inbox.com is same as gmail but a better layout (imho) I have both by the way & use them for different reasons. Take up the gmail offer.

My own (private) server is the best IMHO as I have full and complete control over every single aspect ;)

I'm not sure if there is a maximum size...
but you can see the info for yourself at the url linked below...

http://mail.google.com/mail/help/about.html

See as how GMAIL is free, try it and see if it works for you, if it doesn't, just don't use it. Not a big deal.

Once you get an account, after about a month of use, you will be given 50 accounts to give away (to others or yourself). I have around 6 accounts that I have used, they have upped my level to 100 per account, so there are 600 accounts I can pass on to others.
