Yahoo, the world's biggest e-mail service and one biggest online portal, is set to offer unlimited e-mail storage to its millions and millions of subscribers starting this May. According to the co-founder of this famous online site, David Filo, "We are giving them no reason to ever have to delete old e-mails. You can keep stuff forever." during a phone interview.

The company initially offers its e-mail users only 4 megabytes of storage roughly a decade ago. But due to latest technology, stiff competition and users' demand, Yahoo decided to go unlimited. The two big email provider rivals of Yahoo, Google and Microsoft, currently offers less than 3Gb. Thus, if Yahoo succeed on its plan, most probably it can steal million of users from its rival. Unless they also give unlimited web space as well.
