    Oh, and you still have over 2780.725867 megabytes (and counting) of free storage.


    Use the search box or search options to find messages quickly!
    You are currently using 2780 MB (100%) of your 2780 MB.

    Gmail had no idea that somebody could actually fill 2.8GB of space with mail!!!

    If I assume each mail to be around 50KB, then that translates to 56000 mails in your inbox!!

    You must have subscribed to all newsletters thats available on this planet. Either get a new mail address or sue gmail.

    Man thats bad! I can see why they say that u dont have to delete a single mail! Coz if u delete it, it goes to trash from where they get deleted permanently after some time. Thats what I've noticed when I tried to search for old trashed mails!
    Morale : Dont trash the males! Move them to a separate created folder!

    Doesn't that discussion group archive the mails on their site? I haven't come across any such mailing list which doesn't do this. If the messages are stored on their server then you can very well delete it from your mailbox and when needed go to their site and read from their archives.
    I wonder, if this is hosted on some small/shared server, what loads must that server be working under.

    Yes, that's quite true. GMail automatically increases your inbox's size once you reach maximum capacity. Just wait.

    It will take a lifetime for the poor guy to download 2,780 megabytes of email, even on a 256Kbps broadband connection.

    Two viable options:

    1. Get a new gmail account
    2. Use POP3 for existing gmail account in which case your mailbox size is your free space on HD ;)

    I use the second option :))

    The G In Gmail Dosen't Stand For Google Mail.
    It Stands For Grow Mail.
    That Means , Google Is Increasing The Size Of Its Mailbox By The Rate Of

    1g.b./year

    That Is

    2.5 M.b./day.

    That Is

    52 Mails/day(@ 50k Each)

    .
    The Second Choice Is As Others Say Just Create An Another Mail Id And Just Forword Some Mails From Ur Box To Ur New Mail Id So That U Need Not Change Ur Mail Id In All The Newsletters U Have Signed.
