As far as I know, your friend actually invited you so he/she could get some extra space. They don't do it automatically, you need to put your friend's email there or import your contacts from your webmail.


This is just an invite from a friend, if you refer someone you get extra space added to your account


AKA Spam-by-proxy...


that might be true, but you could also say it for every other internet application.. facebook (share with friends) etc


Indeed, and I do :)
