Yahoo - The New Yahoo Mail
Glad to share my experience with the New Yahoo Mail.
With 1 Terabyte of storage space and a whole new user interface, yahoo has a lot going on which has to be discovered.
I turned onto this mail because I needed a unique domain name for my professional email, which wasn’t available at other email providers. The very first look startled me. The following screen popped up as I clicked on the Sign Up button, asking for my basic details and it gave me an option to use my pre-existing email address instead of creating a yahoo specific mail, also the second pop-up didn’t require my phone number as it would sync with my pre-existing mail while providing me the privileges of a yahoo account.
Another feature that helped me with the experience was the tutorials tab to begin with; right at the eye catching spot I saw the details in appealing colorful tones. The videos were elaborate with good video and audio qualities.
The feature which is cherry on the top was introduced in the searches. Yahoo Mail has got 3 different types of search as per your need, People search, if you want to search for a mail from specific person(along with the details of the person and the contents you have shared on the right hand panel), People plus Keyword search for the details which a little more specific also in case you want to search specific words from your mail. Third is the advanced search wherein you can add up all your details and click search(even the attachments :O). It even has a direct yahoo web search functionality.
4. Interactive UI and personalization
The thing that got me glued to this email service was the mail box personalization feature, it provides various templates, themes and layouts in the settings panel, to give the mail box a total personalized experience, the feature is very handy to be found on main page also in details under the settings panel.
5. Email newsletter and address customization
I have been really caught up in the past few days to find a solution for all the useless newsletters that I had subscribed and don’t get time to de clutter.It was a real annoyance to receive irrelevant newsletters as mail notifications, hovering to which this yahoo disposable mail section has helped me a lot. Also I can create sub mail boxes with any email id under my yahoo mail box to receive or send replies and responses, can it get any better? Well yes, the last part of this feature had left me awestruck.
6. Photos, documents, travels, purchases and much more.
From uploading photos to attaching them directly navigating and searching amongst it, along with documents of all formats to your travel plans and meet ups, yahoo mail has covered it all, to add more to this you can sync another mail box to add in these details to the yahoo account. P.s One can also add new folders as per the need.
Explore more of Yahoo Mail by Signing Up and trying it out by yourself.
It has been a while since Yahoo had been low in business but now by using the evolved product first hand, I can definitely vouch for them.
1. A good UX can not only elevate the product reputation but it also leaves a positive long lasting impact on the users.
2. The applications which allow maximum user customization and personalization are expected to receive great feedbacks and growth curves.
3. Simple evolution in designs can appeal the audience by keeping the base functionalities in place.
Possibly the Contacts, Notepad and the Calendar UI can be improvised or balanced as per the theme of the mail box. Maybe yahoo can opt for some better marketing and advertising strategies and promote this new version of yahoo mail , I am sure many people like me are looking for some cool interactive changes and are ready to explore new options. Great work here DavidRobinson(Lead Designer Yahoo mail).
