Will logging in once/month keep hotmail/Yahoo email account current?

    Hi,

    I'm having a problem with the emails -that are associated with my facebook accounts- getting canceled.

    Basically, I don't log into the email accounts and they get a lot of inbox messages from facebook so I assume that is the problem.

    If I log into the email accounts 1x per month, is that enough for Yahoo and hotmail to keep the email accounts going? Or do I need to also show "real activity" and make/send emails out from the accounts.

    Thanks

    Pretty much, just make sure you log in within the set time, perhaps send an email to another one of your accounts

    Any idea if logging in is enough? With 100's of emails, it's a pain to send out emails.

    Suggestion that I do:

    It's a real pain to setup, but I use outlook/thunderbird and add all the email addresses to it, there is an auto setup thing for outlook I know of, just can't remember how to do it...(something to do with adding automatically to registry, Google should know...) anyways...then 1st of each month I send an email to my "mailing list" from a seperate email address, then let outlook/thunderbiird run and will automatically login and download your emails.

    Hope this idea is helpful

    welshman,

    Thanks for the tip. About how long have you been doing this and with how many email addresses?

    What I am afraid is if Yahoo detects a ton of activity at 1 time on 1 IP and blocks the emails. The way outlook downloads emails via POP3... does anybody know if that is like a "normal login" where you can get tracking cookies?
