Hotmail's 2mb storage

I have a hotmail account (I feel like someone in group therapy –
Tom: “Hi, my name is Tom and …. I have a hotmail account”
All: “Hi Tom!”)

and my Hotmail account’s storage is still only 2mb. I know, I know, Gmail is 2gb – I have a Gmail account too and I think it is the business but I still use the Hotmail account for the odd thing.

I have read in several places that hotmail accounts have variously been upped to 25mb and/or 250mb. I can’t see how to up the limit on my account. Every time I click on the upgrade button in hotmail, it wants me to pay for the privilige (whereas I believe Hotmail should be paying me for the privilige of reading my emails!).

Anyone know how to increase the storage on my Hotmail account (without paying!)?

  1. Thanks for that Don,

    I had already found this link which is basically the same instructions – I tried it and I now have 25mb and hopefully 250mb in the near future!



  2. Cool. It’s very handy. I mostly use my gmail account now, but I still get regular mail to my Hotmail address, and it’s nice to to have to keep clearing it out all the time.

  3. Hmmm,

    Dunno David – when I followed the instructions on the site i mentioned above, my account went to 25mb straight away. It is supposed to jump to 250mb at some stage soon! I was tired of hearing about people whose accounts were more than 2mb so i couldn’t wait!
