Google has doubled the capacity of its free e-mail service, Gmail, meaning users now have 2GB of storage space for their messages and attachments. This move sees Google charge further ahead of its free e-mail competitors in storage terms, as at present Microsoft's Hotmail service offers between 25MB and 250MB of storage space (depending upon which country a user signs up from), while Yahoo!'s free account offers 250MB. Yahoo's figure is however expected to jump to 1GB next month. At present Google's Gmail service still remains officially in trial mode, though with signed up users now able to offer 50 friends Gmail invites, '@gmail.com' is far from the exclusive e-mail address it once was.
