1. Yahoo! releases and 100MB email and screws me by deleting my account from 1996

    So after having a really old email address (savior@rocketmail, don't ask) forever Yahoo! has decided to delete it from my paying service because of inactivity. Huh, I coulda sworn my inactivity was because I couldn't log in for the past 4 months. Now since it's from an acquired (rocketmail) entity the only recourse I have is opening a whole new acount. So thanks Yahoo!, now I have been paying you for the past two years to screw me over and destroy my first ever email address. It probably wouldn't bother me as much, but I am a bit nostalgic about it. Maybe I can get my money back or something.

    Update: I have just been issued a refund (after being on the phone for 50 minutes) and been told my only course of action is to sign up again from scratch. I'm debating this since I don't really want as an email address. But I am curious about the updated look , etc. and since I would need to be invited to Gmail I'll just ponder this some more...

    Update: Well I gave in and got a new address, thought it's not what I would call "good." But I do like the the interface a little better. Now the question is, do I upgrade and add pop-access back into the equation? And what the heck do I possibly use this address for since I have control over my own domain? Who knows.

      Deleting my e-mail

      I was wondering if there was anyway I could delete this yahoo e-mail address cause I have another yahoo e-mail address and I don't need this one anymore.
