    Since our move we had to switch to AT&T for our DSL and they use Yahoo as their email server. I think part of the reason for the new Yahoo front end was due to the security breach they experienced last year. I have switched to the new front end and there have been no problems. I also use MS Office Outlook on my main computer and Thunderbird on a computer I use for travel to retrieve the Pop mail from Yahoo and have not noticed any speed problems.
    Some days it hardly seems worth the effort to gnaw through the restraints!

Is that your situation as well?
    I live in Maryland. My cable TV company is Comcast. Don't know of any changes happening there.

    Comcast has email you might want to consider using; I haven't had any notification of the end of email, in fact they just did some sort of upgrade (I didnt pay attention to the details, since I generally use my Gmail account.) The Comcast storage isn't as good as AOL - I have AOL emails that are in the 10 year old range (I know that seems odd, but when I update my SF86 I've kept contact emails in there because I'm too lazy to transfer them somewhere else, probably because I know they're in my AOL email in a folder)
    Chaos breathes life into routine.

    When using webmail you will use the AOL page, which is a lot better than Verizon and now I can access my Verizon email on my phone easier with the AOL app. I thought it was going to be a pain too and annoy me too, but it turns out to be a non issue/win.
    I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird, which is apparently no longer owned by Mozilla. Outlook 2013 suuuucks, and TBird is an acceptable replacement.

    Well I took the move to AOL option and it has been pretty painless so far.

    I have not seen this notice from Verizon. Our internet service is through Verizon (DSL).
    AT&T already busted my triple play discount, if they drop email I may be forced to make the change to <gag> Metrocrap.
    If I have to go through the pain of transferring to a new email address, I might as well drop my land line and go with the cable internet.

    Find another email provider, and letting everybody know what your new email address is.

    Verizon e-mail notice:

    Over the next several weeks we will be preparing to leave the email business. Effective May 13, 2017, we'll no longer provide email service for your account. Other than this change, your Verizon service(s) won't be affected.

    We have two options for you to consider. Please review both options and take action today to avoid losing access to your email.

    Choosing an option is easy.
    1.Click here to sign into your email account.
    2.Simply select Keep email address or Use any other email provider to complete the setup.

    Option 1. Keep your current email address with AOL Mail.

    By choosing this option you will:
    •Keep your email address
    •Migrate to AOL Mail
    •Retain email, contacts and calendar(s) automatically

    Option 2. Use any other email provider.

    By choosing this option, you will:
    •No longer be able to use your current email address
    •Establish an account with a mail provider of your choosing like or Gmail
    •Manually move your email, contacts and calendar(s)

    To confirm this message is valid, visit and select Announcements under the Tools section at the bottom of the page.

    Have questions? More information can be found at

    Take action by May 13, 2017 or you'll lose access to your
    email account.

    Don't wait; act now.

    Same here. I read the note SoftTouch copied as "your account", not all Verizon accounts. Sounds like a phased approach.
