Over the next several weeks, the RSS Feeds Reader (integrated into the sidebar of the All-New Mail) will begin to ease off into the sunset. Overall usage of the feature was very low, and we’ve made the choice to focus our development resources on features and functionality that are valuable to the most users.
All of your feeds are safe, and can all be found over at MyYahoo! There you can continue to access all of your favorite feeds, along with a host of other useful tools and modules (personally I couldn’t live without my Fantasy Sports, EW.com, and Personal Assistant modules).
A very limited number of preview servers have already begun the transition, while other servers will start to see the change over the next few weeks. Initially the Feeds link will remain in your sidebar, and will provide the following message:
We’ve learned that some users may have encountered errors while attempting to access their Feeds over the last day or so, but those are completely unrelated. Nonetheless, we are working to get that issue resolved ASAP and make sure our Customer Care agents are clear on the timing of the actual change.
Again, we apologize to those of you who have enjoyed using the feature, and want you to know that decisions like these are not made without careful consideration. It was a tough call, but one that makes sense for the overall Mail Community.
