Lycos Mail Users, Move over to Yahoo Mail with Ease
I just had a look over at the Lycos mail site today, and it looks like they will be shutting down their service in the next few weeks. I know it’s never easy to change email addresses, but if you are a Lycos mail user, and are looking for a new mail provider, then we have a solution for you.
With one simple solution, you can bring all of your email and contacts from your existing Lycos account directly into a new or existing Yahoo! Mail account. Here’s all you need to do:
- If you haven’t already done so, sign up for a Yahoo! Mail account.
- Use our secure application to transfer over all of your Lycos email and contacts into your Yahoo! Mail account.
Yes!! It’s that easy. If you’re still unsure, watch this video and see that it’s just that easy. (Unfortunately, we’ve made some changes since we made the video, so calendar items are no longer an option)
And with our new email address options, getting the name you want is that much easier. During the sign up process, make sure to check out whether the email address you want is available @ymail.com or @rocketmail.com.
And last but not least, this isn’t just for Lycos users. You can transfer over all of your Hotmail, Gmail, AOL and many other email accounts into Yahoo! Mail.
