When people store mp3s as attachments, then share the log in details, hence sharing the mp3s.


Couldn't ever imagine using that much for real email, ever.

Was gonna say! I'm always at like way less than 1% of my storage cause I fucking hate clogging up my inbox.


Just checked my gmail now: "You are currently using 28 MB (0%) of your 3447 MB"  :hmm

I'm guessing they monitor usage and see that no one bothers to use the full amount, therefore they say "Hay guys you can have 4GB" and the people who actually want that are attracted to it.  Obviously they'll have a bit more of a complicated model than this.

If everyone actually did use 100% of their inbox then they might have to rethink it.

thats a ridiculously inefficient way of sharing mp3s, and sounds like a pain in the arse!

I find the filter pretty good compared to other free emails, I get effectively no spam at all.


Probably all the porn sites you sign up to.

as ive found out several times in the past, not deleting emails is just asking for trouble.

I never delete anything but spam, but I do tend to get a lot of emails from jobsites and recruitment agencies about the tiniest little things hah. Plus a lot of people have emailed me photos and mp3s which does seem to take up a fair bit.

Are you sure that's the problem, and not letting other people into your email  :hurrr
