Four years ago today, Lycos formally announced an online relationship with E-Loan.

The deal called for E-Loan to become Lycos' loan merchant within Lycos? real estate Web guide and be accessible through a loans link on Lycos' main Web page.

E-Loan at the time said it would supply Lycos instant access to loan information, interest rates, mortgage comparisons and other information about applying for a first or second mortgage.

Lycos had recently announced e-commerce, advertising and sponsorship agreements totaling more than $30 million in fees with E-Loan and several other companies.
