yahoo has expanded their email offerings in order to compete with gmail (google's new gigabyte email service). yahoo is expanding inbox space to 100mb, improving mail search, expanding max message size, etc, & all with fewer privacy concerns than those surrounding gmail (fewer, not none).

this is good news for me because i've been using yahoo mail since 1996 when i first signed up for geocities. of course, geocities hasn't been much use to me for years, but i've had that yahoo email for so long i don't really want to get rid of it. this yahoo expansion will also give me enough inbox space that people can send me mp3s & large images without me having to immediately delete the message after downloading the attachment. i'd been saddled with a tiny 6mb inbox for quite some time (& those who hadn't been signed up for as long only had 4mb!).
