Today while unsubscribing from NZ mailing lists and deleting old cruff, I went and found my oldest sent Gmail message, sent 26 August 2004, so I’ve been a very happy Gmail user all that time, and it’s better than I originally told my wife:
It’s easy to check from home and work, and I never have to delete any
email because I can store 1gig’s worth of stuff.
I current have 440MB of 7414MB, so all this time I’ve never had more that 5% usage.
Yes Google know lots about me, but it’s been useful. We have changed ISP three times in that period, and I’ve had three different work places, but one email the whole time.
