“Among crowded features they always remember, people use Gmail for email services and they always make it priority when designing new features.”
I use Gmail as my document repository, my chat history ( gTalk is awesome, when it comes to chat ), my scheduler and oxygen ( Yes, No doubt, I can not live without it until I will find better oxygen).
I have started using Gmail from 2005 and now its friendship of more than 5 years, and truly, Gmail is a great friend. It gives you ample space to use as mail repository in free edition, but free is not always enough when you are using it like oxygen. Currently they are giving away more than 8 Gigs of space for free usage which includes GMail, Picasa, Google Docs and other Google services you use which requires storage.
Recently my Gmail started to show me warning that I am almost out of space ( 95% usage )
I deleted few emails permanently from my Life ( it is bad ) but in just two more days ( in that period my clients used to send me video attachment of 15 MB ), I got this message from gMail
and as they have indicated in the warning, I was not able to send or RECEIVE emails, so I have decided to purchase additional storage rather than deleting few more emails. So I went through the process of purchasing additional email storage.
The Process :
1. Click on purchase additional storage
2. You will be given choice of plans available and their prices.
20 Gigs additional storage for 5 USD per year is not bad deal at all ( It means now you will have 20 Gigs new purchased storage + the more than 7 Gigs of Basic storage that comes for free with every account = more than 27 Gigs of storage )
3. Click on Buy 20 Gb for $5.00 per year.
4. Proceed through Google CheckOut
5. Done… But it will take 24 hours to get that space added to your account.
Now enjoy GMail.
