I never used my ProZ email, but I did create an account a long time ago just because. Today I tried to log into the account via the link accessed through the drop down menu at the top of the ProZ page and got this:

ALERT: TERMINATION OF FREE WEB MAIL SERVICE

You can continue using the email service by subscribing to Mail Plus Total Protection. The benefits of Mail Plus Total Protection include:

I suppose I must have missed the memo at some point so my question is, is it official that ProZ no longer provides web mail, and if so, should the link continue to appear in the drop down menu?

Not sure when that went into effect, but it looks like it should be removed from the dropdown Jul 12

Hello Lincoln,

I'm not sure when Everyone.net (the third party provider of the free web mail) did that. If they are no longer offering free web mail then yes, it would make sense to remove it from the drop down menu. Thanks for reporting.

Jared

Apparently announced in January of this year, went into effect in March Jul 13

Just an update. Looking around, it appears that Everyone.net announced this change in January of this year via email to account holders. This was the announcement I found:
