Yahoo has finally decided to give millions of its email service users a reprieve for their many troubles.
It as released its new version of series in the .com email service. The release of ymail is an effort to increase its profile portfolio and make itself an attractive solution. The email offering Yahoo is poised to launch is a @ymail.com extension.
This will free up millions of usernames for those frustrated at being firstname.lastname@example.org. The new version is a competitor to the Gmail series offered by Google.
According to Yahoo Inc officials, users who take up an @ymail.com address will be treated to the same slick system enjoyed by all current Yahoo customers with drag and drop functionality and ‘Unlimited’ storage as well as an integrated instant messenger (compatible with Yahoo! Messenger and Windows Live Messenger), spam filter and virus checker.
The statements were made by Yahoo! GM of Communication and Community Products, George Hadjigeorgiou.
The officials further state that “After ten years, the huge popularity of Yahoo! Mail has meant personalized email addresses are in great demand,” George added that “The launch of ymail.com allows more people the chance to get the email addresses they really want and to provide them with a brilliant starting point for their daily online experience.”
Ymail addresses will hit the road on 20 June and over 260m Yahoo users globally will experience an immense change and shift in Yahoo’s corporate and infrastructure profile.
