Yahoo mail going the way of Photobucket? $$$

Started getting slide ons about ad blocking, disable blockers to view mail. OK, have to pay the bills I guess. I go and turn off anything that looks like a blocker, still get the message. So I click on view with ads and the next page works, then I get the message again, and again. I click on view without ads to see what's going on and see they are wanting to charge about $4 a month for mail service. Hate to do without Yahoo mail as our IPS companies come and go around here and it's nice to have a long term mail service. (Firefox browser)

My wife and I use both Yahoo and gmail. We hate the ads and the invasion of privacy, but having the long term mail service is convenient so I guess that's the price we pay. Plus, we never know when we're going to tell our cable provider to shove it, lol.

If you use POP mail and a mail client like Eudora, Thunderbird or the Mac mail client, then you don't have to worry about ads. I started my Yahoo email back in the early 1990's! I never use it. The last time I checked, it was jam packed with junk email.

Yahoo was compromised in 2016, you should only be using it for all your junk mail's not what it use to be.
