Hotmail pro US?

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
today i received an email from a colleague. (we are both in the Royal Netherlands Navy). And he forwarded me a trick to get 25mb for my hotmail account instead of the puny 2mb. This involved changing my personal stats, stating that i lived in the US. Then close the account, re-open en voila...25mb...

First i distrusted this, tried it anyway. And it did work. If it didn't, no loss really, i use my gmail now instead of the hotmail account.





Isn't this strange? Is this just for europe,the 2mb or also other countries?



ps still 2 gmail accounts available

    Yea, the 2 MB email accounts were pretty much the norm in Europe.



    In the early 1990s.

    eventually you may even get the whole 250mb.



    Or you could use Gmail and get 1000mb from the get-go
