"E-Mail Hijack"


          

I admit it...I saw this coming, but not so viciously. Yahoo free email client has imposed a fee of $4/month for adblockers. I have a gmail acct. I also have my own paid for MS365 Outlook, which I have not set up. Suggestions, please. Mea Culpa Randy

Yahoo mail is still a thing? Easy dump them before you do send an email to all your contacts telling them the new account details. Too many options to pay for an ad blocker.

Set up your Outlook you paid for it. You can check your gmail also with it.

Be careful sending any mass mailing to any (active) contact list, especially from an easily hijacked email system like Yahoo, as it will most likely be scrubbed and blocked as spam...

It ain't always what it seems..

Please provide a link or other information to substantiate this. I logged in to my Yahoo account(which I never use) and saw no mention of this. I also tried to Google it and only came up with third-party ad-blockers for web browsers.

Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.

Ditto.

(Though I do use Yahoo webmail.
I use their "Classic" interface.
And block ads.
And, most times, JavaScript too.)
