    Yahoo
    Yahoo offers upgraded mail service for a fee. If you wish to have the upgraded services from them you will have to contract with them for that service.

    Does Yahoo offer a basic email for free?

    If so, can I use their free email and my other internet provider email?

    Yes, I've been using Yahoo as my main email account for years. I also have my ISP email account that I rarely use.

    Service
    Both Yahoo and hotmail

    www.yahoo.com

    www.hotmail.com

    And to be honest lots of other places, from church sites, and others that offer free web sites.

    If you merely do a web search for free web sites you will find several.
    I have had a hotmail for almost 12 years now and a Yahoo for 9 years I believe.

    No matter where I move I can get email.

    A funny note there are a lot of homeless people that even have free web sites and free email so they can check it from various shelters, public buildings and the such.

    Thank you
    I realize what you are saying perhaps I didn't pose my question properly.
    I have Yahoo.mail but it is very basic. I wanted to upgrade and wondered if I could find Free Upgrade to Yahoo mail they want you to pay for it.

    I have Yahoo mail as well (the free, basica one, with 1 GB of storage).

    Why do you think it is basic? Personally, I am quite happy with it.

    The same answers apply. To upgrade to the features in the pay version, you have to pay! Why does that logic escape you? Getting those fee based enhancements without paying for them would be theft of services.

    Okay
    It was a question, that is all. Did I ask if someone could help me steal services from Yahoo? No. I wanted to add some cool stuff to my outgoing emails, besides smilies. I was looking for stationary, fonts, etc. that were free and compatible with Yahoo mail. I came on this help board to inquire if anyone knew how to go about achieving such a LEGAL task, (if I may). Cap if you are satisfied with basic, good for you. But, since I have to be told homeless people can achieve this, and be accused of trying to thieve, what's the point in this help desk?

    In the future a better way to ask this question may have been: "I have Yahoo maill. I want to add some cool stuff to my outgoing emails, besides smilies. I was looking for stationary, fonts, etc., that were free and compatible with Yahoo mail."

    Instead you asked how to get premium pay-for services for free. Since this is a reputable question and answer site you will certainly get answers questioning your integrity with that line of questioning.

    Having said that...
    Email seems to be going the other direction, that is away from the horrible Incredimail-style types of emails full of animations, backgrounds and sounds. People simply want text, attachments and hyperlinks. If you have the option of using html email formatting you can format your mails many ways but the receiving end may not see what you sent if they have their mail set to rich text or plain text.

    Free
    Actually yes, trying to get someone to give you a download that is copywritten or that is contractional paid for and getting it without paying is stealing.

    It is down daily by many on the internet. The Yahoo group since you are logging onto their server knows and controls the content from their end, so they would know if you did not have or were not using their approved version.

    Both of those questions are clearly asking for help getting services that Yahoo charges for without paying. I don't think there can be any other interpretation for them.

    Now you are changing the question radically. Now you are asking not for services that Yahoo charges extra for, but for free e-mail addons that might be used with Yahoo. Had you made that request initially, the reaction would have been different.

    The point of this help desk is to help people with questions that do not involve illegal activities.

    Speaking of the new Yahoo
    I tried the new beta version for a while, but somehow could not find the boxes where you check to move the mail to my folders. Do any of you that use the beta know how I can move the read mail to the appropriate folders to keep them in? Thanks for your help in advance.
    I do like the 'preview' feature, but otherwise, it seems like a kickoff from what Telecom Europe has had for years so I opted to switch back to the one I had - and paid for yearly for only 19 bucks.

    Have a Happy Holiday! P.S. What's with the newly created link on the bottom when I include my smileys - I can delete them, but they get automatically put there for some reason.



    Again ScottGem - way to go!

    Theft of services is not that insignificant. Nor is the ethical and moral decay in this country that seems to think its OK to get things for free that should normally be paid for.

    There are a few sites out there, I'm using one myself, with stationary and smileys. Also, there are millions of sites with free fonts to download - If they don't work you can create your own with your favorite wordprocessor and use them with Yahoo - all you need to do is read the user's guides. Check out the features of office.org which is also free. You also have the option to look for another free email provider if Yahoo does not satisfy your creativity.
