Re: [Y-Mail] Re: Here's what works for me/David
- Thanks, Bill. The rant wasn't directed at you but it is nice of you to give us some new ideas and services that will make YAHOO! Mail wake up and give them a "run for their money", even though they are providing its services free to most people. (sigh! ..and it's a long one) Gone are the days when I was so happy with YAHOO! Mail that I always hogged them to my internet trainees and anyone who approached me to recommend a good email provider. Even when YAHOO decided to make their mail forwarding services a paid one.On Wed, Jan 16, 2013 at 2:34 AM, Bill <billsville@...> wrote:Hi Dave...no I'm not suggesting paying yahoo for anything...I was relating that I used to pay yahoo for a...I keep calling it my personal edress, but yahoo called it a Business edress...my domain was .biz...but like everything else that put yahoo on top...they discontinued itThat brought me to an independent company where I could create my own edress for almost half what I was paying yahoo and I had my email directed to my gmail account...I was a little shy of google from what I heard about them tracking you and who knew what they were doing with that info...and then around 2 months ago google said it was doing away with it's igoogle page; which is the same as My Yahoo and VERY IMPORTANT to me...google is discontinuing igoogle by the end of this yearSo that brought me to MSN...I created My Msn Pages and I'm having my email forwarded to outlook.com; which as I'm sure you know is the new name for hotmail and I Like It Very MuchDave the reason I shared this with all of you is that I read about all the problems you all are having with ymail and I just wanted to share with you all another way of going about it that might work for you as well as it does for meHere comes that "F" word again...lolololololol....Freedom...Dave I'm Not Locked In anywhere...I can switch to whichever email provider I choose without having to change my edress and as I said...I stared off paying them $21 dollars a year and now I just renewed for 5 years and got it all for $12 a years...Well worth it as far as I'm concerned and I just wanted to pass that onto all of you...I've been were you all are now and I just wanted to share with all of you what worked for meFrom The Land Of BillFrom: David Boey <sales.boeyong@...>

I am not rude nor want to sound rude, Bill, but are you telling me just because I use YAHOO! Mail FREE then I deserve all the tribulations with first, not able to mail, delete or move mails in bulk (when it was possible before YAHOO! decided to be too smart with "upgrades"?) They are upgrading their mail from an nice tasty orange to a rotten lemon! And now I can't go to the YAHOO! login page, much less check my mail or do anything else for more than a month already! I have decided to switch my email contact to gmail. No problem there except they seem a little different in design. Just takes a little "acquired taste". You want me to pay for YAHOO! Mail services? Let them untangle the mess they did to my account and then I will consider paying as you suggest. (whatever you find as unpleasantness in this mail is totally meant for YAHOO! not you personally. They are looking like more and more the YAHOO tribe in Alley Oop)On Tue, Jan 15, 2013 at 4:24 AM, Ginger CD <gingergmc@...> wrote:
Bill - I want to apologize for my poor word choice. I saw the words and not the intent. Some times we become negative with all the Spam.
