As you may remember, back in September Yahoo! announced it would release a revamped Yahoo! Mail Beta that would be faster, cleaner and safer than previous Yahoo! Mail versions. Since then Yahoo! has presented the boundaries that had to be overcome to design the new Yahoo! Mail Beta but did not, you know, release it – until now that is.

Yesterday Yahoo! announced that Yahoo! Mail Beta has been released to Yahoo! Mail users all over the world – all 281 million of them.
“For hundreds of millions of people around the world, email is a critical part of their online communications, connecting them to the people who matter most to them. With that in mind, we are rolling out Yahoo! Mail Beta — a faster, safer, more personally meaningful communication experience – seamlessly across PC, mobile and tablet devices,” announced Kakul Srivastava, VP of Product Management, Yahoo! Communications and Communities.


Here is what you can expect to get from the new Yahoo! Mail Beta:

New user interface

Yahoo! Mail Beta has a cleaner, sleeker interface that focuses on speed - helping you navigate faster and more rapidly access the features you need. You will be able to see the new interface regardless if you access Yahoo! Mail Beta from your desktop PC, from a mobile device, or from a tablet device.

Yahoo! has re-architected several core Yahoo! Mail features. By doing so Yahoo! made Yahoo! Mail Beta faster – lighting fast is the word that Kakul Srivastava used. “It’s at least twice as fast as previous Yahoo! Mail versions, and significantly faster in key geographies,” she said.

Spam protection
Back in May we were reporting that according to a Fraunhofer Institute study, Yahoo! Mail fights spam harder, smarter and better. The Fraunhofer Institute found that Yahoo! Mail users saw 40% less spam than Hotmail users and 55% less spam than Gmail users during its research. Yahoo! Mail Beta uses Hadoop technology to offer even better protection against spam.

From within Yahoo! Mail Beta you are able to view and update your Facebook and Twitter pages, check out photos and videos from Flickr, Picasa, and YouTube when someone sends you a link from these sites, or send out an SMS to one of your buddies.

Furthermore, you can use Yahoo! Mail Beta on a variety of devices – on your desktop computer, on your laptop, on your iPhone, on your iPad, or on your Android-powered device.

Since Yahoo! Mail offers unlimited storage space, the introduction of a simple yet powerful search feature was imperative. Yahoo! Mail Beta lets you easily and rapidly locate the messages your are looking for via its new search interface.

“As you can imagine, we have big plans for Yahoo! Mail Beta. Our engineers designed Yahoo! Mail Beta in a way that lets us make changes fast, so stay tuned as we release new enhancements over the coming months,” said David McDowell, Sr. Director of Product Management, Yahoo! Mail.
