(From other thread) charris1955: Google is offering Google Talk to all its users..

And if you signup for Google Talk u get additional MB space in your gmail account i.e. from 1GB to 2526 MB.

Gmail already had extended storage of approx 2.5GB and growing before the IM solution came along...

I had > 2Gb before... and what do you mean by sign up? I've had a gmail account since the year dot - but i signed into google's jabber server for the first time on Tuesday, using my old gmail account.

If you are invited to Google Talk and don't have a GMAIL account then you will receive an invitation automatically...

I think you can also sign up for gmail out of the blue now with no invite, as long as you are in the US with a mobile phone to recieve a confirmation code....
