Yahoo announced that it now includes new package and event notifications at the top of the Yahoo Mail inbox for easier viewing. For example, if Amazon sends you an order email, you'll see a package notification with shortcuts to shipment tracking and the original email for your order.


"For upcoming events from sites such as Eventbrite, Fandango, Ticketmaster and others, Yahoo Mail shows you a snapshot of the event details and a quick link to the original invite and directions," Yahoo says in a blog post. "Once you’ve read the event or package notification, you can simply dismiss it."


"With our new package and event reminders, Yahoo Mail now does the work for you!" it says. "No need to search through emails to see when your package will be delivered or find the address for today’s birthday party."

The new stuff is rolling out in the U.S. over the next couple days. Yahoo says it will also expand on the types of notifications it shows users.
