Yahoo to offer e-mail storage without end

Yahoo to offer e-mail storage without end – International Herald Tribune

Yahoo plans to offer unlimited e-mail storage to its roughly quarter of a billion users, starting in May.

The world’s biggest e-mail service said Tuesday that it would scrap its free e-mail storage limit of one gigabyte, or about a billion bytes of data, responding to explosive growth in attachment sizes as people share ever more photos, music and videos via e-mail.

Microsoft has a two gigabyte free e-mail storage limit, while Google caps its Gmail service at 2.8 gigabytes.

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