Get your new ‘dot’ addresses at Yahoo! Mail

Yahoo!’s attempts to go one up on Google continue to pick up steam.

Their latest update is allowing users to register a new “dot” address (e.g. something.something@yahoo.com) as an alias to existing e-mail addresses.


We’ve just opened up new “dot” addresses to all Mail users. Now get an extra email address like stunt.racer@yahoo.com or poetry.stud@yahoo.com or whatever.youwant@yahoo.com. It’s absolutely free. Use it just as you would your primary address (which of course you can still use). To make things handy, even use one Inbox to send and receive messages to and from both addresses.

So if your name was John Smith, and you were disappointed that you couldn’t sign up as john_smith@yahoo.com ‘cos, dammit, apparently there were more than one John Smith out there, and so you were stuck with hensem_lengchai@yahoo.com, well, fret not! Now’s your chance to register john.smith@yahoo.com and use it as an alias for your exisiting e-mail addy! Cool eh?

But hurry! The good names are going fast!

Go go go!

  1. huh? Google has already had that function for some time…

    Sashi: Yes. I know that. I’m just highlighting the fact that now Yahoo has them – as an alias too. You don’t have that alias thing with Gmail.. yet.
