Yahoo! Mail 1Gb

Yahoo! Mail service to receive 1Gb update.

I have been using Gmail as my exclusive e-mail for a couple of months now and its great to hear that Yahoo! will be upgrading their mail service with 1Gb storage.

I am getting a little bit fedup with the many Gmail's bugs and sometimes lack of service altogether. Hopefully once its released from beta it would improve.

Personally I believe the advantage will be with Yahoo! mail in the long term. The holy grail of web-based e-mail will be completed once Yahoo! starts implementing technology acquired through Oddpost.

The only question left is will either Yahoo! or Gmail be implementing IMAP support?

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately can't read chinese. Damn embarrasing. Little bit of Francais can but not chinese. :p

Anyway not so important, 1Gb rolling out across Yahoo! Mail pretty soon.

I personally prefer Yahoo! Mail than Gmail, altho the advertising on Yahoo! Mail is more, comparing to Gmail. I'm not sure why, but well, just hope for a free upgrade soon... :)

The only great thing about Gmail is its uses of labels and conversations.

Labeling quite was hassel. Was a clean freak when I first got Gmail and started labeling every damn e-mail I had, but now abit lazy, most left unlabelled.

POP3 on Yahoo! is also more reliable IMO. Too bad can't save SMTP messages on the server.

Well, I'm not sure about IMAP but GMail has the option to enable POP3 right? There's really not much difference in POP3 or IMAP. Both are basically the same (functions, etc) and with GMail's POP3, I'm happy enough to be reading my emails without going to their main website. Somehow, I prefer GMail a lil' bit more compared to Yahoo Mail.

The reason I prefer IMAP is the ability to syncronised all folders as well as manipulation flag status all through Outlook (and to some extent my PDA mobile).

I have been using Gmail POP3 for sometime but find it unreliable in the presence of an ISP proxy which really annoys me. Until then I will just auto forward my Gmail to my Yahoo! UK account which I have a successful POP3 connection.

I have been getting some of my e-mails through Microsoft Exchange push e-mail system and it works wonderful, probably as good as Blackberry. Too bad its only 10Mb...
