Free Lycos Emails RIP.
« on: January 18, 2009, 11:52:54 PM »

I have a good number of Free email accounts with Lycos, But they seem to have been taken over and are stopping this free service  :(.
 
So if you use them you will have to sort them out by Feb 15th,
I use most of mine for Forums but cannot think of all the places I have used them.  :'(

Sounds like they are doing the same as Supanet did a few weeks ago, and that is to get rid of addresses that are either not being actively used (or not paid for)

Looking at this it may be something to do with this :  http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php?topic=4026.0 
With all the storage needed for this, some one has to pay for it.
