[OT] Yahoo Mail

Yahoo sent an e-mail saying that they are changing to a new e-mail system. Apparently they are discontinuing their standard e-mail system in about a month.

Where did they deliver this important notice? They placed their own e-mail in their automatic spam folder! I examined the headers. It appears to be from "noreply[put at-character here]".

Is there an easy way to directly move or copy more than ten year's of mail from a Yahoo mailbox to a gmail mailbox or some other alternative? It would also be nice to have it labeled as "transferred from Yahoo". I would prefer not to move it to my own machine even temporarily.

If you're talking about the upgrade of the webclient to a newer (better) version... what's so wrong with it that you suddenly want to move your entire mail over?

There was one feature in Gmail in "Accounts and Import" tab where you can transfer your non-Yahoo! Plus mail all over to Gmail through TrueSwitch. But I don't know what happened, they just quietly dropped this feature.
