I have Gmail

Had it for some time now (thanks to Brent), still don't know what to do with it; I generally don't use web-based email.

But if you have any interesting large-but-mailable files (mp3s, pictures, whatever), feel free to send them to,milovermeulen. I'm trying to see how fast I can fill up the 1GB limit... :)

I've already tried to send a cd to my gmail accounts, trying to use it as a online harddrive. But it won't accept a 50 MB mail. So i'd have to hack it into several smaller mails.

Too much hassle. I'll just put it on a memory stick ;)

the size limit is set to 4Mb, per mail ( or attached file, I'm not sure )

Alright, so if just 256 people mail me 4MB of something, I'll have reached the limit!

You can send and receive messages up to 10 megabytes (MB) total (including attachments). Any message that exceeds this limit will not be delivered to your inbox and will be returned to the sender. If you attempt to send an email that exceeds this limit, you will get an error message and your email will not be sent.

Trying to send you 9+ MB now.

Taking into account binary -> ascii uuencoding, the maximum size of file you can actually send seems to be 7MB or thereabouts.
