Yahoo Tries to Out-Free Gmail

By Deane Barker on June 15, 2004

Yahoo fortifies free e-mail to counter Google’s Gmail: It’s a huge battle to see who can give away the most free stuff. Reminds me of 1999.

Beginning Tuesday, all of Yahoo’s free e-mail accounts will be upgraded to 100 megabytes, a move spurred by Google’s plans to offer 1,000 megabytes of free storage through its Gmail service, which has remained in a test phase since early April. […]

Angling for new users, Yahoo has decided to let people begin signing up for addresses that have been inactive for years.



  1. Hello. Does anyone have an invite for Gmail? I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much! Matt
