Yahoo Email Gets a New Look

What’s Different

There is overall less clutter in your email so you can concentrate on what you want to do.  The ads have been removed from the left side of the page and the font size has gotten larger for reading emails.  For those people who enjoy customizing their inbox, they have more color options. You can also easily resize the reading pane for your emails.

Better Management

You can easily filter your emails between your contacts and connections under the View menu and select multiple files at once to send in an email.  You can also see thumbnails of any photos you upload and it’s faster to send them now. You can also quickly find all of the applications you regularly use on the bottom left hand side of your page.  This includes the Calendar and Notepad apps.

While you can still select all of the messages in your inbox, you also have the additional option of just choosing those in your view. The message size column is no longer visible even though it is still available if it is important to you.  To add it back in, you can go to View and look under Show and select Size Column.

If you really don’t like the new look of Yahoo email, you can always revert back to the old style.  All you have to do is go to Options on the right side of your inbox and choose Switch Yahoo Mail Classic.
