    yahoo mail

    Starting Thursday, Yahoo will allow its customers to create e-mail accounts using the ymail and rocketmail domain names. With 266 million active users, itís pretty tough for newbies to get the personalized Yahoo! Mail account name of their choice. Yahoo just made it easier, however, by adding the possibility of using the ymail and rocketmail domain names. Longtime Internet denizens will recognize the latter as the original e-mail domain used by the company Four11, which Yahoo acquired in 1997. And ymail will be familiar to users of the companyís mobile service, Yahoo! Mobile, as thatís what appears on the login screen.

    Accounts created with the new domain names will use the same Yahoo! Mail interfaces and get unlimited storage at no charge. Localized country versions of the domain will also be available. The IDís will also work for signing in to other Yahoo sites and services, such as Flickr, and Yahoo! Messenger. As part of the launch, Yahoo will auction off special e-mail addresses, the proceeds of which will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Ocean Conservancy, The Point Foundation, Right to Play and World Wildlife Fund. The auction will run from today until June 30, and can be found at ebay.com/ymail.
