If you’ve ever wanted a place to go to get a quick snapshot of everything about Yahoo! Mail, I have some splendid news for you. We have just rolled out an all new Product Overview site (overview.mail.yahoo.com) that should (in theory) contain anything and everything you wanted to know about the features and functions of Yahoo! Mail, but didn’t know where to ask. Here comes the preview, but make sure you read to the end for some additional news about the blog.
As you can see there is an easy to follow navigation bar at the top of every page. You can drill down within the Products tab to get detailed information about Classic or All-New Mail, and if you’ve ever wanted to know the differences, there is an option for that too. You get side by side feature comparison of both versions, with some details about Plus features too.
Each main product page also has tab choices that let you see not only the current features, but also a summary list of all of the most recent changes.
But maybe you don’t want just a summary list of the changes. If that’s the case you needn’t fret because there is another option in the main navigation bar that lets you review detailed descriptions of What’s New with Yahoo! Mail.
Maybe you want to know more about integrated chat or SMS within the All-New Mail. Perhaps you were living under a rock and never heard that we offer unlimited storage for all users. No matter your flavor, you can find the latest major product breakdowns under that tab.
Under the enhancements tab you can find a very detailed description of all of the features of Yahoo! Mail Plus, accompanied by one of my favorite Liam incarnations…Super Liam!
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the coolest aspect of the overview site…the giant link to this blog! Sure you are already here now, but I’m all for anything that makes it easier for you to get back, as well as anything that could bring some new readers.
If you happen to be someone who found your way here for the first time thanks to that link, please do subscribe to the RSS feed and come back again. Here you will find breaking news about both versions of Yahoo! Mail, product demos, screencasts, and news about bugs that may be impacting your Mail experience, all with a healthy dose of lighthearted humor (except on the bug posts, of course).
There’s lots of stuff to check out on the Overview site, so please have a look around. Also, I want to let you all know (or at least the folks who read all the way to the end of my posts) that I’m going to be out of the office for the next week, so be patient if you don’t see any comment responses from me for a few days.
I’ve queued up some great posts with the pics users submitted of the places they use Yahoo! Mail, and they will be going up while I’m gone. Enjoy, and I’ll be back soon!
