Yahoo has launched a beta version of an improved webmail service which features a redesigned user interface and brings web email closer in usability to desktop applications such as Microsoft Outlook.
Newly developed features include the ability to drag-and-drop messages into folders, a pane for previewing message content, the ability to keep multiple message windows open, and keyboard shortcuts such as a one-button delete feature.
The firm has also added advanced functionality for searching through headers, attachment content and message bodies, along with the ability to scroll through all messages in a folder, rather than having to negotiate multiple pages.
Users who sign up will be able to toggle the beta version and their current
version, and changes they make in either version will automatically be reflected
in the other.
The service will be free in the basic form, with fees for more storage and some additional features. The new service can be accessed using either Internet Explorer (version 5.5 or higher) or Mozilla Firefox (version 1.0 or higher).
Yahoo said that it will add other features present in the current version of Yahoo Mail, allowing users to manage, organise and transmit photo files.
