Gmail is too Small

Yo Google, Gmail accounts are too small.

Yes, 2.7 GB might seem like a lot, but having set Gmail to be an online archive of all of my email — everything gets forwarded through there, thus making it web accessible — I have spiked up to 286 MB (11% of capacity) in a scant three months. At this rate I will have hit the limit on my Gmail account within a little more than two years.

Why can’t I buy more Gmail storage? I want 10 GB, or maybe a terabyte. Honest, I’m good for it.

    Gmail is in testing phase again, probably you’ll be able to bought more storage in the future.
    At the moment the best place where to store e-mails is my iPod.

    Why don’t you just do what everybody else does, and open a new account when your current account fills up?
    Also, Gmail’s quota is constantly increasing. Back of the envelope, it’s increasing roughly as fast as you’re filling it. So, don’t panic.

    I would pay for more storage in Gmail too

  4. Michael’s right — it used to be 2 gigabytes not that long ago. If you go to the login screen you can see the amount of storage ticking upwards in (presumably) real time.

    I recommend you to forward all your email of your current Gmail account to another Gmail account. Once is full (the first one), you delete all the email and start a new one (just remember to change the forwarding to the new address) that way, you won´t have to tell people you´ve changed your address and you´ll keep all your stuff.
