Yahoo overhauls email service for Web and mobile devices


SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Yahoo said on Tuesday it was revamping its email for the Web and mobile devices in a move aimed at streamlining the service and making its look consistent across various platforms.

"Since it's such an important part of our daily lives, we're making a few improvements to Yahoo Mail," chief executive Marissa Mayer said in a blog post.

"You've told us loud and clear that you want fewer distractions when it comes to email.You want to quickly login, communicate, and get on with your day. And we've listened. Starting today, the new Yahoo Mail is fast, easy and available anywhere you go."

The improvements will be available over the coming days for Web-based mail as well as on Windows 8, Apple and Android mobile devices.
