Re: [Y-Mail] Re: Is Neo ready to leave beta?
- My main frustration with Neo is that I can not stop myself from comparing it to the All-New Yahoo Mail. I can do nothing but admit that the All-New is still amazing. I can click in a sender's name and see all the messages from this sender, I can choose to see only my contacts messages, sort this messages in all possible ways, I have that useful timeline that keeps me aware of my next appointments, I have highlighting in my messages links, names and dates; all I have to do is click to have a search, a new calendar entry or a new message. My click with the left button is powerful and the interface is intuitive, simple and clever.Neo have a long way before reaching its predecessor, in my humble opinion. I am not willing to use a product that loses functionality when compared to the previous product.--

Subject: Re: [Y-Mail] Re: Is Neo ready to leave beta?Sorry, wasn't having a moan about lack of yahoo input into group, it's just good when it comes.Disappointed .. ummm ... perhaps a bit but equally happy - if what we wanted was a snappier email program that works well also has well integrated social features, then yahoo has nearly got there. However, if we were hoping for a game changer that would make people turn heads and come to yahoo from another email program (in the way GMail did when it first arrived), then I'm not sure we have it.

Subject: [Y-Mail] Re: Is Neo ready to leave beta?hey,
There are actually people from the Mail team who subscribe and/or read this group and sometimes reply to requests. Granted this is not done on a regular basis but in the end this is not a Yahoo-owned community, just a user group.
As for Neo.. well. i did expect more. I mean we've reached the point where going all social simply is not the way to go...; and well to be honest, the twitter/ Facebook integration has returned several connection failures... What I believe Yahoo might fail to understand in some way is that A LOT of people actually do care about real features. This is why Gmail keeps growing. There is tons of inspiration to create a truly good product
I myself would have love to see some voice/video features for Yahoo Mail messenger or some sort of Google Voice competitor
At least more interesting third party apps
I guess I was too ambitious
