    Hi everyone -

    If you're a egroups (now yahoo groups) user or use any of Yahoo's services, they just did a really nasty trick to bulkmail you. The info on it is available at:

    http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/privacy/privacy-23.html

    Bottom line: They have added you to over a dozen bulkmailing lists they've set up and default selected "yes" to receive their garbage. Make sure you log into the preference section of your account to reset these options to NO before they start hitting your email address with tons of bulk mail.

    > If you want to opt out, go here and log-in:

    > groups.yahoo.com/
    > [You can also go to edit.my.yahoo.com.

    > Then scroll up to the top right corner and click on "Account Info."

    > You will be taken to your Account Information screen.
    > Look under "Member Information" on your "Yahoo ID Card." Under
    "Yahoo!

    > Select "no" for every option you don't want to receive e-mail on.
