(Newser) – When Gmail launched in 2004, its slogan was "never delete an e-mail again." Six years of ever-expanding attachments later, a few users have maxed out and, well, needed to delete an email. Again. Mashable congratulates Mike Monteiro, the most recent person to use all of the allotted 7.3GB or so. It's still quite a feat, but "if we could offer one tip to the big G, it might be to remove that 'Who needs to delete when you have so much storage?!' line from the Gmail Trash folder," writes Christina Warren.
