30Gigs Email for Free.. Approach With Caution

  1. Om,

    I think you are making too much out of this. While 30 GBs might be nice to have, I am sure you are limited as G-mail is to only importing a certain amount of data at any one time (so as not to become a haven for digital media backups). If it does not have features that Yahoo has been touting then it is just another commodity.

  2. yeah, I think you have fallen into their marketing ploy. this is one of those fly-by-night operations. Although your comment on commoditized hardware may be partially true, I can assure you this will not scale (assuming users actually used that much space). The major fallacy here is that no one is running out of gmail space.

  3. I wouldn’t use these guys because I already have enough email addresses, but I don’t think it’s unreasonable to assume that a company could get by with a model like this. People would most likely sign up for the 30 gig limit, but most people will never even hit a gig. It’s just like Verio overselling their hosting space by several times actual capacity based on the fact that nobody hits their theoretical limits.

  4. Beyond file storage I don’t think its going to be of any utility since everyone has a email account and doesn’t want to migrate to an account who’s stability is questionable. But if they can afford 30gig storage space for free, then probably they would be better off providing free storage. with all this talk about web2.0, i can do with a online file system for storage. Perhaps gdrive which incidentally is booked by google.

  8. People across the Internet are excited about the new 30Gigs.com email service. Following the GMail way of doing things, users can only get into the 30Gigs service through an invitation. The company has big plans, too. According to the 30Gigs…

  9. yeah i heard about the terabyte sounds cool but it would take absolute ages to upload big files! with hrider you can upload bout 500mbs per file. it’s 30gigs.
    if anyone has invites for 30gigs pleeeeze send one my way thanks!!!

  10. 30gigs.com is run by the same (Daniel Saltzman) who runs MSXsecurity.com, as site dedicated to selling hacks to a popular game, Battlefield 2 from EA Games. If you look around MSX Security’s site and see Dan’s attitude, it becomes pretty clear that 30gigs.com is being set up by a dishonest crook who’s only out to make a buck. Also, I should mention that using Dan’s hacks requires downloading his “Smileys” program, which is predictably loaded with spyware. Look before you leap, people.

  11. Hi there guys just wanted to say you guys are all talking a buch bullocks. i have beenusing 30gigs.com email for a while now more than 2 months and i’m findin it loads much faster than any webmail service around. I have already sent a few invites to my friends. You dont get any spama at all. So dont critise a service before u haven’t tried it out before..so if u wanna try it go sign up. they have opened the sign up process to the publiv til the end of this month…so if i were any of you guys..i wud go and sign up as quick as possible..

  12. There are ways and hacks out there for invitations to 30gigs.. but if i were you take a look int daniel (maz) saltman.. he is a money man… he is addicted to it…a big time scammer for real. tried rippin me and a couple of my associates.. he will be very short lived believe me.. before you know it all his various sites will go down… just like him… Its known as KARMA. you have been warned all.

  13. It would be interesting to see someone write a program like gdrive for 30gigs. That way someone could fill up the whole space with non sensitive mp3 files or something and actually check to see if 30gigs will upload. My first reaction is this is too good to be true.

  14. Just like many other people I opened an account with 30gigs, but soon the trouble started, I can no longer delete email from my account, I can not even delete from my inbox.

    I delete mails and voila they pop back where they were, I tried to contact the support mail they provide on the site, but it bounces with email unknown.

    I wonder whats going to happen next, something is really wrong with 30gigs thats for sure, and I am not using that account anymore, I just hope it is not too late.

  15. ive been using this for sum time..with the couldnot open up email problem.. but only till recently i lost all my emails, so id advise not store youre important items on there unless u back them up

  16. I am pissed at 30gigs because all my mail has been erased! I checked my mail box yesterday and there was over 400 mails in one account and over 200 mails in the other account. And this morning when I checked my mailbox, it was all gone with only 6 mails in one account and 4 mails in the other account. Basically, all the mails I had received yesterday and earlier are all gone without any warning or notice.
    Second, if you are typing a really long message to a friend using 30gigs.com, when you press send, your mail will not be sent. Instead, you are sent back to the login page because the session has timed out. So after you log in, then you realize that not only have you lost your really long message but it hasn’t been sent either! This has been very frustrating.
    Third, there is no meter to tell you how much space you have left.
    Fourth, there is no customer service or someone you can contact via email to tell them of your problems!
    The only reason why I had used 30gigs.com was to store mail. Now that I have lost all my mail, I don’t think I will continue to use such an unreliable mailing system.

  17. 30GB is just another of the fly by the seat of your pants and hope you do well websites that offer alot and provide nothing.
    Not worth the time nor effort it takes to visit their site — oh, that’s right, it doesn’t exist anymore. See ya Losers!!!!

  18. They were a bunch of bastards. I was introduced to 30gigs by my college lecturer. 30gigs sounded cool and till then i had used only yahoo, gmail and rediff… none of them have shut down. i used 30gigs to store a lot of information and photographs that i used to collect. That way i kept my computer faster…

    damn one day i wake up and …whoosh .. the site is no more!

    i would like to sue them for this!
