RocketMail was one of the first major free webmail services launched in 1996 by Four11 Corporation. Back in the days, Four11 Corporation battled for the number one spot among free webmail services where Hotmail was its main competitor. Later in 1997, RocketMail was acquired by Yahoo! for $92 Million. In the time of the transaction, new users on RocketMail could either register a Yahoo ID or a RocketMail ID. The RocketMail users were able to keep and receive the same service as Yahoo users. Later in April of 2013, Yahoo mail closed the support of creating a new RocketMail address. Therefore, you cannot create a RocketMail account now. Although making a new RocketMail email account was discontinued, existing RocketMail users were not affected. The RocketMail users are still able to access their unique RocketMail address with Yahoo Mail.
