Update: Yahoo turned on the following apps in Yahoo Mail today: Evite, Pingg and drop.io.

Original Article: Yahoo made a few announcements today. Among them were new versions of Search, Messenger, and Mail. You can read about Search and Messenger here and here respectively. Now let’s talk about the new Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo says people can now "do more, share more, and stay better connected from their inbox." They also say that the new enhancements they’ve made to Yahoo Mail are a "key milestone’ to the Yahoo Open Strategy, which extends social and open features.

The New Yahoo Mail

The new design comes with an application box that users can personalize. It combines a calendar, a notepad, and other third-party apps. There’s a new Evie app, which will launch next month and let users create and send invitations to events, as well as check the status of events and add them to their calendar. The app list will also include Flickr, PayPal, Picnik, Xoopit, and ZumoDrive  apps.

There are some new photo sharing features in the new version, which let the user multi-select and drag and drop photos so they are easier to attach to emails. You can also view thumbnail previews and rotate pictures.

Yahoo Mail - Images

Speaking of attachments, they have also increased the limit on file size up to 25MB (it was 10 before).

Yahoo also has a new mobile version of mail on the way, which provides one-click access to check, compose, and search email. It comes with support for downloading attachments like Microsoft Office documents, PDFs, and photos. It also comes with the ability to access personal folders. Yahoo says the mobile enhancements will be available on over 400 devices with HTML browsers.

    Well I’m glad to hear Yahoo mail finally increased the size of the mailbox. I think they lost a lot of people to Gmail because of the low amount. The Evie app sounds interesting. I like the idea of adding different widgets based on your preference.

    Nice to hear that you added some important features in Yahoo but i suggest that it is important that all users should have received a notification about the new face of yahoo or giving them an instruction for an update.

    The improvements are too little to late. Yahoo email is to slow, freezes up to often and has driven me and others to gmail.

    Yahoo mail is still strong compared to it’s search.

    And everything is slower than before, especially spell check, which is too slow to be worth using, evn over a high speed cable connection.

    I’ve been sticking with Yahoo Mail for years, and really love the new look. I think one of my favorite new features is the ability ot send a text message directly from my e-mail.
