sorry if this isn't the right place to post this or if it was posted decades ago (there is NO WAY I'm not 20 light years behind about this but I didn't find it anywhere and the WebmasterWorld search is ... er... gone?), so..............

has anyone used/seen this?

[photomail.mail.yahoo.com...]

Actually, it looks pretty dang useful and the first thing that has come around in a bit to lure me away from my now default gmail account. Fact of the matter is....picture sending IS still a pain in the butt (even though I've devised 2309482348 different work arounds)...if this works well...it would be good and I WOULD consider *ACK* another email switch.

they got me dead on with the mother picture thing. If it wasn't for mother n00bs and the 9098338 times I'm sure everyone has had to explain how to open this or download that...I don't think email would any impetus to develop new features. lol (jk.)

well at least that's pretty much the case for me. ^^

hey neat, I can see it really taking off. I'm sure google will followup with something - using the 2Gb in gmail no doubt. They will still need some fancy html composer + automatic resizer to work properly though.

The grandma/grandpa market is work addressing for sure.

actually they already offer 2gb in the korean market (trying to lure korean users)^^

agreed. SEEMS like google has a while to go though before they integrate such features....though with Picasa in their pocket its possible they could just "flip a switch" (for all intents and purposes) and get it going. I really see this as a very useful add on if its easy to use.

tried it out and best part (for me) was drag and dropping pics from any internet site in the email. I'll have to send a couple email to my mom to get the final verdict from her. lol ^_^

a bit confusing once you start having to loginto yahoo photomail, but that's the cart before the horse.

Well, it won't even let me see what it's all about:

We're sorry, but your computer doesn't currently meet the system requirements for PhotoMail. To use PhotoMail, you need to be on a Windows 2000 or Windows XP PC running Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5.5 or higher. Click here to download the latest version of Internet Explorer.

huh...thought more ppl would find that fact that exists more interesting. (or is it already old passe news? ^^) maybe its just a little too goog centric around these parts. lol.

oh well...I'm diggin it so far and mom's already thinks shes all internet savy cause she received a picture without a hitch. lol. score one for photomail. :)
