Yahoo! Mail goes to infinity and beyond

www.ymailblog.com [cached]

To mark the occasion, I checked in with David Nakayama, our group vice president of engineering, for some perspective on this milestone. In case that name doesn't ring a bell, he's the developer of RocketMail, one of the world's first webmail products, which Yahoo! acquired and relaunched as Yahoo! Mail in 1997.

Dave reminisced: "I remember getting in a room to plan our RocketMail launch over a decade ago and worrying that our original plan of a 2MB quota wasn't enough, and that we needed to be radical and DOUBLE the storage to 4MB per account!
