Dumping Yahoo Email
[EDIT UPDATE July 15, 2005: Got new password. It worked one day. Next day, new password doesn't work. Real top flight organization this Yahoo email. Screw them. This is a seriously detrimental event. Client messages and vital updates are sent to my Yahoo email. Not anymore. Losers.]
Tonight I'm dumping my Yahoo email account.
Send no more messages to it.
Yahoo demanded my username and password, I entered them correctly, I was denied access to my account. I defragmented my hard drive and deleted temporary internet files. I emptied the recycle bin. Got rid of all cookies. Still, no access.
This means I will never be able to read or respond to any the old and current emails to me at the Yahoo account.
The "sign up problems" and "log in help" functions are dysfunctional, just take me back to the log in page. The Yahoo site is unresponsive and unusable. Such a horrible usability forces me to abandon them and never return.
I can't recall all the discussion lists, newsletters, updates, comment response notifications, and other services that are going to that address. I'm screwed now, because I'll have to try to remember them all, and send a message to each service, asking them to redirect their mail to my address at Gmail. Very time-consuming.
Use this Gmail address to contact me:
