new yahoo settings
- hi everybody-
i just wanted to let you know that yahoo has recently updated their
includes the subscribers of this list. basically what they did is
came up with a whole new set of categories through which they can send
out unsolicited email. to prevent this, you have to go to
http://subscribe.yahoo.com/showaccount, log into your account, and
click "no" for all of the things on which you do not want to receive
email. the defualt setting is yes, which means that if you do not
change these settings before june fifteenth (sixty days after they
made this change), you are eligible to receive this unsolicted email.
i have already changed my account, and again the url to go to is
http://subscribe.yahoo.com/showaccount. also, here's what yahoo has
to say about this:

"This new page will give you more specific control over how Yahoo!
markets to you. The new categories below give you more control over
what types of messages we send you and how we send them. You can
change these at any time by visiting this page (it's linked from your
Account Information page). Please note that your Yahoo! Delivers
setting has not been changed. The newly created categories are for
Yahoo! products and services only. If you have not yet received an
email regarding your marketing preferences, please be assured that
changes will not occur before June 15th, 60 days after email notices
have been sent to all affected users. For more information, please
visit our help pages."

make sure everyone knew what was going on. thanks for being a
part of this kafka list, and take care.
