The Gmail repercussions are being felt throughout the web industry. The controversy caused by Gmail placing ads in emails, the allowance of large attachments, and of course, the 1 gigabyte of storage have all been discussed in great detail.

Gmail’s beta launch has also caused companies to attempt what Google is offering in Gmail’s storage capacity. As reported here, Spymac, a Mac-based web hosting company has already stated they would be offering email accounts with the same amount of storage for no charge.

Thanks to p2pnet.net, word is now going around of an Israeli portal called Walla getting set to offer email accounts with 1 gig worth of storage. As reported in the GlobeOnline, and Israeli online news site, Walla’s email service will be “free of charge, will include anti-spam and anti-virus services, with no obligation.”

In addition to the storage capacity, Walla is also offering the delivery of emails that are up to 30MBs in size. One thing Walla claims is that they will be the first OPERATIONAL email service that offers large storage. They say it will be operational in two months.

Now this goal may indeed beat Google’s official launch of Gmail (no known public date), but the truth of the matter is that Spymac has beaten BOTH Internet companies. Spymac’s email service is already operational.

A quote from Spymac reinforces this: “Perhaps the best kept secret on the Internet, each Spymac membership includes an e-mail account that can be accessed externally via POP3 or with Spymac Mail’s web interface. Each account includes a generous 1000 MB of storage space. Spymac Mail sends and receives millions of e-mail messages every year.”

Furthermore, Spymac is NOT in a beta stage. Their service is already fully operational.

      I guess, since this company is an Israeli company the language on the site is in Hebrew.

      Why did you sign up in the first place?

        This was originaly in english and owned by an american company.

        It should be in both languages.

        Now you cannot read, nor can you contact tech support.

        Only reason I keep it is due the fact too many business contacts have this email.

        How do you contact tech support?

    I am just wondering also what happened to the email accounts at walla.  I had several accounts that had "tubes" that I used for my Paint Shop Pro art program.

    To change language to English first login

    ???????? means More and it is second link from username toward left.
    On third dropdownmenu you can chose between two languages, english and hebrew, so if you have hebrew just chose other one and you are in english
