I use Yahoo's web email but that's not a program. If you could provide a link to Yahoo's program, others may look it over but for many of us, Thunderbird is a better option.
There's more to my question than wondering how Yahoo's free email program stacks up against other free email programs. We're actually cancelling our AT&T service (home phone & internet), and no one seems to know what will happen to my current email address (and my saved mail, contacts, etc.) when we do that. Tech #1 claims that nothing will happen to my email address after cancelling the service. That it's just an email address and it should continue to be there for me. Tech #2 says, "Oh no," and recommends that I either use my new provider's email program or subscribe to a free email service. I think I'd prefer to go the free email route so that I never have to go through this again. Yahoo & AT&T seem to be affiliated, so I'm wondering if there's a way I could transfer my contacts and saved emails before the service is officially cancelled. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
