Student communications disrupted by China Yahoo! Mail closure
Yahoo! officially shutdown its email service in China on August 19, giving users a week to save data and their contacts list before accounts are permanently deleted on August 26. Although the closure was announced in April, the move could potentially put a kink in communications with potential and current students from China for institutions caught off guard by the announcement. A note from Yahoo! China tells users with the e-mail address suffixes @yahoo.com.cn and @yahoo.cn that if they transfer their account to AliCloud they will continue receiving e-mails sent to their Yahoo address until Dec 31, 2014.
