"You are currently using x of 2050mb"
Yet hovering over notifier still says 1000mb.

Whats going on? Thought it was only 1000mb.

Yes now that you point that out Daisuke it appears we get another 1050mb of space. That must be some sort of mistake. Rolling mouse over the notifier though shows 1000mb like Trickybleep said.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

My account also has 2050MB. What am I going to do with all that storage??

If you look in NEW FEATURES they say that as they are celebratiing their one year anniversary they are giving everyone an extra GB of storage and plan to expand beyone 2GB.

I suppose all the other webmail providers will increase their allocations to keep up, soon there will be no need for anything to be stored on our machines just copy your hard disk content to GMail.

By the way, why do I get two copies of every Gmail message when I download it into Outlook 2003?

Make sure you are not "FORWARDING" and "USE POP" in Gmail setup.

Use POP only for main everyday use.

This is courtesy of Cows Gone Mad.

I just set it up on my incredimail. What you have to do is read this
tutorial like here:


Go to the top of your gmail screen and hit settings. Look to your
right and look for pop and fowarding. Hit that and hit enable pop on
emails either that are on server now plus the new ones that come in or
the ones that come in from now on.

Thank you for that gem SaxonManFinland.

You are quite correct and I have changed my settings as suggested.

Just a rumor.
