    Default Lycos Mail - 3GB!!

    Just accessed my lycos mail, which has remained dormant for so long, to discover that now they provide 3GB of free storage; the biggest so far. Still stay with the ever reliable and fast 1GB Yahoo mail despite the 2GB and still increasing Gmail and 3GB lycos mail.

    File attachment of Lycos Mail requires you to download and install an ActiveX CAB file Besides 3 GB mailbox size is only slightly bigger than the 2.7 GB offered by GMail which does not have this ActiveX CAB installation requirement.

    it depends on the individual i guess. ... i don't like to memorize too many email addresses so i just keep two. an extra 2 ++ gb's would not do any harm

    btw, you only receive notifications from CS huh?
