Problem with Lycos Mail

I have a free Lycos Mail account that I created a long long time ago.

For the past couple of days, I'm having trouble logging into their webmail service. I go to mail.lycos.com, give my username/password, which seemingly are accepted, and then I'm redirected after several seconds to webmail.lycos.com which gives the error message "login failed". Further login attempts at webmail.lycos.com always give login failed.
If I now go to mail.lycos.com, I'm redirected (without me having to give any username,password) to webmail.lycos.com


If (after clearing all cookies) I give a wrong password at mail.lycos.com, there is no redirection, and I *immediately* get the message "username-password do not match".

I believe that it will log you in if you use the mail tab on the LYCOS home page.

Had the same issue a while back.

Good to know Lycos still exists. I remember them vaguely as a free webhost too, back before Wordpress.com, Wix.com and Weebly came into existance. I haven't seen anything Lycos related in ages.

Do they still accept new subscriptions for email? Are you satisfied with their service?

I believe LYCOS allows Paid only though maybe worth a try to sign up a free account.

They have a modified Roundcube webmail w./ calendar and a basic File Storage.
Have used it for a few online forums etc. No issues at all with it.

The ownership of LYCOS is now with an India based online advertising outfit,
Brightcom which appears to be highly profitable.

I think they still accept new free accounts, but only from certain countries.

I've still been unable to go to my mail account, and I'm not the only one:

(Look at their comments section)

It's been like 2 weeks, and no access.

Clicking the mail tab on the lycos page does not help.

Their email interface had improved from their early days.
