Lycos Jumps On The 1Gb Email Train (But Not Really)
from the hey-look-at-that... dept
As expected, lots of other providers are trying to jump on the 1 gig of email train started by Google's Gmail announcement last month. Yahoo already announced their version which is actually 100mb of free storage for email and "virtually unlimited" storage for paid accounts (though the very real limits are not explained). Lycos, however, has marketing people who realize the entire focus is on that "1 gig" number and have announced that they've beaten Google to the punch by offering 1 gig of email storage today. Of course, beneath that comes the fine print that points out the one gig is only for paid users. Free users have a very Yahoo-like 100 mb.
