Well, I'm not actually on the GMail team, but spam filtering is an
obvious necessity with any "big target" like this. I know that we have
a team of very good engineers working on the spam issue, and I expect
it will work well. As for the storage, well - we have the capacity to
bring extra storage online pretty quickly, so as users join GMail and
start increasing their usage, we'll be able to keep up.
