Lycos Redesign, and Mail service Updated: 3GB FREE

Eight years ago, we was reading news like this one

"Separately, Lycos also announced Monday that it began a preview of a new design of which the company said will give users quicker access to the information they want. For the next three weeks, every fifth user visiting the site will see the redesign. Lycos will incorporate user feedback that will be launched after testing is complete.

The redesign offers a reorganized hierarchy that aids in reducing download times. Features include "Smart" Navigation relevant links; triple the number of Web guides; a new look for the Lycos Shopping Center; "drag and drop" personal pages and a simplified layout for its message boards and chat areas."

Now, Techcrunch is spotted that the "New Lycos email tops Gmail in storage, attachment size", i can say more, lycos is trying to catch up, google, yahoo, msn are launching almost twice a month new product or services. We are seeng that Lycos with this update have made a big step forward, in the catch of email supremacy. I`m shure this comeback will be appreciated by old an new lycos mebmers, and i`m shure that the number of vizitators will grow very soon. Currentlyon alexa the traffic Rank for 246

"Lycos announced today that their beta email service now offers 3 GB fre storage and allow attachments of “essentially unlimited” size to be sent and received. Gmail is currently topping out at 2.75 gigs of storage, Hotmail at 250 MB and both limit attachments to 10 MB. For $20 per year, Lycos will up the limit to 5 GB of storage.

Whether Lycos can offer search and spam filtering as good as Gmail’s remains to be seen. It also stands at a disadvantage via Gmail’s integration with the rest of Google’s offerings. Gmail’s tabbed conversations and ability to view a wide variety of file types as HTML are also features Lycos mail lacks. Links clicked in emails at Lycos can be viewed inline, without leaving your email interface - that’s nice. One way or the other, the email wars continue. "
