Yahoo will reset IDs inactive for over a year on July 15
Yahoo today announced that on July 15, they will free-up email ids that have been inactive for at least 12 months. Once this is done in mid July, anyone can have a shot at scoring the Yahoo! ID they want. In mid August, users who staked a claim on certain IDs can come to Yahoo! to discover which one they got.So if you want a Yahoo! ID that’s short, sweet, and easy to remember like email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org, you can try to get yours.
If you haven’t logged into Yahoo! for over a year, but want to keep your Yahoo! ID, all you have to do is log on to any Yahoo! product before July 15th.
Well.. I am not a big fan of Yahoo mail, I used it as my primary account almost 10 years before and moved from both Yahoo and Hotmail in 2003(or 2004), when I got my Gmail address. I used my Yahoo id for few more years for chatting and once my friends also got Gmail Id, I slowly moved to Gtalk.Now I login to my Yahoo id once or twice a year, just to keep my it active. So if you are like me who just want to keep your Yahoo id(may be you can use it in future ), login to your account once in an year(as of now).
If you don’t have a good Yahoo id and wish to create one, you can try .
