Now you can import your Facebook contacts to your Yahoo! Mail and access them from there. Last year, Yahoo! announced Facebook Connect integration and some other plans to improve Mail, so before they add that, you can now import contacts from Facebook.
Along with importing your contacts from sites like Gmail and Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail now allows you to connect with your Facebook friends and easily add their email addresses to your Yahoo! Contacts list.
Yahoo! Mail is one of the most popular webmail services. But unlike, Gmail and Windows Live Mail, they do not allow POP3/IMAP access for free users. This service is only for paid customers.
With free POP access, users can send and receive mails using desktop clients like Outlook Express, Mozilla Thunderbird etc.
Yahoo announced today of adding two new domains to Yahoo! Mail. Ymail.com and Rocketmail.com were planned to go live at 12PM (Pacific). And users can now create new email accounts using on these domains. I’d prefer you to hurry up before all the good usernames are taken on both the domains. You know how these spammers are!
Yahoo still continues its on-going attempt to stop users from moving to other email providers, like Gmail, and is working hard to keep its existing ones loyal to them. To improve their mail service, Yahoo! Mail has added two new email domains, Ymail and Rocketmail. Currently, both ymail.com and rocketmail.com are pointing to Yahoo! Mail, but users will be able to create accounts on these domains after 12PM (Pacific).
A few days ago, Yahoo announced on their Yahoo Mail blog that they are soon going to remove the tagline ads that show up below every mail sent through Yahoo Mail.Happy? I bet all Yahoo Mail users will be. These ads were very annoying and could take lots of space in the end, if the mail is a chain-mail, and is being forwarded to every person in our Address Book.
These ads were inserted at the bottom of every message, which were short messages comprising of various products. Yahoo, at the moment, is under pressure to increase its revenue and would sell every ad it has. But I don’t think these taglines would make much difference so they thought to remove it.
