Yahoo! Mail data bug affecting iPhones as well as Windows Phone 7

Yahoo! Mail's not having the best of times at the moment. It seems as though the IMAP data leak isn't limited to Windows Phone 7; Apple's iPhone is also seeing data racking up to 25 times more than it should. This could cause people hooking up to Yahoo! Mail via the iPhone's push connection to quickly blast through their data allowance just like Windows Phone 7 users. Yahoo! blamed Microsoft...

Windows Phone 7 data leak problem traced to Yahoo! Mail app

Microsoft has admitted to Paul Thurrott that the "third party app" which has been responsible for mysterious data leakage on Windows Phone 7 is, in fact, Yahoo! Mail. The admission came only hours after Rafael Rivera had already proved this to be the case. Rivera noted that Yahoo! was transmitting about 25 times more data than it needed to. Yikes. Microsoft originally reported that this issue...

Yahoo Messenger for Android now does video calls, Yahoo Mail for Android updated

The Android apps for Yahoo's two most important services -- Messenger and Mail, have received updates. Both apps now support contact sync between Yahoo Contacts and your smartphone's address book. Yahoo Messenger for Android finally has built-in support for video calls, a feature that Yahoo has announced a while back but that until now has only made its way into Yahoo's iOS apps. There are...

Easily set your Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo! Mail as Windows' default email client

Mailto:// links are still pretty common on the Web, and they can be somewhat bothersome if you use a Web-based email app like Gmail or Hotmail. Wouldn't it be great if you could tell Windows to open your webmail's compose page instead of trying to load a desktop program like Outlook Express or Windows Mail? There are actually several ways to get Windows to do this, but not many are as simple...

Yahoo! Mail Beta arrives, claims to be at least twice as fast, safer, easier to use

Last month we brought you a sneak peek at the new Yahoo Mail interface -- and as of today anyone can sign up. Other than the usual slew of new features -- a virus scanner, spam protection, sexy mobile clients -- this launch also heralds the launch of a very purple theme... which you can't seem to change... There's an accompanying Yahoo! Developer Network blog post if you want details of the...

New Yahoo! Mail to be sexier, faster, and more social

Yahoo! Mail's upcoming interface refresh made its first public appearance today, and it's surprisingly good. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, of course, but to me, the overall layout is much more appealing than the Gmail default I've grown accustomed to. The first thing I noticed was that, unlike Gmail, there are tabs provided to switch between inbox and contacts views -- instead of...

Yahoo! introduces Mail, Messenger and Search on Google's Android platform

Yahoo! has come into Google's house, introducing apps for its competing services on the Android platform. Android is obviously geared up to work with Gmail and Google Apps from the start, but now you can use the Yahoo! versions instead. Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger (does anyone still use Yahoo! Messenger?) are now in the Android Market, and there's even a Yahoo! Search widget. The apps were...

Yahoo Mail and the little checkbox that could

Many users of Yahoo's new Mail application have recently noticed the sudden (and very welcome) return of a long lost old friend: the checkbox. While Yahoo's massive and very exciting mail overhaul focused on making web email function more like desktop email, they forgot this one important feature from their web mail roots. The checkbox's triumphant return is testament to the mistakes...

Top 11 Yahoo Mail Tips and Tricks

Yahoo's new version of web mail is, without a doubt, one of the coolest and most fluid Ajax applications we've seen to date. For the average user it offers every major feature that you can find in Outlook or Thunderbird, and it does it with style. But that isn't all, the Yahoo team also took the time to layer the app with embedded tricks, hacks, and shortcuts that makes the whole experience that...

Yahoo Messenger added to Mail Beta

Yahoo! is rolling out an update to Yahoo! Mail Beta that combines Yahoo! Messenger with Yahoo! Mail. While this is a feature that Google's had for a while, I have to say, Yahoo!'s version looks pretty nice. For example, when you start to write an email, the "To:" box will tell you if the contact you're writing to is online and available for chat. And if you've already started writing an email but...

Yahoo! Mail API announced

Yahoo! announced a new API that allows for developers to access a Yahoo! user's mail preferences, messages, and folders. This allows for the ability to search messages, and get mail from POP accounts. The new SOAP API was officially pre-released at the Yahoo! Hack Day conference on the September 29th. Documentation for the new API can be found on the Yahoo! Mail developer list when you sign up...

New Yahoo! Mail Beta features

Yesterday, Yahoo! announced the addition of some new features to the beta version of its mail app, which originally debuted earlier this year. Many of these new features are Firefox-centric. Improvements include: Integrated calendar at bottom of window File uploads/attachments take place in the background Addition of 'spam' column in message list, and return of 'size' column Firefox...

Been dying to try the new AJAXed-out Yahoo! Mail Beta? Well it turns out it only takes a few simple steps to switch your Yahoo! Mail account over to the new hotness. There's instructions over at the curiously-named Google Operating System, but they're a little vague, so here's the step-by-step: Log into Yahoo! Mail and click on "My Account" and enter your password if prompted. On...

AJAXify Yahoo! Mail - Today's Browser Tip

Once again, Greasemonkey does not fail to amaze. Vivek Jishtu has written AJAX for Yahoo! Mail, a Greasemonkey user script (or stand-alone Firefox extension, take your pick) which, in case you hadn't guessed, adds fancy AJAX features to Yahoo! Mail, including message previews and "instant reply." This, at least, will do a bit to fill the Gmail gap while Yahoo! Mail users wait for the...
