Lycos ending free email service

Got this message yesterday (Sunday, April 8):

Dear Lycos Mail User,

Starting on May 15th, 2018 we will no longer be able to offer free Lycos Mail addresses.

To continue using your Lycos Mail address, you will need to upgrade your account to a premium account: https://registration.lycos.com/payme...m_PR=27&m_UP=1

There are three premium account options:
- $4.95 per month
- $19.95 per year
- $49.95 per 3 years

Upgrading your account to premium does come with benefits:
- 5 GB of storage space
- POP and IMAP access
- Webmail access without ads

Alternatively, if you do not want to upgrade your account, you can download your email messages with an email client. Instructions on how to do this are here:
https://help.opensrs.com/hc/en-us/ar...indows-10-Mail
Make sure to follow the instructions for Cluster B and to use the POP3 protocol.

If you do not upgrade your account, on May 15th, your Lycos Mail account and its messages will be deleted.

If you already have a premium account, no action is required.

We regret not being able to offer free Lycos Mail accounts going forward, but it is unfortunately necessary for us to stay in business.

See our FAQ for more information:

Thank you,
Lycos Mail Admin

I have a Lycos account, have not receive notification yet. I do expect one sooner or later though. Lost my Inbox.com account for the same reason. Not a real show stopper. Rarely use my account, everything is forwarded to an account I can use POP3 on and everything is not much. ;-)

Well I logged in to Lycos just now. That email is there, unread in my Inbox, apparently it was not forwarded to the specified email address. Oh well, as I mentioned before, not using it for much.
