Receiving ETH in Myetherwallet

If the wallet is empty (first time use), is there a maximum you can receive? i.e. do you need to add a small amount first to cover the gas?

    There is no limit to the amount you can hold in a wallet created with MyEtherWallet. Think of it more like an interface to the blockchain directly, rather than a service which "holds" your funds for you like a bank. However, it is good practice to first send 0.01 Ether to your wallet first to make sure that you're sending to the correct address, the gas cost should be estimated automatically for you.
