Well google itself has been revolutionary and gmail seems going in the right direction. More than the 1Gb space i am interested in what search functionality gmail are talking about. Should change the way we think of email. A very advanced file search should be possible on Windows in the next versions. I think Yukon with database built into the OS.
Its funny as with cheaper computing power / storage we are allowing ourselves to become more disorganised. And leave all the hardwork to computers!!
On privacy, does such a thing exist?? I always thought emails were archived. Besides so many govt org all over the world scan all the data highways all the time!!
