Yahoo!!

Anyone else thrilled by the improvements in the freebie Yahoo mail client just announced this morning? Wonder if this is a preemptive strike against the coming Google Mail...

Re: Yahoo!!

it just provides more space for junk mail and allows them to scan your incoming for key words to hit you with more advertising. now if the chick on the right is there every morning when you open it, it may be worth it.

Re: Yahoo!!

Bubba, the mail storage went from 4MB to a whopping 100MB. Now I can send 10MB files on individual e-mail messages as well.

Conq, the change says effective June 15th - I'd would have guessed it was all users.

???

but you are paying a price (maybe not monetary) = your privacy

Send a message via Yahoo to firedawgon929
Re: Yahoo!!

why? Your ISP doesn't provide email? I much prefer using outlook.

No matter how beautiful a woman may be, some man somewhere is sick of her sh!t.

I'm with Chain on this one, I know for a fact I wont have my ISP my whole life so every so often I'll have to change my email address and tell everyone my new one...too much of a PITA (some of us dont believe in that "work" crap), I'll have my current yahoo mail for life so no need to worry. Yahoo!! is the only way to go for email

Re: Yahoo!!

That's why I own several of my own domains... Then my e-mail address never changes no matter where I go.

Free ads included....
Free spam included...
Forced to use the web interface instead of a real mail client...

No thanks.

Plus, no free e-mail service e-mail addresses are allowed to be used to sign up here. (Other than members who joined before that change was made.) Too easy for lamers to keep getting new e-mail addresses to sign up additional accounts.

I hear what you're saying, but quite frankly I don't get alot of spam with Yahoo. Hotmail, whew, that's another story.

Long story short, I just like keeping the same e-mail address despite ISP changes (we don't all need domain names like folks running websites such as yourself of course) and being able to check my mail from home or office is nice too. They won't let us pull POP3 from work. Something about a firewall or somesuch.

Re: Yahoo!!

Not thrilled at all, still trying to understand if they are "reading" my mail like the new Google service to tailor ads to me. This whole e-mail bullshit is making me seriously consider setting up my own thing. After a certain amount of time, that is small, you have lost privacy rights to your old e-mail as well.
