    Talking Yahoo!

    They're definitely the best email-service on the Web! Today I got this message:

    From a Yahoo Service Announcement Email

    Notice: Change of service to your Yahoo! Mail account


    Dear Yahoo! Mail User,

    Thanks for using Yahoo! Mail. It's our goal to offer you an email experience that makes it easy and enjoyable to stay in touch. Periodically, we make service changes to enhance that experience for our users. As of June 15, 2004, you'll enjoy the following benefits:

    * Increased storage capacity – from your current level to 100MB
    * Increase in total message size to 10MB
    * A streamlined interface that's even easier to use

    You will continue to access your Yahoo! Mail account as usual. No further action is required, and there will be no interruption of your service.

    We hope you enjoy the new features and benefits. If you have any questions, please visit our Help page. Thanks again for using Yahoo! Mail.

    Sincerely,

    Comcast has almost no restrictions besides no spamming. But they are not a free service either... it comes with my cable internet.

    I also noticed that they went to XHTML!! Though, it's still nowhere near valid But definitely way beter than before. And 100MB is more than I'll ever need, considering I delete everything right after I read it.

    I didn't see that they had gone XHTML. That's pretty awesome, even though it's not valid. I have two Yahoo accounts, so I got all the room I need!

    The reason Yahoo changed the amount of space is because Google's e-mail storage is going to make anything else from a free service look like a drop of water in a lake. Yahoo didn't want to get run over by Google yet again. Also note that Google's GMail service will still allow for much more stoarge that what even Yahoo's new amount will.

    1Gig may be a lot but I am not going to go through the hassle of having another email address

    Holly cow! (In light of Jick.) That's a lot of space! Knowing me, I'll probably get another email address... The interface doesn't look all that great, though. I like Y!'s...

    I do not care what they use, I want valid. I would be just as thirlled if it were valid html 4.01 strict as xhtml 1.1 or 1.0 strict.
