I'm at 30% of my personal  2.072G but the only thing I don't like is 
that you can't just scroll through your
entire email cache and can't file away emails into a dozen or 2 sub files.

Grew up on netscape and usually let mail build up to 15-20,000 before 
doing a full house cleaning and
resorting into numerous archived folders.

I really love the way I can cache large files and resend fast remotely 
from gmail.
I am on a rural dialup where 24.4 is more than the usual throughput no 
matter how you try.

I , for example did  up a disk today  with close to 1000  key data files 
- 800 megs and sending it to a friend
on a high speed connection for him to upload the whole thing to a single 
dedicated gmail filebox.

I will be doing that several times and have most of my office mobile.
