I'm migrating away from my Yahoo! Mail account in favor of my own email@example.com. I do this for various reasons but primarily because of my distaste for yahoo's web ui and due to a Fedora/Yahoo! mail problem which I've only recently found out about.
I did sign up for a couple years of Yahoo! Mail plus to forward all my movitto@yahoo traffic to my new address, which I will be using immediately as the replacement. I know it may seem strange to pay for the service at this point, but I'm paying it for the time being to migrate _away_ from their mail service, eventually I mean to not use it at all.
So don't be surprised if you receive mail from firstname.lastname@example.org and I ask that people start sending mail there instead of my yahoo address. Thanks.
