Yahoo has revealed a new iPad-optimized version of Yahoo Mail.

"On the heels of our recently launched HTML5 mobile web mail for iPhone you’ll feel right at home with this experience," says Yahoo Mail Product Manager Lee Parry. "We’re keeping all the things users love about our new mobile Web mail, while optimizing it for the gorgeous large screen of the iPad."

Yahoo lists the following features of the iPad version:

  • Faster and more reliable: If you’re offline, Yahoo! Mail uses local caching capabilities to help you access and search your messages even without an internet connection.
  • Yahoo Mail for iPadSmart: You can find and organize your messages using Full Search, personal folders and Smart Folders with messages from your most important contacts and optimized views for photos and file attachments.
  • Feature Rich: View rich photo attachments in their full form, or as previews directly in the inbox view. Also includes a dual-pane view to make reading and organizing a breeze.

The iPad version of Yahoo Mail is available globally (even if iPads aren’t). To access, you only need to go to from your iPad. Yahoo says to expect more improvements and features for this version.
