Over the past few days, I have received several more Gmail invites from Google themselves and also from friends. Note: Please do not request gmail accounts here, if you do, you will not get one. People are reporting the same thing over at WebmasterWorld.
Yahoo recently announced that they will be upgrading its free mail users to 100MB and 2GB of storage to its paid customers. I believe that it is enough for Yahoo to keep its long time Yahoo mail users. Switching email accounts is something no one likes to do, so the 100MB for its free users should be enough to sustain them. WebmasterWorld is currently discussing this topic now.
Will Gmail lose its flair? Yahoo and the other Web based email providers keep adding more in response to Gmail. Gmail invites are being offered left and right. The whole privacy issues with Gmail. I personally will not use Gmail daily, but will others switch?
