ymail eh? Sounds a lot like some other big search engine's email name...
rocketmail.com sounds like is will have more speed and it will be faster than ymail
rocketmail seems a lame domain name choice to me. ymail is more of a natural choice considering yahoo.com
This is beautiful. Simple, silly yet very workable solution to a simple and real problem.

Habtom, you are obviously older than 15.
RocketMail was a separate free email service several years ago that Yahoo purchased. I knew someone who had an account with them at the time and used it to login to yahoo afterwards. I wonder if they'll get their original addresses back, if they're still around.
Rocketmail? Sounds very 1995ish.
But this is great, 2 more yahoo domain names that will auto-reject 99% of our emails...
Ymail, sounds like a question. Why mail? I don't know Gmail, sounds like Gee mail. I prefer the latter.
Of course for greater branding, Yahoo may have done this. Ymail = 5 letters Yahoo = 5 letters. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense from the typographical stand point but to equate Yahoo to Google seems like a Herculean effort.
I think the real question is, How much better is XYZ@yahoo.com vs. XYZ@ymail.com? Services, etc.
Or does it just roll off the tongue better/easier?
BTW - I tried to sign up for the new Ymail and cannot find any way 2 dew it. "Dew it", I don't care what you say that there's funny. :)

yay! bagged me a few good ones (and a couple 4 letter ones)
cause its easy, short for friends, fam, biz to remember... and got some I've always wanted till now but were taken (no way I coulda gotten these otherwise on big service like yahoo).
no real reason otherwise. don't really need a deep profound biz reason either. just looks nice a clean to the point that might start using one as a default for personal or biz stuff.

poor google. They spent all that cash for dopey domains. They should have bought mail.com if they are going for the new domains
Imagine Gmail has the same amount of users so don't think this is a decision based on running out of email addresses.
ymail and yahoo are both 5 letters so this isn't a shorter domain... maybe Yahoo is trying to ride on the marketing hype of similar gmail. Rocketmail maybe is targeting a younger niche market.
I wasn't talking about the shorter domain, I was talking about getting shorter IDs for those domain.
eg: Grendel@.... instead of GrendelKhan_TSU@....
>>poor google. They spent all that cash for dopey domains
I meant yahoo ;)

Yeah, they're still around. I have a rocketmail.com address. I can still log into Yahoo mail with my old rocketmail username with ".rm" appended to the end. Mail sent to my rocketmail address ends up in my Yahoo mail inbox.
roketmail.com is going to make lots of money. I now I misspell the name.
"y"mail throws me off because when I see a Y by itself I think of the "ee" sound, like Spanish for "and". so my brain first thinks, "email" for "ymail," and then I realize, "oh, it's 'why-mail'." Point is, I am not a fan of this "ymail" thing.
got my full name and short version signed up before its taken lol, only on ymail of course
I tried using my name to get an email account on ymail but it was already registered. Phew! is it already a success?
I got my name and few a four letter words (not those kind!) and couple super general words. yay!
no idea what good it does me but hey.... 5 minutes outta my day.. :p
