Yahoo Boosting E-Mail Storage

June 15, 2004|From Associated Press

Internet giant Yahoo Inc. is fortifying its free e-mail service with 25 times as much storage in an effort to thwart a looming threat from its increasingly disruptive rival Google Inc.

Beginning today, all of Yahoo's free e-mail accounts will be upgraded to 100 megabytes, a move spurred by Google's plans to offer 1,000 megabytes of free storage through its Gmail service, which has remained in a test phase since early April.

Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Yahoo had been offering 4 megabytes of free e-mail storage.
