what ?? my account wae 4 MB and when logining today into my account, and now 100 MB. I have signed in and signed out 10 times, to make sure that there is no problem but its 100 MB. yahoo had sent to me an email explaining the new features : 100 MB, 10 MB size of one message ..... what is the case with other ranchers ?
I got the 100 MB, as I'm too cheap to buy something cool when I can have something ok for free.
The various solutions out there for an "infinite mailbox" all stem from a hierarchical storage management (HSM) solution. In short, all the crap you insist of keeping but rarely access finds its way onto a cheaper, slower media until it's called up. The index to such archivia are kept in memory, but you still pay some time for the lookup and retrieval.
Scaling that to hundreds of thousands of users compounds the problem of maintaining a snappy request-response time lapse. But hey, that's the usual tradeoff. You want more space? Gonna cost you some time to traverse it. You want to save time? Cool, but you'll 'waste' space to achieve those savings.

It's a little slow, but that could be the issue mentioned above, plus they have a huge user base. And it looks like the backend is Perl. [ June 15, 2004: Message edited by: Gregg Bolinger ]
Damn, They did not upgrade the rocketmail accounts, which were converted to Yahoo ages back.

Mine got upgraded to 100MB today. My Yahoo Briefcase is still 30MB, which is even smaller in space than Email... It seems I should better move my files from Briefcase to EMail, which is 3 times larger....

Seems to be somewhat random - my account was converted well after most of the other announcements here, and the site is currently behaving very slowly. I'd guess they're dealing with a lot of technical problems as a result of all the conversions, and moving as fast as they can.
Although both my accounts 6 and 4 MB have been upgraded I've seen that for people from other regions this has not been the case. So maybe they are upgrading it regionally.
For international (Non US) users it might help trying to login using "mail.yahoo.com" instead of your regular international one. Also try changing your region settings to some part of USA...might work this way
