Remember that Yahoo outage?...
- In case you've been seeing some new spam lately, I just received this from
Do you all remember when Yahoo went down for a few
days? Well, here's one of the changes they
implemented. Ain't that just so sweet, they signed
us all up for lots of Spam. NOT!
Yahoo has added a "marketing" area to the account set
up area of groups.
When you go into it you will see that they have set
you to "yes" on everything. I highly advise everyone
to go in and change it.
When you're logged in at Yahoogroups, click on Account
Info on the top right corner of the monitor screen.
Enter your password when prompted, then below the
listing of your email addresses, you'll see a link for
"Edit Marketing Preferences", click on that. You'll
see it's set to Yes (please send me spam) on every
option. Set them all to No, don't forget the two
the bottom of the page about phone and snail mail spam
and click the button to save it.
