Yahoo! to Shut Down Its Mail Service in China on August 19, 2013
Frankly speaking, it’s a bit sudden. Who may have thought that Yahoo China, the old email service would leave the Chinese market by this way? Anyway, what we can do now is move our mails in accordance with the methods provided by the figure below before August 19, 2013.
Clearly, from the notification the relocation recommended mail service given by the official China Yahoo is their closely related Ali cloud. (Behind Yahoo is Alibaba.com). Of course, if people have other methods, they may turn to the POP service to complete the movement. In short, no matter which method users will choose, it’s better to get used to their “new home” as soon as possible.
“Today (April 18), China Yahoo Mail officially launched the overall migration and stop the service on August 19, 2013, and thereafter all the user’s messages and related account settings will be deleted and cannot be restored.
