I have my Yahoo! Mail back :-)

Some good news, and I am officially happy at the moment. My Yahoo Mail account has been reactivated.

The reason why it has been such a hassle to do is because my Yahoo email address is actually a Rocketmail email address, and this can not normally be reactivated after long periods of not being used. I have moaned about this problem before and it is something that has been niggling me for years.

I would love to tell you how to recover your Rocketmail account if you have one, but I am not really certain why it was done this time. The customer care were able to “reactivate it on an exceptional basis” so I guess it is not a change in policy, just that I was lucky.

Update: I can not receive email yet, but it is sending fine and I presume it will just take a while for everything to sync up.

Update 2: Over a week later with many emails to support and it is still not working. :-( I guess I will never have Yahoo! Mail again, but at least I can play with the API now.

Update 3: Two months later and still not working, but lost of emails saying that they are still working on it.

Update 4: Over 4 months and guess what, still not working. :-(

i love Quidco GreenWhite
