.
Hey, I've had this Hotmail account for over 7 years now....why would you need to verify?? and what??
As always, they suck :)
