Yahoo must have realized that they have to upgrade Yahoo Mail Classic to catch up with the improvements in Google Gmail which introduced Google Voice Chat and Video Chat late last year. The Yahoo Mail Classic upgrade is truly timely. Yahoo Mail Classic update includes the following set of improvements to the old Yahoo Mail Classic:
List of Yahoo Mail Classic Upgrade Features and Improvements
Chat and Mobile Text from Your Inbox
Now sending an instant message or mobile text is as easy as sending an email. Look for the Chat & Mobile Text module above your personal folders in Mail Classic. Change your status to Available to get started.
Free Email Stationery!
Have fun choosing the perfect background for an email. Stationery adds a splash of color and helps you to turn an ordinary message into an extraordinary one.
Safe Image Handling
For quick message loading and top–notch spam protection, all images in emails are now initially blocked. To see them, just click Show Images—or go to Options to set SpamGuard to treat images differently.
Quick Message Flagging
Just click the dot to the left of the sender’s name. Or if the email’s open, click the flag in the header area. Bring ALL flags to the top with one click on the flag at the top of the flag column!
Easy “Forward As Attachment”
Windows users: Hold down Ctrl and click Forward to forward an email as an attachment. For Macs, hold down the Apple key, then click Forward.
Basic Folder Order
Capital–lettered names don’t appear first anymore in your alphabetized list of personal folders. To rename a folder, just click it, then by the folder name at the top of the page, click Rename.
If you add a signature in Options, now you’ll actually see it each time you compose a message. Type above it. Then leave it as–is, change or delete it—just like any other text in an email.
