The 'Exciting' New Yahoo Email

Posted by mxyplx (My Page) on

I see Yahoo Email will soon change so that we can see which of our contacts is online. Works both ways I imagine. Presumably so we can conveniently instant mssg them and interupt what they are doing. I don't do instantaneous messaging so no problem there.

But I can't help wondering why Yahoo is so interested in other people minding my business and monitoring if I am online. I sure hope there is a way to block that. I consider that a complete invasion of my privacy (what little there is left of it).

RE: The 'Exciting' New Yahoo Email

If you use yahoo messenger for years now, you have been able see/chat your contacts from the online yahoo email .. turn it on or off is easy.

They have a new faster beta version now.. it loads in a blink... I've use it for a while now... it looks almost the same as the old and modern yahoo mail. Just slight differences... and faster.
