    It's almost October, and my Hotmail account still only has 2MB! It's half full! This sux balls. Maybe I should complain to the people at Hotmail. Yes, I think that is in order.

    Hotmail is so fricking bad!!!!!!!!!!!
    I haven't been able to access my posts directly. I have to come here and find each one by hand! It keeps giving me this stupid message:

    "Your email message has been idle and this link has become inactive. To access the link, close this window and return to your Message. Then click the browser's Refresh button or close your message and reopen it. "


    Once, I spent two months with my inbox completely full of garbage because I was completely unable to reado or delete any of my messages!!! It's soooooo stupid!

    From the looks of it, there is a link once you log into hotmail where you can "Upgrade your account" to the larger size, I don't think it's automatic.

    A note for those that use Outlook to check your Hotmail.com account, apparently they have decided to start "Charging" for the ability to check mail this way due to misuse by spammers, so as you can guess it's not as good as some of you would prefer it to be.

    you have to pay for the Hotmail expansion... it comes with the Premium pack. It's only free for those who used to pay already because they get it at no extra charge!!!
    Idiots.

    Idiots? I'd like to point your attention to this page in particular. This page has a link which is present on the main hotmail screen displayed once logged into your account. Particularaly I'd like you to read where it says "More E-Mail Storage -- Get a 250MB inbox -- FREE. That's over 125 times your current e-mail storage!". You'll notice that the people that have already signed up for the premium service get a 2GB for free, not the 250 MB.

    Yeah, I know. I don't think that all hotmail account have gotten their size boost yet, but it looks like all of us shall have some 250 MB goodness in the near future, regardless of whether we pay or not. I was just trying to point out that jadedflower was WRONG.

    Here you can get as many invites as you need, with a bit of patience. You get six anyway to give away with your first gmail account...

    Just keep refreshing the page until it says something more than 0. It will.

    (tip: keep your email handy under your paste keys (Ctrl V) - much faster than typing it in)

    They've started upgrading accounts?! I guess it'll take a little time to get to mine.

    Perhaps they're doing it in alphabetical order. Hey TruthSeeker, what letter does the E-mail account that got upgraded start with? Mine starts with a "k".

    Oh, and I've had Gmail since the beginning of September, TruthSeeker, . . . so ya know.
