If no free POP3 access then it's a no go for me; I'll stick to Gmail.

Here is some more info about this from BetaNews

Yahoo on Tuesday began a limited beta test of a new Web mail system, which includes a redesigned interface that mirrors desktop-based clients like Microsoft Outlook. Drag and drop features are supported through DHTML, and a new search engine brings added support for attachments.

Yahoo said in June it was planning to launch a new version of Yahoo! Mail that would feature an instant preview pane. Many of the changes in the beta were taken from the company's acquisition of Oddpost last year. Users who dislike the new version will be given an option to switch back to the traditional interface.

Knowing that the new mail system has gone Beta doesn't mean they have access to it, if you pay attention none of the news sites has offered screenshots yet.

Nobody is using the Beta except Oddpost subscribers who chose to participate at this stage, they will begin to roll out the Beta to the 'more frequent Yahoo! Mail users' in the coming 1-2 months and eventually be rolled out to all Yahoo! Mail users in the coming 6 months. (Or so I was told)

Thread updates with lots of new screenshot goodies, if you want to know anything more feel free to ask.

And no it doesn't work with Oprah, it gives you a page complaining browser not supported when you use Oprah to access the beta and offer you to use the old interface or log out.

To give them credit Yahoo started this project more than 10 months ago, while AOL started theirs a little more than 5 months...

You will be able to, eventually most active Yahoo! Mail users (people got an account and actually use it) will be switched to the new interface to test it, but patience is gold my friend, so if you don't already have Yahoo! Mail, sign up for one and begin to use it :yes:

Microsoft is coming out with a new Hotmail, except it's neither looking sweet or has tons of space... So I think Microsoft is going to disappoint you this time

Anyway this new system is still quite buggy, I already find 30+ problems with it that needs to be fixed, so there's still some time to go:pinch:h:

That's why I decided to use my own domain for e-mails already, the mail service switch is getting frustrating :pinch:

By the way I shrunk the images now, click on it and you can see the full version, I shrunk the image so much that dialup users should be able to browse this thread without problem actually...
