I first used Yahoo! Mail since I am on secondary school and I still use the same account till now. Recently, Yahoo! Mail gets a new facelift to promote its mail services. Feeling the heat from Gmail maybe?
The graphics used for the homepage are prettier and it seems that they are promoting many ways that you can access and send your mail, plus the ability to instant message your friends from your mobile. Whatever they do, I still love Yahoo! Mail for its simplicity and ease of use (and I love Gmail too!).
updates : it is not just a facelift! it is a totally new yahoo mail! will post some updates soon!
