Hi,
for all e-mail admins out there...how can Google offer such huge inbox size and still pretend to earn some money? 
I suppose they can afford the expenses, but, what kind of space-savings strategies use they? Gzipped messages? Bzipped mailboxes? Duplicated attach detection?

I am more that curious.

Thx.
