Outlook & Yahoo
Effective April 24, 2002, Yahoo! Mail will no longer provide free POP3 Access or Auto Mail Forwarding to Yahoo! Delivers subscribers.
You will have to pay $29.99 / year if you want to continue having your FREE POP3 access!
Sheeesh! What are the guys at Yahoo! thinking these days? For about HALF the price ($13 - $15 / year), I can show where you can get a domain name AND some web space (hosting). This will allow you to setup, download, retrieve, forward, use forwarders etc, any email from your domain. e.g. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
