    Evidently there is a distinction to be made between the.....
    Yahoo Mail App, which IF I'm reading @davehc 's link correctly, is what is ending
    As opposed to "THE" Windows 10 Mail App, native to the Windows 10 Operating System, which is not ending.
    At least that is how I interpret the information available.

    Apparently "Yahoo" has decided that they will no longer maintain, support or make available their "Mail App"

    That is legitimate.

    Here in NZ our ISPs cancelled the APP usage in January and also stopped using Yahoo servers for emails.

    This was because of the failure of Yahoo to inform users of the massive hack they suffered when it first occurred, which resulted on 1 million + NZ accounts being compromised.

    I imagine the same concerns are occurring in other countries and that has led Yahoo to be forced to pull the app until they can assure users their security is improved.
