Lycos Adds Extra Services
From The Search Engine Report
Nov. 5, 1997
Lycos had added free email and other services to its site, putting it firmly in the same direction of Excite and Yahoo into becoming an online destination.
E-mail services are web based and offered in conjunction with iName. Users can have a standard address, of the form "[email protected]" They can also pay $15 per year to have a specialty domain, such as [email protected]
Chat and bulletin board services have been introduced, and there is a new personal guide page. It can be customized to reflect personal preferences about news, weather, stocks and web reviews.
