Yahoo! bulkmail


TRIBE Member
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:


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.
