To those of you who have been using our Yahoo! Mail Beta product: thank you. Your feedback on the Suggestions Board and on this blog has kept us busy fixing, building, and improving the experience. Thanks to your participation, we are launching a new batch of features that will go live this week for Yahoo! Mail Beta users around the world. Here is what you will see:
Color me excited!
Themes, themes, themes. We heard you loud and clear: you miss our colorful, fun themes! Our team buckled down in December to build and release a gallery of themes for you to choose from. Go to the Help drop-down menu at the top left of the page, select Themes and check out our gallery. What is your favorite theme color? My favorite is the dark pink, but I’m girlie like that :)
They’re baaaaack: Calendar and Notepad return
You love our Calendar and Notepad products and we’re glad you do. With this release, we are giving you easily accessible links to both Calendar and Notepad in the Applications section on the bottom left corner. Stay tuned as we integrate products like Calendar and Notepad more deeply into Mail.
Now you can upload multiple attachments at once. Just hold down your Ctrl, Shift or Command key and select all the files you want to attach.
More room for social
Finally, we have moved all your Updates to their own tab. This way, when you want to get your Yahoo!, Facebook and Twitter fix, you can go to the Updates tab and browse without interruption! I also like that my News is back in view on the What’s New tab.
We are continuing to update and improve the Yahoo! Mail Beta, so please keep using it and giving us feedback!
