You might recall that last December we launched a number of apps in Yahoo! Mail, including one called My Photos from Xoopit. Since that time, My Photos has been by far the most popular app in Yahoo! Mail and we’ve heard from many of you that you don’t know how you lived without it! With that in mind, we recently announced we are acquiring Xoopit, and are excited about integrating Xoopit’s platform technology into Yahoo! Mail for even better photo sharing and photo discovery.
Xoopit will bring to Yahoo! Mail the powerful indexing you need to make sense of the hundreds or thousands of photos contained in your unlimited storage inbox and enhanced photo sharing capabilities to get photos out to your friends, family and contacts.
We’ll provide more info about how photo sharing in Yahoo! Mail will improve in the coming months. In the meantime, if you want to try out Xoopit and the MyPhotos application click here: http://overview.mail.yahoo.com/applications to sign up.

The all-new version of Yahoo! Mail is full of time-saving features that make your life easier and more productive. Today I want to share a quick tip for adding new Contacts that I find very useful. Let’s say you receive an email from someone that’s not already in your list of Contacts, to add them to your Addressbook is easy. Here’s how…
There are actually two very easy ways to add new Contacts using any email message that is in your Mailbox. This first one is my preferred method. All you have to do is click the email message and drag it across over the ‘Contacts’ folder on the left side of your Mailbox.
An alternative way is to right-click on the email message and select ‘Add Sender to Contacts’ from the short-cut menu.
Which ever method you choose a new dialog box will pop open with the name and email address pre-populated with the information contained in the email. Just confirm that it’s correct and click ‘Save’. Now your new contact is added to your Addressbook.
It’s just that easy.
I want to give a quick heads up that we will be conducting maintenance over the next week that might impact some of you. The maintenance is part of our ongoing efforts to give you the best Mail service possible.
Beginning today, you may experience problems accessing your Yahoo! Mail account. If you are one of the very few affected, have no fear. It should be available again is as short as 30 minutes. Apologies for any inconvenience this causes you.
As always, please feel free to contact customer care for any concerns or issues. They can be reached via this link: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/forms_index.html
Thanks for your patience.
