Vole??? and any idea if there is an official ms.com source or something?

I would say http://www.theinquirer.net/ is pretty official IMO...

hehe, yeah, go for the inq!
i'm on gmx currently with 1gb..

1GB for gmail, 2GB for hotmail, for email they both effectively mean infinite storage for most people. When you get that much space, I think features are a lot more important.

Does anyone else find the buttons in Hotmail really small and inconveniently placed? If I want to download an attachment, I want a big shiney button saying download on the 'Virus not found page'.
Anyway, I prefer email clients.

the design of hotmail is... different.. yes.. but quite okay.. if you're trained to symbol-bar-applications
then again, my 1gb gmx account in outlook is great, too

i think the layout of hotmail is really nice! maybe a bit slow when it needs to load all these graphics but i would say it's up to the users themself.. i've done good with only 2 mb of space in 3 years now! well i don't say no to 2 gb!

i prefer mail clients anyways.. dunno.. i don't like html for tasks/applications anyways (i don't like it at all actually). reall applications are just much more efficient to use.

The Notifier briefly stores email snippets — the small bit of text from the first few lines of your unread messages — in temporary memory on your computer. It does not permanently store any data nor does it transmit any data back to Google.
Gmail was good to begin with and has quickly responded to all problems except those which simply cannot be reconciled without halting gmail completely.

the best thing of gmail is the lone fact that it exists. now we get everywhere huge spaces for mail.. we would never have that by today.. thanks google!

I often move between many computers so I cant use a normal email client
nomadrock at August 26th, 2004 09:13 — #14
I can walk into any computer and open up a webpage all other options are much more difficult.
When I say many computers I mean many random computers, often ones I will only ever use once.

I prefer using a mail client, and I don't care so much about space either (not that I don't want 1+ GB...). However, Gmail might be 1 GB, Hotmail might be 2 GB, but do either of them offer POP3 access?
davepermen at August 28th, 2004 12:44 — #17
gmx does, and has one gb for free.
it doesn't look like the hotmail offering is for free actually. because i have an offering to pay for getting 2gb on hotmail.
i'm happy with gmx. 1gb, free, pop/mail.
nomadrock at August 28th, 2004 13:35 — #18
pop access means nothing to me since I use the web interface. That is the whole reason for wanting a provider. Otherwise just about anything would work.
davepermen at August 29th, 2004 09:00 — #19
but pop is important anyone, even while you personally don't care, you understand that it's the standard for anyone, just as is html access..
nomadrock at August 29th, 2004 14:50 — #20
I consider webmail and popmail to be different entities. I have no need or desier for popmail I do however need webmail. Gmail is webmail.
I do understand your point though, but keep in mind that just because you want your desktop interface, many people are happy with the web interface alone.
