Damn you’ve gotta love competition! Over the last few days I’ve noticed that my Yahoo! Mail’s spam folder was holding a ton of messages, but they weren’t chewing up my allotted storage space as they usually do. Today I discovered why — Yahoo! has changed their policy so that now the bulk/spam folder no longer counts towards a user’s space allotment. They’ve clearly done this to combat the flood of people who would have switched to Google’s GMail, which gives users 1 gigabyte of storage for free. And I was itching to make that move. Yahoo was wise to make this change in policy b/c now I don’t really see the need to switch and I’m sure thousands of other people will feel the same. Now they need to make POP/IMAP access free as well.
