Did you know that Yahoo email lets you block entire email domains? What is a block when it comes to domains? It means that no email from that domain will be able to get through to you, period. Not to even your spam folder, let alone your inbox. Don’t want to hear from that politician who put you on their mailing list and from which you have tried to unsubscribe a dozen or more times? Block their domain! Sure that you unsubscribed from that company’s emails and yet they keep emailing you, and from different email addresses? Block their domain and never hear from them again! As Yahoo explains it, “Once you block a domain you will also be unsubscribed from the brand.”

Verizon and Yahoo have been sleeping with each other in one way or another since at least 2005 (when the domain verizon.yahoo.com was launched), but now Verizon is finally going to make an honest woman of Yahoo. Yesterday it was announced that Verizon has acquired Yahoo for $4.83 billion. Now we just need to agree on what the Hollywood-style name for the new couple should be – should it be Veriz-hoo or Yahoozon?
As we reported earlier today, Verizon has acquired Yahoo for nearly 5 billion dollars. You can read more about that here. However here, below, is the full text of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s email letter to Yahoo employees announcing the acquisition.
Coincident with the Reset the Net effort, in which they are taking part, Google and Yahoo, along with Microsoft and Facebook, and others, are moving at speed to block the NSA’s snooping, and to tighten up their systems to make it more difficult for the NSA, and others, to eavesdrop on their data.
Last week Yahoo quietly let slip that Yahoo is no longer honoring your “Do Not Track” request when you are on a Yahoo website. They announced this on their “Global Public Policy blog” which is on Tumblr, not even on a Yahoo property.
Now that Yahoo and AOL are both stating through the DMARC p=reject that any email coming from a yahoo or aol address that isn’t sent from a yahoo or aol server should be rejected (bounced), problems are cropping up for Hotmail, Outlook, Live.com and MSN users, who are finding their own email addresses being removed from mailing lists for no apparent reason. But there is a reason.
AOL has just announced that they are following Yahoo’s suit in telling the email-receiving world to reject (bounce) any email that has an aol.com “from” address, but doesn’t actually come through an AOL mail server, using the now infamous “p=reject” DMARC policy.
If you use a Yahoo email address, or are on a Yahoo mailing list, then you may already know that recently Yahoo essentially broke countless mailing lists, and generally made a lot of email broken, as any email with a “from Yahoo” address that wasn’t sent through a Yahoo mail server was rejected.
Project Optic Nerve: British Spooks Looking at Your Yahoo Webcam Chats Surprised to Find So Much T and A
It turns out that the U.S.’ NSA is not the only intelligence agency conducting privacy-invading surveillance on average citizens. The UK’s GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) has been quietly collecting data – including revealing screenshots of breasts and other body parts – from Yahoo webcam chats – under an effort called Project Optic Nerve.
In a move that has concerned as many as it has surprised, Yahoo has announced that come July 15th they will be recycling email addresses, meaning that previously dead, inactive or dormant email addresses will be up for grabs.
