In response to the growing need for email storage space, Spymac Network, Inc.
announced Friday a capacity increase for all its free member Mail accounts. One

secure, Suntone Certified facility that utilizes biometrics, CCTV, key-cards,
mantraps and 24×7 on-site-security guards. Redundancy is built into Spymac’s
server cluster, allowing for fast, reliable services with virtually no down
