It seems that Yahoo Japan mistakenly has deleted some email… four and a half million email. “Yahoo Japan Corp. accidentally deleted about 4.5 million e-mails sent to 275,600 users due to a mistake in its e-mail service system, the company said.” It seems that Yahoo confused legitimate mail for spam.

So if something is important, ‘backup’, ‘backup’ and … ‘backup’.
