Risk is something which can be difficult to evaluate for the average person, there is a lot of work which goes in to learning not to do the two things that people usually do when they are confronted with risk:

  1. Ignore
  2. Overreact

GMail Quota and Statistics (follow-up) #google #gmail #dashboard

On August 11th 2007 I exceeded my quota, I blogged about it here. At that time they, , told me that I had:

Over 2887.350465 megabytes (and counting) of free storage so you’ll never need to delete another message.

On that day I was surprises when people trying to mail me suddenly started getting:

Remote host said: 552 5.2.2 User over quota m24si4251221waf [RCPT_TO]

It naturally annoyed me that I was not warned that I was outgrowing my mailbox.

Today I’m absolutely and unequivocally over the quota once allocated to me:

You are currently using 5610MB (75%) of your 7459MB.

And it doubt that I shall reaching that limit any time soon, although I am still unwilling to subscribe to high volume the current count reads:

Over 7460.019087 megabytes (and counting) of free storage.[*]

I’m also glad to see that they removed the obvious lie:

[…] so you’ll never need to delete another message.

Now is proud to announce that I have 143000 conversations[*], with 31000 conversations[*] in my inbox with 5675 unread and 6061 total mails.

  1. frontpage (only visible when logged out)
  2. This is obviously an average, or so I assume.
