    Microsoft has announced a global storage upgrade for MSN Hotmail's 260 million plus active email accounts, expanding the storage capacity to 1 gigabyte (GB) and extending the expiration period for inactive accounts from 30 days to 60 days for those accounts that are more than two years old.

    According to Microsoft, users will enjoy having more storage to keep the files, photos, and emails that matter the most. The storage upgrade and extension of the expiration period for email accounts is part of the company s ongoing commitment to meet the evolving needs of Hotmail users, as they transition to Microsoft's next generation email service, Windows Live Mail.

    The storage upgrade, which began rolling out in Asia on November 7, will affect Hotmail users in ten markets in the region, including Australia, China, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and Singapore.

    Windows Live Mail, the next generation of Web mail from Microsoft, is currently in Beta. It has been built from the ground up to be faster, safer, and simpler. Windows Live Mail will feature 2 gigabytes of storage space, 120 days expiration period, anti-phishing features, address autocomplete, and drag-and-drop functionality, making it easier to read, send, and organize email messages.

    "120 days expiration period"
    Ah well, typical Microsoft. WLM is no way better than Yahoo's beta. That was just IMO.
