What's the spec for yahoo mail?
1 Gb inbox, 10 mb attatchments, access to all free Yahoo! services, new and improved interface on its way and trust me this one is way better than gmail's.
yahoo messenger is quite good, google has a limited chat service, not as popular as yahoo or msn messenger.
I agree. After all cnet called it the swiss knife of messengers. I heard rumours that Yahoo! and MSN are collaborating to let users of each service chat with the ones in the other service. That's so cool! But the only slight grudge among Y!Messenger users is that it can consume a lot of resources and that is true.
So, what now ? Yahoo Beta mail is better than Google mail ?
I was thinking about it the other day...
the reason I prefer GMail to any of my other accounts is because the labels are much easier and frendlier to use than having to put mails in folders. I just label every mail on opening it (sometimes more than 1 label per mail) and archive it (Eg: A dumb forward from a friend is labelled under his/her name and also under the label "Dumb Fwd")... and then searching for mail becomes a hell of a lot easier.\
Though the interface of Yahoo looks much sleeker (though a lot reminiscive of Outlook Express ), I'll stick with GMail until Y! can find a better way of organising emails efficiently and quickly.
I love the new features of yahoo beta. However, with regard to online free e-mail service, I only choose Gmail. Nothing more, nothing less.
Yes that's one thing I love about Gmail. But Gmail wasnt the first to introduce this concept. The Bat email client can do the same with any email account i.e, organise mails as threads.
Ym is gonna beat gmail.
I had signed up earlier but I think now they ar eonly inviting people using address @yahoo.com.Mine is .co.in
looks pretty cool.
I got my own mail server (FTGate Pro) that I run off my local machine, I can have as many mailboxes as my machine can handle...YAHOO!!!!!!
hrm looks sexy
gmail is hot stuff
labels are nice...i'm still on the beta waiting list right now.
I'd be interested to explore beta once i get it, but gmail seems to be pretty good right now
one grudge, sometimes, gmail connection is slow, even on my home comp (which is deece) Ajax is problematic especially on slower computers, and sometimes, i can't even open the mail, but overall it's great!
plus the quick reply and forward is great!
I am still waiting for an invitation...
u are very lucky indeed
Pictures. It’s all about those annoying picture, animated ads which show up next to Yahoo stuff. That’s the reason why I prefer Gmail, all ads are nice, unmoving text ads and are extremely ignorable.
That interface does look pretty sleek though, is this also an invite-only thing, like the original Gmail? The bouquet of flowers right next to it kind of ruins the whole computer screen though What can I say? I’m a hardcore perfectionist…
Doesn’t Gmail have about 2.5 Gigs of storage? I guess up to a certain point it doesn’t really matter anymore, for instance I’m only using like 2 percent of my gmail storage. I think the google talk thing is pretty cool too
But anyways, congratulations on getting yahoo beta! Hope you’re enjoying it!
hmm... looks cooler and cleaner than the original one.. but they should realli remove those intrusive ads at the bottom and the side.. Gmail still rawks over this though..
I think google is quite good because it has a Chat function, and also more then 2704 mb free space, but the upload speed is not stable, sometimes fast but sometimes slow as a snail.
just got an invitation for Windows Live Mail recently.. faster and looks nicer than the original.. But similarly, there is still a big ugly advertisement there.. again, my previous stand, Gmail rawks over Yahoo! mail or Windows Live Mail..
I love my gmail account, all its storage, and it's labels. I have been inclined over the years to not like many things offered by Yahoo! Does this new mail service attach text ads to the end of all outgoing mail?
how do you get it
it is so beautiful~~~
i love it so much
can you tell me how to get it?
Send me donation of 10 FRIH$ along with your old email address, if any body need gmail invitation.
nam_siddharth, you're not allowed to sell free things in the frihost forums Anyway, i prefer gmail because of it's user-friendliness and the almost 3GB space. It totally rocks! i don't like the 10mb attachments though...
Yo I love the new Yahoo look. It's slick elegant and it seems to load so much faster. I use hotmail, yahoo and gmail.
Hotmail is the account that I use for chatting (most peeps chat with MSN).
Yahoo! Mail is my box for personal mails (family, friends NOT chatting) and I sign up at all other websites with my Yahoo! Mail account so I have alot of my account and subsciption information in this box.
GMail is the box that I use for professional things. It sounds better to walk to a company and say that your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org rather than email@example.com (people are less prone to do biz with hooligans ).
All 3 services have their pros and cons I guess. I couldn't do without em.
well if it is so kewl as u say then post a link ( if that is possible )
Yes, I have got it too, and it looks really neat... But it takes more time to load than the previous one. But, I don't know why, I still like gmail for some reasons. And, everybody doesn't get it at once. The first time I tried it it said something like -
And blah..blah..blah.. something more.
How many else have got the new one?
I've been using Gmail and the new Yahoo Beta version both roughly about a year. I have to say I prefer gmail over yahoo any day, the spam filters are ton's better, and the drag and drop features of yahoo are annoying when your inbox gets 1000+ messages a day, I say just label and go! Then of course I have to completely agree with caroline, yahoo's adds annoy me to no end.
Yea about ads. Who the hack would want to put up with all that crap. I just looked at the screen shot above, and I almost puked. Its like watching a constant feed of popups.
I freakin love gmail, the features are just great, there is nothing I can't possibly think of that I don't like about gmail. And best of all there are barely any ads, just the little text ad banner on the side.
More space would be nice, I have filled up about 60% of my gmail space in 2-3 years. At this rate I'll run out in another 2 years or so.
But yea, screw yahoo.
I wouldn't say the interface is sleek... maybe super dooper hunkydory. Personally I think those icons do anything but add to the sleekness. Maybe I'm a gmail snob. Maybe for good reason. Who knows.
Isn't all up to personal taste anyways?
Ah yes, and anyone who wants a free Gmail invite just holler.
Google has a limited chat service?
What do you mean by this?
