Default Going with the theme....Any one else get this? WTF?

I use Hotmail and received this directly from Hotmail (those who use Hotmail just know when the message is authentic from Hotmail...look, feel, etc. Plus it has an admin account ID from Hotmail as the return address). Anyway, I am not a paying member. I just have a standard account with only 2MB of disk space. I'm not sure why I would automatically get upgraded, but am wondering if anyone else got this??

The thing I don't get about Gmail is that you get the ablity to send massive attachments, which is great. But if they are so huge, and you are sending it to anyone who isn't on Gmail also, they aren't going to have enough storage to hold the attachment and it'* no different as if you couldn't send it at all. Anyone else wonder about this?
