Thank you very much, much appreciated, hopefully will not get the slow down I get when using hotmail.

Hotmail just isn't delivering for me :(

The fascination is 1 GB of FREE email storage. Please tell me why this is so fascinating? What benefits do you get with this extra storage capacity for your emails? I have several email clients, and I have never yet overflowed any of my allowed capacity, including hotmail, as I delete my redundant mail messages.

The only real advantage I can see is that if both sender and recipient have Gmail, then you can send large files to one another without worrying about capacities. But there is a limit for the maximum attachment that can be handled in any one transmission, surely. That places the limitations for sending extra large files, doesn't it?

What other benefits are there, except the previlege of receiving advertisements based on the contents of you email messages? Will you not feel that you might lose some of your personal privacy?
