Yahoo Mail Looks More Like Gmail

After Microsoft's Hotmail (rebranded as Outlook), it's time for Yahoo Mail to change its interface and look more like Gmail. The all-new Yahoo Mail adds support for conversations, custom themes for all devices and no longer requires you to pay for features like disposable email addresses, enhanced filters and automatic message forwarding.

"And if that wasn't enough, we're giving you a monstrous amount of storage, 1TB (that's 1,000 GBs), so you have ample space for all your emails and attachments." That's a lot more than Gmail's 15GB free storage shared with Google Drive and Google+ Photos. While most people will not even use 1% of Yahoo's 1TB of free storage, it's nice to no longer worry about storage. It's interesting to notice that this is actually a downgrade: Yahoo previously claimed that Yahoo Mail offers unlimited storage and now it "only" offers 1TB. Obviously, 1TB and unlimited are synonymous when it comes to email storage.



"This new desktop experience is available in English in the US, Canada, UK, Philippines, Malaysia, India, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa with more countries and languages coming soon," informs Yahoo.

Marissa Mayer can finally switch from Gmail to Yahoo Mail, even though she still uses a command-line email client called Pine. Here are some screenshots.
