HistoryEdit

On April 1st, 2004, when it launched, it caught the email industry off guard, offering 1 gigabyte. Hotmail had 10 megabytes, and Yahoo 25 megabytes. Of course, Hotmail and Yahoo tried to catch up by offering up to 100 megabytes.

On Google's one year anniversary, however, just when Yahoo was upping it to 1 gigabyte, Gmail caught the industry off guard again, announcing 2 gigabytes.

In early July 2009 Gmail exited beta status.

SizeEdit

As of October 11, 2010, Gmail users have 7,581 megabytes of storage and counting. This quota increases every second, slowly but surely. It is expected to get past 100,000 megabytes in a short time.

Some features include:

  • Rich text formatting
  • Ability to quickly and easily search mail
  • Filters, forwarding, and POP
