    An Email Question
    I'm a Newbie and am puzzled by this thought : I create an Email Account- say blablabla@yahoo.com... I received an Email which I opened. Is that opened Email now part of my Harddisk or is it stored in some mailbox in a server at Yahoo ? :confused: Thanks for any input.

    It stored in some mailbox in a server at Yahoo

    That is, if you go to mail.yahoo.com to look at your mail.

    There is an option to download your Yahoo Mail from their server to your own computer hard drive. Example, if you use a program like Microsoft Outlook.

    Ads?

    What adds in Yahoo?

    I guess since I have a pop up blocker I never notice.

    GMail... I wouldn't recommend that. I signed up for an account, every day I got 100+ emails in spam, and this is BEFORE I started giving out the address to my friends or using it in ANY way.

    I have both Yahoo and Gmail. I do see ads on Yahoo, but they are not intrusive, nor do they seem to have an appreciable affect on performance.

    Both Gmail and Yahoo have effective spam filters. I get very little spam on Gmail since I don't give that address out a lot.

    Hi, scroll,
    You have a good answer, previous to this one.
    Your Yahoo email address stores your email in their server, not in your computer.
    One suggestion I have:
    If you order anything from online, ALWAYS use a Yahoo email address, or Hotmail, etc. If you use your home computer's email, such as me@xxxx.net, for example, and have Outlook or Outlook Express for your home computer email, then you will be "swamped" with spam emails!
    It's much easier to go back to Yahoo after you order something, click on the Empty Bulk mail.
    Best wishes.
