Strange, I received my notice last week of the increased storage amounts, but nothing in it stated that they had removed POP or forwarding access. I just checked and my options panel still shows that area. I'm on the .ca version of Yahoo, not the .com. Perhaps that makes a difference? I would imagine that if they started this, then one wouldn't be able to use Yahoo groups in an e-mail context either. As far as I know, that hasn't been removed either, as I receive several "Groups" like this as well. Additionally this is the first I've heard of it. None of the other folks using the same access, (on my Yahoo lists or other Yahoo subscribers, I know personally) have noticed what you two are saying. <shrug> Can anyone point to any official verbiage from Yahoo confirming that this has been implemented? -- Steve +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Thursday Jun 24 2004 09:26:01 AM EDT +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ QOTD: I'm not a nerd -- I'm "socially challenged".
