Your FH account comes with 250 megs. And that's generous storage with few restrictions. Microsoft is throwing space out there. If you have a second level domain MS will host your email (by having you change your MX records). That's 250 megs per email address! wow

have you made the switch? will you?

You'd get to keep all 250 megs for webstuff..

One can use GMAIL'S 2+ GB Space for your each email and even his existing gmail account too.

I've seen it before, and I personally don't like it. I only have my webmaster email on my hosting account, and I have all it's email automatically forwarded to my Gmail address, and added my webmaster identity to Gmail. So, I'm quite happy with what I currently have.Wink

You don't need gigabytes and gigabytes of space... Most emails are just plain text, less than 5KB a message. Now, if each message was 20KB or even 50KB, it would still take tens of thousands of messages to fill 1GB!

In fact, I still have all my emails since September 2004 nicely stored away in my email client (client inbuilt to Opera). All these messages (3338 in total) only takes up about 35MB.

Anyway, my ISP has an interesting email policy: The size of the email box is unlimited, but they delete messages after 45 days on boxes less than 45MB. If your email box is more than 45MB, messages are deleted after 14 days. Over 80MB, messages get delteted after 2 days (http://postoffice.tpg.com.au/advanced/usage.php). This doesn't bother me, as I usually delete my messages anyway (my email client stores them).
