Lycos Mail is shutting down
After several years of providing high quality email services to its users, Lycos is finally putting an end to its Lycos Mail operations. The Lycos Team forwarded the bad news to its loyal subscribers by sending copies of the company’s official statement to their individual email addresses.
Not saving important documents
Until the cut-off date, all Lycos Mail users may still log-on to their email accounts. They may still send messages, receive emails, organize files, store documents, and manage contacts using their Lycos Mail accounts. However, the company advises all existing Lycos Mail users to start cleaning up their inboxes by backing up their important files. According to the Lycos Team, the company will close all Lycos Mail accounts on the cut-off date. The contents of all Lycos Mail accounts, therefore, will be deleted as soon as the email accounts are closed.
Not forgetting paid accounts
Like most email service providers, Lycos Mail also offers additional paid options. If you are a paid subscriber of Lycos Mail, then you should not worry about your remaining balance because the Lycos Team promises to reimburse all remaining balances. All reimbursements will be sent to the bank account that you specified during your application.
Not attracting enough users
According to the official statement issued by the Lycos Team via email, the company has decided to discontinue its Lycos Mail operations because it’s no longer profitable. In recent years, Lycos Mail suffered heavy competition against more popularly known webmail services such as Gmail and Yahoo! Mail.
Lycos Mail will finally close its doors on February 15.
