Relevance, like beauty, truly is in the mind of the beholder.
Yahoo wants all users to have the email address of their dream. So, the high-tech giant is inviting people to submit their most wanted email address on to its wish-list website to see if it is available.
Last month Yahoo announced that all email addresses that have been dormant for more than a year would be shut down and offered to new users. So, if there is an email address that is a must-have, go to the company’s wish-list site, enter it, and, if available, the dream username will be issued on a first-come, first served basis.
The company will inform people seeking their special username by mid-August if it is available. If so, the requestor will have a 48-hour window to claim it. (Yahoo!)
"If your first choice isn't available, we'll try one of your backups," Yahoo's Dylan Casey wrote in a Tumblr post about the new site. In mid-August the company will inform those who have requested new usernames if they have gotten their top picks and they will have 48 hours to claim the new address.
