On its one year birthday (April Fool’s Day), Google announced it would expand storage capacity for gMail from 1 GB to 2 GB. Regular users of the service may be more interested in the ease with which the Google search engine finds "old" mail than a storage capability larger than most can envision. Yahoo! recently announced it was expanding its mail storage to 1 GB. Hotmail storage jumped to 250 MB in June 2004.
