Dotrush 2006 – Hurry, whatever.youwant@yahoo.com going fast.

Over the last few weeks, Yahoo! Mail has started offering a “dot” within your Yahoo ID. Instead of nate98317ab, you can now be firstname.lastname, or anything else containing a dot. I was triz_n, but now I’m nate.koechley. This new namespace offers many great names that have been grabbed long ago in the dot-less namespace. Here’s what the Yahoo Mail blog has to say about it:

Well, you’re in luck. 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. But hurry, the good names are going fast!
