Your Business Mail plan includes a certain number of mailboxes, repositories into which
email messages can be delivered. Each of those mailboxes is allotted 2GB of storage space
on our dedicated Business Email servers (this means they can each hold email messages
whose combined size adds up to 2GB). When you set up your email service, you will be able
to create personalized email addresses; these addresses represent delivery routes to and
from your mailboxes. You can use these email addresses and mailboxes yourself or assign
them to friends or colleagues.
Your Business Mail mailboxes are distinct from your free Yahoo! Mail account. With the
Business Mail service, you will be able to send and receive email using both your free
Yahoo! email address (such as firstname.lastname@example.org) and your personalized email addresses
(email@example.com). You ll be able to receive messages in both your free mailbox and
your Business Mail mailbox(es). You can access both through Yahoo! s Webmail interface or
with your own software via POP mail.
Personal Address works somewhat differently. Like Business Mail, Personal Address allows
you to create personalized email addresses; however, instead of pointing to a mailbox on
our Business Email servers, these email addresses are associated with a free Yahoo!
mailbox. You and anyone to whom you assign an email address will be able to send and
receive email using both your free Yahoo! email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and your
personalized email address (such as email@example.com), and you will retrieve all of
your messages by signing in to your free Yahoo! Mail account or using POP mail to download
them with your own email client. Personal Address does not include any extra storage space
for your free Yahoo! mailbox, but because each address is associated with a unique mailbox
(and Yahoo! ID), your total email storage space can grow tenfold when you set up your
service (10 email addresses at 250MB each equals more than 2GB!).
If you currently use Personal Address but would like to take advantage of Business Mail s
larger storage space, mailboxes, and other features, don t worry you can upgrade
anytime. Learn more in our online help center at
