Word of warning about SBC Yahoo!

I've had my Yahoo! Mail account since the very early days of Yahoo! Mail, and have used my account as my primary personal e-mail address. While I have had 6 different school/work addresses the last 7 years, my Yahoo! account has stayed constant. That is until SBC came along. The last 2 years I had a DSL line through SBC, who teamed up with Yahoo! to deliver their enhanced DSL services. Though the DSL performance was pretty crappy at times, the Yahoo! enhanced services were great - additional storage for mailboxes and briefcases. I then moved out of SBC's area and time came to disassociate (or unmerge) my SBC and Yahoo! accounts. BEEEEEEP
Please be informed that after migrating to SBC Yahoo!, you can not unmerge your SBCGlobal and Yahoo! accounts but if you still want to unmerge your accounts, the only possibility is that you have to cancel your SBC Yahoo! service in the future, there will be a maintenance fee of $9.95 per month to retain your existing Yahoo! ID and preserve your mail, addresses, calendar items and personalized services. If you cancel your SBC Yahoo! service and do not wish to pay the maintenance fee, your data will be deleted, or you can transfer some of your existing data to a new Yahoo! account with a different user ID.
We apologize for this inconvenience. However, after deactivation of your existing Dial-up account, your Yahoo! ID will be free after 180 days from the date of deactivation. It is free and any member can create using that member ID.
