Yahoo Wishlist – Get Your Desired Username
Yahoo Wishlist – One latest news coming out of the kitty of Yahoo is its brand new initiative about freezing across accounts, which have been inactive for over a year now. This particular activity which has now become the talk of the town has been fondly named as the Yahoo Wishlist. The idea behind this initiative is to allow the current as well as new Yahoo users to get their hands on a username of their choice. Yahoo is planning to achieve the same by “giving away the freezed Email Ids”.
Make you Yahoo wish list by 7th August 2013 and get the email username that you always wanted!
We also get to hear about a certain association between Yahoo and Facebook, which particularly states that every time when you visit your Facebook Login Page in order to reset your password a brand new header would go ahead and remind Yahoo to check the age of your account before delivering any kind of mail to you. The header that we are talking about here is the Require-Recipient-Valid-Since header. Furthermore, if this header happens to flash Facebook’s last confirmed date, which if happens to be less than the date on which your new Yahoo ownership has initiated, then the mail will then bounce back to Facebook.
So what are you waiting for? Haven’t prepared your Yahoo Wishlist till now? Go ahead addup your favorite usernames in your Yahoo Wishlist! 🙂
