      FWIW, "plain old yahoo mail" is still free and Yahoo has
      announced no intention of changing it. Certain forwarding and pick-
      up methods are becoming premium services. (I believe Yahoo is
      one of the last major "free email" providers to do this.)

      IMHO, it's not a very well supported rumour. So far the Yahoo
      services that have changed were unfunded freebies -- it makes
      sense that Yahoo is making them pay-to-play. YahooGroups, on
      the other hand, provides substantial advertising revenue already.

      (If they *do* decide to charge for groups, I'll just more the dozen or
      so I manage back to my own servers where they originated in the
      first place. ;)

      But then, none of this is particularly relevant to EKSouth... =>
