A few weeks ago Yahoo! announced that in June it will be discontinuing the last of its older versions of its Yahoo! Mail service. In doing so, Yahoo! aims to move its users to the new version of the service for a better experience.
While requiring the latest version is often a necessity to help users get the most out of their mail service, it can have unintended consequences that can potentially catch users off guard – consequences like not being able to access email accounts.
Many who use Yahoo! Mail may already have received an informational email and made the switch before June. We encourage those who haven’t done so to do the same to ensure that you don’t miss out on our OWC Tips n’ Deals or OWC Hot Deals Blast. In fact, as OWC Grant and I can attest, upgrading your Yahoo! Mail account is so easy, that you may have already done so without even knowing (or at least remembering) it.
Have no clue which version of mail you’re using? Don’t fret. Yahoo! will be contacting everyone who is using an older version with information on making the switch.
So make sure you’re email is all up to date so you can get the latest news and best deals from OWC. And as always, privacy is very important to OWC. You don’t need to worry about OWC’s lists contributing to the spam in your inbox; OWC has never and will never sell, trade, or otherwise provide your information to a third party or submit your information for another list.
