    There's more in store with Yahoo! Mail. By early May, all free Yahoo! Mail users will receive an email storage increase to a whopping 1GB. That's enough space to keep thousands and thousands of emails -- so you'll never have to delete those important messages again! Mail Plus will continue to offer a virtually unlimited 2GB of storage.

    lol@ rabbi...
    @bobby: ... yeah all these email companies seem to have started a race on "who provides the most storage space!" .. gmail started this followed by hotmail (250mb) and now yahoo with 1 gb, to be honest i dont see any point!! ... i think 100 mb's is more than enuff for a regular user, the advanced users can pay for the storage, anyways.... more is always better, u neva know when you might need it.

    select "personal" from the task panel on the left
    Click My Profile
    Change Country to United States
    Wait for browser to Load US Settings
    Change state to Florida and Zip Code to 33332
    Click Update
    Click Continue

    Go to Language and Make sure it is English
    Paste this link in Same Browser : http://by17fd.bay17.hotmail.msn.com/cgi-bin/AccountClose

    Wait until the screen says Your Hotmail account is closed and ready to be deleted.
    Click Close Account. (THIS DOES NOT DELETE YOUR EMAILS)

    Go Back to Login and relogin to ur Account
    Go on following the procedure by hotmail
    No email will be deleted from ur account and now ur account size limit increase to 250MB.

    Enjoy!!!!!!

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    I easily use up 1 GB of space in my e-mail. No I don't get craploads of spam. I use it as storage space for songs I want to share with others.
