Yahoo Canada Beta-Testing New Yahoo Mail Features

This via the Social Software Weblog; Yahoo is testing a variety of really interesting new features in their email service in various venues around the world (excluding the United States). More from the official Yahoo press release:

“Yahoo! Canada Co., an affiliate of Yahoo! Inc., a leading global internet company, today announced the start of a beta test in Canada of a new version of Yahoo! Mail (http://mail.yahoo.ca) – the No. 1 Web mail service in the world*. The Yahoo! Mail beta provides a faster experience with enhanced functionality, such as drag and drop e-mail organization, message preview panes and an integrated RSS reader. Like the current Yahoo! Mail experience, the new version is browser-based, making it universally accessible from any computer connected to the Internet, without the need for a software download. The beta incorporates Oddpost technology and provides the most significant enhancement to the Yahoo! Mail interface and user experience since its launch in 1997.”

The most popular RSS reader in the world by far is My Yahoo (see my previous post on Yahoo Local News, “My Yahoo commands a whopping 59.02% share of the top 20 feed aggregators”) so it will be interesting to see what they come up with as far as an “integrated RSS reader.”

    Yahoo! Mail in the US launched the beta in Sept 2005 and added the integrated RSS reader to the US beta in November

    I’ve been using it for several months. Overall it’s good, tabs, drop & drag, RSS, etc. However a few features are not yet available and at times it seems slower than the old version. I just wish they’ld (Yahoo) get it finalized!
    Aloha,
