A new design and a completely set of functions in the Yahoo! Mail app 

Yahoo! Mail is a completely new designed platform that was developed under the approach of making easier the organization of personal information and other functions, always respecting the personal space of the user, along with comprehensive customization at every level. 

This means that, for example, with a tap on the screen users are able to unsubscribe from services and emails that are arriving but that are quite annoying and overwhelming. This is a very useful and unique function to stop receiving messages that are useless or that are related to some newsletters or services, which simply are not used anymore or there is the intention to discard.

Screen reader is a great example of assistive features for blind users.

Yahoo! Mail is compatible with other emails services available, so every account from Gmail, Outlook, AOL and other platforms will work just fine and messages will be received. This is especially useful if users want just one place where they can check all of their emails and not separate apps, taking more time to check messages. 

With email accounts from other service providers in just one place with Yahoo! Mail, and the possibility to use them through the app and also with internet browsers on desktops, the platform is a comprehensive solution for email that involves all personal devices, mobile and local. 

YahooMail improves in terms of design and functionality

Yahoo Mail is definitely one of the most known and recognized services respecting this segment of online platforms, being in fact a pioneer and having plenty of years available along with other web pages and solutions provided by Yahoo!

In order to adapt to most recent and modern times, and also with the intention to compete face to face with other email services like Gmail and Outlook, Yahoo! Mail is updating its platform in terms of design, functions and security, with a whole new layout regarding the mobile app available for Android and iOS, as well as for internet browser and the traditional web site. 


Of course, improvements not only are related with design and layout, but also involve the inclusion of important features that are valuable these days, along with ease of use, stability and privacy as matters that are extremely important. 

With these changes in every aspect, Yahoo! Mail is looking for to fight back and recover users and market share that once had before, from Gmail, Outlook and AOL as the most relevant contenders in the segment of email solutions, with a new approach and extensive set of advantages and possibilities. 

A new design and layout in Yahoo! Mail app and web platform 

Yahoo! Mail is now offered through an app and website for mobile devices and desktops and laptops respectively, with a novel design based on the new tendencies brought by touch-based applications and versions of mobile operating systems, such as Android and iOS. 

This new design both for the platform and web site takes advantage of tabs to offer the different functionalities, folders and possibilities offered by the service, all in one place and highlighting customization options, reliability, ease of use, responsiveness and stability, along with an integral use of email solutions that we will be addressing in a further section of the article. 

In details, Yahoo! Mail now offers a layout based on tabs placed at the bottom that allows users to access the different functions of the platforms, along with a main menu that appears on the left with the tab of a button. These categories are: 

  • Inbox: the main tab of the platform is the inbox, in which all messages and emails received are shown by categories that can be selected by the user. Also, by tapping on the inbox on the screen a different set of options will be shown, such as other folders, sent messages, trash can and even Spam folder. 
  • Deals: when the app is used in English and in a region where it is available, the second tab corresponds to Deals, in which different promotions, sales and more are shown to the users, along with mailing that comes from retailers sending exclusive offers. There are also available cash back rewards for users and coupons. When the app is used in Spanish or Deals or not available in the region, the tab is substituted with the Starred option. 
  • Attachments: the third tab is attachments and in this section all received and sent files included on emails will be shown, in order and filtered in relation to file format. In this way, finding a PDF, document, spread sheet, photo or video is very easy to find among all the emails without having the need to search for them manually.
  • Subscriptions: another valuable function provided by the new Yahoo! Mail platform is the subscription tabs for mailing lists and newsletter services, so ads and offers arrive to this section and not the inbox. In the same way, by using this section it is possible to remove subscriptions to services very easy when they are not used anymore. 

Customization options in Yahoo! Mail 

Along with design, functionality and reliability, Yahoo! Mail includes plenty of options respecting customization to make our inbox and general experience unique, according to own taste and requirements. 

First of all, there are themes and colors available to make the app and platform stand out in mobile and local devices, including red, blue, yellow, green, white and all the gradients and tones between these colors. 

And a feature that is impossible not to be included is the dark mode, allowing to use the service in a more comfortable way in phones and also on traditional internet browsers, especially at night. Other actions that can also be customized are the swipes that perform different functions of deleting or mark emails as read or unread. 

Also, it can be selected different modes for message preview and conversation view to group messages, either in the form of chat or more classic as independent emails. Notifications can be customized as well, in relation to sound, vibration and time when notifications must be received and when they must not. 

General functions of Yahoo! Mail and account integration 

Yahoo! Mail includes a wide set of general useful functions and options, as well as being capable of functioning as a hub for different email accounts, even when they are from other service providers. 

So, if users want to take advantage of Yahoo! Mail but they have other accounts from Gmail, Outlook or AOL, they can use them and integrate them with the platform and all messages will be received, in just one place and one app or platform. 

Other functions available in the platform include the possibility to add signatures, filters, sync contacts on the cloud to use them on different devices, availability of unlimited storage capacity for attachments and security possibilities that are very modern and adapt to current days, including fingerprint-based access as credential to log in and open the app.

Mail Pro plan in which by paying 0, 99 dollars per month, ads will not be shown and other functions will be included, in addition to those that are available with no charge whatsoever.

Thirdly, to the very right and with the most available space we have the content panel, where the text of every selected note is shown in this segment for reading and also for editing.

Using Yahoo Calendar: viewing options and default settings

For example, there will be only one calendar at this point with the name of the user on it as default, where all new created events will be saved until another calendar is created.

The default calendar with your name on it will appear by default in the “My calendars” menu placed at the left.


On another part, the default view of the calendar in general is by month and shows the thirty or thirty one days of the month. For many this may be the most convenient view.


However, by using the folder panel on top of the calendar the user is able to change the view and modify it from month view to Today, Day, and Week, Year or List view according to the user´s choice.


For instance, if we exchange from Month view to Week view the calendar will be showing the seven days of the week, along with the available hours of the day to include new events, being also a convenient viewing option to keep in mind.


Moving to the right side of the calendar we will be able to see a “To Dos” panel with a default list with our name on it, as the available tool to write different tasks and other things to be done.


Such panel is possible to be hidden from default viewing layout by clicking on the “Actions” button placed right next to the option panel on top of the calendar, and then clicking on “Hide to dos.” We will talk in more detail about this To Do tool panel later.
