Yahoo E-mail - IP Address

Postby John-K » Mon Jan 17, 2005 3:39 pm

I was about to sign up for the free Yahoo e-mail service -- can't beat 250 MB! -- so I went aheand and read the Privacy Policy. It said that it logs my IP Address. 8O Is there a way I can prevent this logging event from happening?

Every site logs IP's when under a secure connection.
In fact every site you connect to knows your IP address, that way they know where to upload the data to after a request from your browser.

Its harmless.

You can beat 250mb. Google offers 1000MB of free space. If you want a google account I can send you an invite.
