    Running away from Yahoo without ties (more direct question)


    I do not have thorough modern talent with todays email applications.

    Are there any high quality email applications where I can use my current ****@sbcglobal.net address without the new email application being tied back to Yahoo. I want to cut the Yahoo email cord but the necessity to change email addresses after decades is dearly a unsurmountable undertaking for me and my wife. I would want a permanent high quality email application.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Using a dial-up connection to access Yahoo Mail VPN

    I currently have an AT&T Tilt running WM6.



    I'd like to be able to access my Yahoo Mail while away from my home without having to utilize Media Net, my thoughts would be to trade airtime for data cost. I would like to use dial-up networking to direct dial into my Yahoo account. I have created a
    new "My ISP" connection using the "Connections" dialog and inputted the dialup phone number, userid and password, but did not specify a domain. I am unable to get a connection.



    Two questions then...



    1) What am I doing wrong to cause the connection to fail?



    AND



    2) Is my assumption that because I'm am using a network that allows unlimited data traffic, my data transfer costs will be less correct?

  4. Running away from Yahoo without ties (more direct question)

    Hi:

    Good question. It's complicated.

    You can use any email client (Outlook, TB, eM client, Mailbird, or others) with your @sbcglobal.net ISP email account, or with any webmail account.

    The problem is that it is sbcglobal/AT&T that has the relationship/linkage to yahoo.
    See here:

    My Yahoo Account Was Hacked! Now What?

    Even if you close your yahoo account (which you should do), your @sbcglobal.net account is still indirectly tied to yahoo.
    There's nothing that an email client itself can do to fix that.
    An email client is just a locally installed program on your computer that allows you to read/write/store email messages; you can have multiple email accounts configured within the program (for example, on my main desktop PC, I have 2 ISP accounts and 1 gmail account). IOW, the email client is just the middle man between your ISP mail account and your computer.
    So the "yahoo tie" has nothing to do with your choice of email client.
    Rather it's related to your @sbcglobal.net ISP email account.

    The only way to get totally away from yahoo would be to switch to a different ISP that does not have ties to yahoo.
    You could keep your ISP and just close all your @sbcglobal.net email accounts and switch to gmail. But I think your ISP (@sbcglobal) service will still be indirectly tied to yahoo.
    If you change your ISP and/or change to gmail, it would mean you would have a new, different email address (or addresses). Most ISP mail services and webmail services (such as gmail) provide tools to help you switch (such as notifying all of your contacts, etc.). It's a bit of a pain. But it's manageable.
    No matter what you end up doing, you can still use your old or new email or webmail accounts with your chosen email client.

    From a security standpoint, it's probably a good idea to get away from anything yahoo.

    HTH,

    MM

    Thank you. Your thorough explanation provides me with a clearer understanding of the situation. I am considering Chrome so I will research how they tie back to Yahoo.

    Good evening,

  6. Hi:

    You are most welcome.*Smile

    Chrome is a web browser, like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera and others.
    A web browser is a software application used to access information on the World Wide Web.
    It has nothing to do with email or webmail (or Yahoo), per se.

    The only direct relationship between a web browser and email comes when you access either your ISP email account and/or your webmail account (such as yahoo mail or gmail) from your web browser.
    If you have an email client installed, then you can also access your emails through that email client.

    So, when you have email accounts (ISP or webmail or Exchange, etc.), you can access those accounts at least two ways:
    • Via your email client program installed on your computer; and/or
    • Via your web browser to access the email service's web page

    Cheers,
    MM
