MSN.COM Offers 2G Storage?

My frien told me to register a new email using the MSN Explorer, which is included in Windows XP to apply a new email address. I applied one and saw I have 2000M storage space.

Is it true? I counted the zeros twice and was sure I didn’t make a mistake here. It should be a feature of MSN Hotmail Plus, but why it is free now? Puzzled. Anyway, email storage is not a *big* problem (I didn’t say it is NOT a problem) for me. Identity is. So I will stick on my exisiting hotmail address, no matter how small it is.

  1. Yes, it is true that msn has provided 2 GB of storage. Yahoo did that a couple of weeks after they heard google (not sure) was starting to provide more storage for its email accounts. It is just another case of american competition.

  2. MSN paying accounts have 2GB of storage limit, while free Hotmail or MSN accounts will have 10MB. I just don’t know if they have already activated the 10MB for the free accounts, though.

  3. MSN Hotmail Plus will be 2gb, however, free Hotmail users will get 250mb. BTW, the free 2gb you had has been fixed, it was a temporary bug :-)

  4. oh, yeah. it’s going to be 250MB. sorry, my bad! it has already been 10MB for free accounts but will be 250MB in i-don’t-know-when. :D

  5. If you go to and pay attention to the left side before you log in. Hotmail is saying that they are providing 250MB in their free services.

    But only if you look closely…

    Only people who are from certain contries are entitled to have that 250MB free inbox (I am calling it open-discrimination.) One thing I know is that China is not included.



  6. please please can someone tell how i can get an email address,i just keep getting hotmail

    i will be very grateful

  7. i want to know how to sign up for an account. i would really appreciate it.

  8. To create email address you must sign up the new account via MSN Explorer program which be integrated in Windows XP. But you can have only 2MB storage mailbox (It’s the same for all countries you’ve chose).

  9. I made a failed attempt to sign-up for the new “” email/.NET passport account, only I got as far as Installing the MSN Explorer to being utterly stumped on the whole Dial-Up Connection Portion of the Installation Process; utterly confusing and rather annoying. Then again it’s 4:25AM ET and I can’t think straight. Perhaps I’ll give it one more shot, perhaps I need to read the Options more thoroughly. (hahha).

    Thanks for the tips though, Dude!

    I was searching for how to and where to even begin for hours on end, but with this handy-dandy site of yours, I was able to get a quick jump start before my eyes went bloodshed. Thanks, again!

  10. A good while back, msn hotmail had (BLOCK) where we write our email. It is really good to have (BLOCK) right there to where all we had to do to block a person, was just to click Block right there at our hands.

    Why did you take BLOCK off of email? Why make us go throught options to find BLOCK!! ** I know that you are trying to update MSN, but please bring back (BLOCK) on email. Most of the time, the old way is better than the new.

    Thank you


  11. Hi friends,

    My hotmail, which I had signed up way back in 1999 still gives me a meagre 2 mb and I have to delete my existing mail to get new mail, and the pathetic thing also counts Junk mail to the alloted space unlike other mails which dont.

    I used MSN explorer to get a .msn email account but I fear it works as a pop email, or it doesnt act like a webbased email, may be Im mistaken, but hope it works…. yes regarding the 250 mb thing, it is really idiotic, it discriminates amongst countries…
