Hotmail Reloaded.

Hotmail finally decided to do something for its customers without extorting money from them, and is now offering a 250 MB inbox for new users after a one month verification period, along with 10 MB attachments. However, the older accounts of Hotmail are still stuck at a paltry 2 MB. So do we now have to sign up again to get a larger inbox or are they imposing a one month period for 3 year users of Hotmail as well?

You have to change otherwise you will be kicked out of the competition.

I wasn't very pleased to see that my inbox is still showing 2MB of storage when those who sign up fresh get 25 MB. I think hotmail wants to increase the number of people signing up - but still it can't expect us to switch to new accounts overnight just for 25 MB! Gosh!
