Yahoo Mail gets first major revamp in five years
A major communication system revamp.

Yahoo Mail is getting its biggest redesign since 2005 to make it a message hub for its 279 million users.

At the centre of the revamp is a plan to make the communications system much more compatible with social media.

The Yahoo inbox is apparently going to connect with Facebook, Twitter, youtube, Flickr, and Picasa.

This is quite significant, as Yahoo email does have a large user base. If Yahoo gets this right, this could be a real boost for Yahoo,

I like email to be just email.

Everyone seems to be doing this, and as far as I am concerned its another reason to avoid webmail.

@graeme_p, I agree with you, this is one of the reasons why I don't use "free" email accounts. I know social networks cannot be ignored when It comes to marketing, but keep them out of my inbox.

Great, I am glad I don't use Yahoo email.

The way this goes one surely needs his own domain and mail server for the simplest of reasons: to keep emails private. I don't see a reason why everyone wouldn't have that.

Most surely agreed, @aleksl. Though (too bad) my hosts have such funky email GUIs.

@aleksl, I see content targeted ads even in my private email, still.

... and a major set of new headaches like suggestions I am not asking for, data sharing with my preceived "friends" I am not approving in advance and the image attach feature is extremely buggy still.

My hosts as well, though you need not use your hosts email GUIs. I have my email accounts from my web sites set up with windows mail.
As for my yahoo email box, not seeing any changes as of yet. But to me the biggest "revamp" they could make is actually keeping spam out. 95% of emails I receive at yahoo are spam it seems. I only keep my yahoo email because I do have many things tied to it, and have not felt like changing my addresses with all my accounts which do use my yahoo email.
I still don't get this spam thing... why bother sending useless incomprehensible dribble?....
