    Yahoo Mail - features unavailable in Europe

    This is new. Just appeared today....

    Just a cryptic note that "some features are temporarily unavailable" in Europe, but with no explanation of what features they may be. Anyone know?

    Apparently a similar note (and similarly uninformative) appeared in Facebook last December.

    This may go some way to explaining it....
