I have a Firewall product (OP FW Pro) that allows me to *** fill sensitive private data so I put in my postal code/ zip in US. What Yahoo Mail does each time I log in to the web based service for email is it trys multiple times to upload my postal code. Each time it is blocked and *** filled. I can still read mail and send mail so they are NOT cutting service due to their failure! When I use Outlook or Windows Live Mail from my own PC no such uploading attempt occurs as no messages from the FW happen. This is a puzzle, but the big privacy question is why do they do it, when there are no consequences. I'm now wondering what else they get that I haven't blocked?
