Clarification about Yahoo Groups

Dear Yahoo Group Moderators and Members,

We recently announced that (Yahoo Groups) and its list service will shut down on December 15, 2020. We would like to clarify that there will be no changes to other Yahoo properties or services. For example, your Yahoo account will not change and there are no changes to Yahoo Mail.

The only change on December 15, 2020 is that you will no longer be able to visit the Yahoo Groups website at or use its mailing list features.

We’ve updated our comprehensive FAQ here.

Thank you to everyone who reached out with questions or comments.

The Yahoo Groups team
