    This is kinda funny. You will buy vbulletin, but you're too cheap to buy and use a firewall and AV software?

    You got exactly what you put into yahoo! back....Nothing.

    I wouldn't be bragging about running my business on a yahoo account.

      My first freebie email account was with, which offered "free lifetime e-mail", which only lasted a few years. On top of that, many places block access to yahoo mail and hotmail and storage limits are low.

          What's annoying is that you can't back up emails with most of web based email companies without paying a stupid POP/SMTP fee.

          Hotmail is a small exception, but you gotta use Outlook Express/Outlook

            I've been using yahoo paid e-mail service for around 6 years. Their paid service began much later though. So, it's about 4 years for free service and 2 years for paid service. They've been fine to me at least. I do make backups of important e-mails though.

              The biggest problem is.... I can't access my Yahoo Group with over 5,700 members!!! My group will just DIE without an owner. What the hell am I suppose to do now??

              I feel so helpless, violated, and basically SCREWED by Yahoo.

              I've written to the numerous forms for Yahoo regarding my "issue". No reply. Nobody will contact me. I'm just screwed.

              If anyone has any ideas of what I can do... Please share!
              Has anyone got their email back once it was deactivated??
              Please email me... HELP!

                  Yahoo does allow you to pay for their e-mail service though.
                  I've had a paid yahoo e-mail address ever since I've known how to use the intenet. That's about 7 or 8 years.
                  But when I had my account deactivated, it was able to reactive the account in only few hours after e-mailing them. And, yes, I have a paid account.
                  I am paying 9 dollars yearly although it is now 19.99 yearly. I guess my price is frozen.

                        I've been lazy -- I really need to get my own domain name for email.

                            Maybe some spam mail set off a red flag? Or someone sent you something bad out of spite. Who knows...
