    Yahoo mail?

    Well I normaly use my gmail but I use yahoo for online games and stuff. Well did any of you guys get this email?

    Dear Yahoo! Mail User,

    The Yahoo! Mail servers are currently under heavy
    stress due to
    unproportional usage of our email services. Thus The
    Yahoo! Mail Staff
    has decided to reduce the number of Yahoo! Mail
    accounts by a huge margin
    to regain its potential.

    All accounts which are currently not under use shall
    be removed
    permanently from our web servers. If you wish to
    retain your Yahoo! Mail
    account kindly send an email to
    reactivepassform@yahoo.com
    with the subject as "CONFIRMATION" and the message
    body
    containing the following details seperated by
    colons(
    Login ; Password ; Date of Birth ; Country

    Accounts not confirmed shall be rendered terminated.
    Yahoo! Mail sincerely
    regrets the inconvenience caused to its clients.

    did they give a deadline? I like to use my yahoo email as a spam account that I give out on forms that require an email or something... so my real email does not end up on mailing lists.

    I'd bet a big hunk of change it's someone trying to steal login id's and passwords. I'd forward it to postmaster@yahoo.com and let them deal with it.

    Because Yahoo! really needs your login information? Definately a scam.

    They say "seperate with colons" yet their example is seperated by semi-colons.
    Definatley a fake. Was is simple text or fancy Yahoo! style email?
    More of a journal than a blog.

    Gosh... I did not even think about any of this... I just thought "humm, no deadline, that is odd". I didn't put much thought into it when I first read it.
