Yahoo Mail out of beta - now has SMS too

Posted on Tuesday, August 28 2007 @ 00:51:12 CEST by

The new Yahoo Mail has dropped the beta tag today, and to celebrate the launch Yahoo added a couple new features like the ability to send text messages to cell phones:
A button at the top of the page gives you the option to choose between sending an e-mail, chatting over IM or sending a text, or SMS, message, for free. You enter a contact's name, type in the mobile phone number, and send a message. It appears in a talk bubble next to your avatar in the Yahoo Mail window. The person receiving the text message can simply respond via text.

This feature will be useful for reaching people when you know they aren't online but likely have their cell phones with them. It is also appealing for those of us who are SMS-phobic.

Yahoo Mail also has a new shortcuts feature that enables you to quickly add an address to your contacts list or view it on a map, add an event to the calendar, and even conduct a Web search on certain terms. When items in a message have blue dash underlines, you can hover over them with the cursor and right-click to call up the short-cut action.

Now you can send instant messages not only to Yahoo Mail and Messenger customers but also to people using Windows Live Messenger.
