Yahoo Unlimited Storage Space
Yahoo! Mail is doing everything right to retain existing users and attract new ones.

First they completely redesigned the Yahoo! Mail interface to make it look fresh and appealing. Next is the offer queue is unlimited storage space.

John Kremer of Yahoo! Mail has just announced that Yahoo! Mail, starting today, is gradually upgrading the email accounts of all users with infinite storage space.
When it hits your account, you’ll notice the storage meter has disappeared - meaning, you just don’t have to worry about deleting old messages ever again!
Here's a quick comparison of the mailbox sizes offered by various web based email services.

GMail (Google Mail) - 2.5 GB (growing)

Windows Live Hotmail - 2 GB

Yahoo Mail! - 1 GB

Lycos Mail - 3 GB

Rediffmail - Unlimited {popular in India}

The only issue is with the email attachment sizes - Except Lycos which allows email attachments of unlimited size, all other services impose a size restriction which varies anywhere between 10 MB and 16 MB (for AOL).

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
