After reading your warning I went to the Yahoo webmail site (my son has
a mail account) and was informed that Yahoo.com gives unlimited mail
space to it's subscribers. I myself only use yahoo,com as a forum centre
and don't use their email account. Does your warning apply to people
like me as well or only those with an active yahoo mail account?
