BBC Online looks at web-based email services in the article: E-mail is the new database. Comments from Google's Georges Harik include the fact that Gmail is "very profitable" for Google. How profitable? Harik doesn't say. Yahoo Mail (which is also searchable), Hotmail, and AOL Mail are also mentioned.
