Google broke its promise to me. It told me I would never need to delete another email using gmail. But over the last few months I have been constantly coming up to the limit and needing to delete emails....I finally caved and bought their first level surplus storage plan. It REALLY pains me - not because I think it's expensive or not worth it...but because Google made me change my emailing habits with a promise and now they broke that promise. I am going to start thinking of alternatives....I'm no longer exclusive Google.
