Hotmail will offer 2GB
Microsoft wants to provide the users of its free e-mail service with the same features offered by Outlook and Outlook Express. Aside from changing the interface, Hotmail will also offer options like previewing e-mails, antiphishing features and the possibility to block and unblock certain senders. Together with the new interface, Hotmail will also increase the storage space to 2 GB. This announcement marks ending of the battle for storing space. After the 2GB amount became the industry’s standard, all players are orienting now towards increasing the quality. The changes announced by Microsoft for the Hotmail service come only one month after Yahoo announced that it’s testing a new version of its web mail client, which is based on the DHTML technology bought by Yahoo from Oddpost. Google has also introduced an html editor into its e-mail editor, Gmail, which allows formatting the text of an e-mail. The new services offered by Hotmail are just in the testing stage.
