Two New E-mail Domains from Yahoo! After 11 Years – ymail.com and rocketmail.com are waiting for millions of email users – Softpedia: “Two New E-mail Domains from Yahoo! After 11 Years
– ymail.com and rocketmail.com are waiting for millions of email users”
Yahoo!Mail is a popular free email service that exists since October 1997. For the first time in eleven years, Yahoo! Inc. makes available two new email domain names: ymail.com and rocketmail.com.
Due to the fact that there are already more that 260 million email users corresponding to the domain yahoo.com, certain Yahoo! IDs or email addresses are not available for the new users. Until now, Yahoo! users had to define and remember login IDs like john_doe2008 for example, a situation undesired by the majority of users.
As a consequence of the apparition of these two new email domains, when a user creates a new Yahoo! Account, he/she will have the pleasant surprise of finding out that he/she can define the desired Yahoo! ID, because millions of names are still available.
Regarding the release of the two new email domains John Kremer, vice president, Yahoo! Mail stated, “We recognize that people want an e-mail address that reflects who they are, whether they are signing up for an e-mail address for the first time, or simply updating their e-mail pseudonym to reflect the stage they are at in life. We are thrilled to be able to offer new Yahoo! e-mail domain choices to Internet users, along with the same great Web mail experience that hundreds of millions of people have already come to expect.”
The email addresses defined for ymail.com and rocketmail.com domains will provide users with the features already existing in the case of yahoo.com emails such as unlimited storage, instant messaging and text messaging, anti-spam and anti-virus protection and more. The corresponding Yahoo! ID can be used to login to all free web based services available across the Yahoo! Network. For the new users, the sign up form to get the free Yahoo! ID and an email box can be accessed from here.
