In late 2008 Yahoo announced a change in its retention policy

Customer Question

In late 2008 Yahoo announced a change in its retention policy for e-mail to a period of 90 days. However this policy was again changed. It now says that the 90 day policy does not apply to "raw data"; that 18 months would be the norm for that. I need to know when exactly this change went into effect. I also need to know if I am correct in reading that the 18 month rule is not retroactive. In other words does that new rule only apply to material dated after the commencement date for the new 18 month rule and dates going onward.

Please do not send me any references to Yahoo's Internet postings; I have read about forty of them and still do not have the dates I need. Just a brief answer to my question with the effective date is all I need.

Thank you.
