Lycos offers free 3GB email
Lycos has just upgraded all their email and online storage services to match that of everybody else.
Lycos said Wednesday it had released a beta of the latest version of its Web-based mail service, offering users 3GB of storage and the capability to send unlimited attachments of any size. The company said Lycos Mail is intended for those who need to share large file attachments. In comparison, most other services only permit files of up to 10MB to be attached to e-mails.
Lycos said the remaining feature set of the service was essentially the same as the previous version. The webmail offering is the second service to be imported from parent company Daum Communications of Korea. In October, the service launched Lycos Planet, a version of Daum Planet, which is an interactive networking site.
There’s a catch though. The content of a Lycos Mail Basic account will be deleted if the owner does not login and check the account at least once every 30 days.
I think all other email providers are just playing catch up, otherwise, they’d all loose all their users to Yahoo! or GMail.
Since the Lycos service is ad-supported, and from the looks of it using Adsense, Google ends up winning either way.
