250MB from MSN Hotmail

Received this message from Hotmail this morning:

As a valued MSN Hotmail Member, you will receive your storage upgrade automatically in the coming days. Over the month of August we will upgrade the storage capacity of your e-mail account to 250 MB – that’s 125 times your current storage limit! We will also increase your attachment size from 1MB to 10MB. This means you will be able to store and attach more than ever and it’s free!

That is great. I registered my hotmail address in 1997 and sticked to it till today. I almost forget the miracle of hotmail of starting a company with 300,000 USD and sold it to Microsoft at 400 million two years later. The day the founder Sabeer he sold it is exactly his birthday…

    Hotmail is just one step behind the Yahoo. Now you can get a 1GB email account from Yahoo for free if you 1) open an email account in yahoo.com.cn 2) download Yahoo messenger 3)add one contact to messenger

    i have had an hotmail account since 1996 and have been using it regularly. still have 2MB quota (instead of the promised 250MB), while others opening accounts today are getting 250MB. What the f*** is microsoft doing — its been almost a year since they promised to “automatically” increase storage in the “next few months”

    hi if you want to increase your mail box to 250mb, it’s very simple operation, you need to go to your profile change your residence to USA residnce, chosse a state and chez zip code, after that you need to close your account.

    check again your mail box “SURPRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISE” you have 25Mb after that mayber 1week it’s automaticly increase to 250Mb.

    don’t worry when you close your account your mail stay in your mail box and you didn’t forget them.

    Can I get my account storage upgraded to 250 MB. I am a hotmail customer for last 5 years. What will it take to get the upgrade.


  30. KILLER

    All you have to do is to turn off Messenger and sign up in your Hotmail account. Go to options/personal and than My profile. Change your country code to USA and pick one of the states – we tried Florida and used 33332 as the zip code. After you change this, go to update than continue. While you are still logged into Hotmail go here and deactivate your account. Don’t worry – all your mails will remain safe. Now you have to go to hotmail.com and log with your username and password and you will automatically re-activate your account.

    When you log in you will see that you already have a 25MB account while it’s supposed to upgrade to 250MB soon. I did it few days ago and I am still at 25MB.

    it will surely help u dont worry guys :) …… lov u guys

  31. Carlos saldanas

    please help,


  32. KILLER
