Yahoo! Mail Beta Starts

Category: Email

<p>Yahoo! Mail is finally about to start a beta with some of its users. The new version is the fruit of the Oddpost acquisition, and it has a very clean look to it.

Yahoo imported most of the changes from Oddpost, an e-mail startup the company bought for an undisclosed amount last year.

With its changes, Yahoo’s e-mail will look more like a traditional inbox that operates through a software program installed on a computer hard drive instead of being hosted on the Internet. Yet Yahoo’s redesigned service still relies on a Web browser and won’t require its users to install anything on their computers.

Using “dynamic” html, Yahoo’s e-mail accounts will feature an inbox containing all e-mails on the top of the page with a separate pane for reading e-mail below it. The feature is meant to enable users to scroll through an e-mail folder without having to click back and forth between Web pages.

Yahoo’s test audience also will use a computer mouse to “drag and drop” e-mails from one folder to another and search all the content, including attachments, stored in the inbox.

“Our competition has been doing some interesting things in e-mail, but we think we have leapfrogged them all with all these new features,” said Ethan Diamond, an Oddpost co-founder who works for Yahoo as a director of product management.

Zilla Smash got to check out the app and discusses their opinions

This like good advice from Yahoo Mail, but need some attention.. this chat enable is not good work on DIAL UP connection, this like some weakness of the speed.

If I was compare the GMail that have chat too, the GMail is more good and speed and chat interface, I just hope Yahoo Mail have better on speed and chat interfaces.

But after all, this good add on ;)

I like it but the tab functionality could be more better. On the other hand, the drag and drop function to place messages into folders for better organization is a very nice feature.

For this moment i will just stick with gmail!

Comment by IndepthInternetMarketing — March 6, 2008

I rather stick myself with the old version. The beta version dosn’t work so good. It take long time to load via AJAX, and it’s not flexible enough to work with. The classic version is much better though…

Comment by InternetMarketing — March 8, 2008

I re-visited using the new Yahoo email – they’ve worked a lot of the bugs out and it does work much better.

Comment by HealthProductReports — November 10, 2008

I like yahoo because it has so much features.

Comment by indianews — February 2, 2010

A giant step forward from the old version.
Practicly you don’t need anything else..
“The classic version is much better though…”???

I`ve been using Yahoo email for some time now, and I cant take it anymore. Their ads are SO annoying, it`s nothing like Hotmail or Gmail. Gmail is by far the best, and a feature I like about G is that it updates automatically. No need to press push the update-button, new emails just arrives in your inbox. Nice.

Nice look and interface. Looks like its way better than the “All-new mail”. Can anyone tell me when will this come out?
