      The following is only applicable to those list members who have Yahoo IDs.

      You may remember when you signed up for a Yahoo ID and were asked by them if
      you wished to receive any "Special Offers & Marketing Communications."

      Yahoo recently revised their privacy policy. As a result, and regardless if
      you chose to receive any of these "Special Offers" or not when you signed up
      for your Yahoo ID, Yahoo have set every single person who has a Yahoo ID (and
      those that have more than one) to "Yes" in these preferences.

      This means that you may well be inundated with even more junk mail than you
      are already receiving. In order to change your settings back to whatever you
      had them at before, you will need to log in to your account and physically
      change them.

      Login at the following URL - you will be prompted for your Yahoo ID and
      password:
      http://edit.my.yahoo.com/config/eval_profile

      The middle segment within the Member Information (email addresses) section
      has a link to: "Edit your marketing references."
      Click on this link and you will see all of your settings were changed to
      "Yes." Meaning of course that you will receive all kinds of "offers" from
      Yahoo and their "partners."

      Unless you wish to receive even more junk mail than you are already getting,
      you may wish to go through the entire page and choose whether to receive such
      notices. Also, right at the bottom of the page are other ways you could be
      notified - by phone or postal mail.
      Unless you wish to receive unsolicited phone calls and paper junk mail, you
      will need to change these settings to "No" also.

      Once you have finished your selections, make sure you click on the Save
      Changes button right at the bottom of the page.

      Yahoo is supposedly sending out notices to all its users regarding this
      particular change. However, it is estimated it will take several weeks for
      everyone to receive their notification. In the meantime ... a considerable
      amount of marketing mail could be making its way to everyone's mail boxes.

      Regards,
