AOL is certainly not the only one that limits the amount of mail that may be
stored. I named it as the only one *that*I*know*of* where the number of
pieces of mail counts as well as the total size of all stored mail, where two
1K letters use up more of your quota than one 2K letter does. There may well
be others, but I can't name any. That's rather different from counting one's
mail spool in one's total disk usage (e.g., Netcom).
