Yahoo accepting requests for inactive email IDs
Yahoo is allowing people to place claims on inactive email addresses that are being given a second life.
Yahoo Inc. says a substantial number of old email IDs are being made available, but isn't providing specifics.
The email IDs are being released a month after the Sunnyvale, Calif., company notified users that they would have 30 days to log into an inactive account if they wanted to keep it.
People awarded the rights to the recycled email addresses will have a 48-hour period to activate the accounts beginning Aug. 15.
