Re: [Y-Mail] Re: Yahoo Beta Ajax Interface
- When I started reading this thread what came to my mind was a fine bottle of wine... it needs to breathe after opened
Think of going into a store for some wine (going to the Internet searching for an email account)
You see rows upon rows of bottles (lots of free email providers)
Some like reds (pop3) some like whites (basic) some prefer champagne (Imap)
Some like to try different kinds (beta testers)
Some people like the same kind all the time (fear of change)
All people have different pallets for various reasons (different needs for their email accounts)
There can never be one type of grape and one type of wine (one email provider)
What there can be is a vineyard (yahoo) that produces different kinds of flavors (various addresses,various email accounts,paid,free,intl, .com,@your name,...etc)
And in order to enjoy a good wine after it breathes is to "sip" it not gulp it like wine out of a box (Microsoft)!!!
Microsoft is notorious for rolling out quicker than the fixes can be applied so if we all learn a bit of patience (like we all had prior to the Internet) than in time we will all become a happier world of techies. And also lets keep in mind that google and yahoo merged last year

Subject: [Y-Mail] Re: Yahoo Beta Ajax Interface
I don't know. Despite having a Spanish Yahoo! account, I was already
able to use Yahoo! Mail Beta when they released it in September.
On the opposite I wasn't able to get an invite for Windows Live Beta.
Well, a few days ago it was possible to use Windows Live Beta without
invite so a tried it and it has much less features than Yahoo! Mail
Beta, there are bugs, furthermore it doesn't work yet with Firefox
(well, it works with Firefox, but currently with less features than in
the old Hotmail version).
I don't understand your complaint about keyboard shortcuts, they work
with the normal version of Yahoo! Mail (as well as with the beta version).
I understand you would like to try Yahoo! Mail Beta as soon as
possible, but on the other hand such a new version is something which
needs time to be developped and I think it's normal to limit the
number of beta testers at the beginning.
