Yahoo Mail – Deactivated

I was able to use Yahoo services such as Flickr, since I’m constantly using it and updating and checking pictures. But I think it has been at least since November or October of last year that I checked my Yahoo account. I wanted to log-in and see if they have changed the interface or made any changes since last year. When I tried logging in, I was told that my account was deactivated and I would have to go through a process to reactivate it, registered an emergency email, went through the hoops again of registering information, and all my previous mail and contacts were wiped but I wasn’t too worried since I didn’t use it for much, or don’t remember using it. Now it states that if I don’t check it for four months it will deactivate again or I should buy Yahoo Mail Plus so that it doesn’t deactivate. Yahoo’s interface is much better then hotmail, but GMail is still far in the lead. But in the numbers game Yahoo is number 1, Hotmail/Live is number 2, and GMail is number 3, and they are all still growing.

  1. I’m surprised to learn that Gmail is 3rd! It’s the best out there… Goes to show that people don’t move as easily as we think.

    I’m suprised anyone considers gmail #1, I’ve had it since it came out, there is nothing special about it other then how it handles conversations. Everything else is what you would expect in email. I think some people just get the google rose glasses and think if it’s google its the greatest thing on earth.

  3. Don’t you think gmail loads faster yahoo and hotmail hmmm?
