      It's actually IE7 running in Windows Vista Beta 1 - just to make sure that if anything can break it will (oh - and it was all in a Virtual machine...)

      You have a plus account and still get a rather huge button/box for feedback and ideas? Mine doesn't have that. (Kind of glad- never liked the appearance of that.) I personally think the beta AJax build of Yahoo Mail will look over cluttered when they finally release it to the rest of the crowd (with free accounts.) The ads will be bulky and annoying, I think, in my opinion.

      The Y! Beta code does a browser version check that doesn't like IE7 - you'll find a lot of sites out there like that. However, you can hack the Registry to set the IE User Agent string to something that gets past the test, and you'll find IE7 works fine:

      Copy the following text into a file with a .reg extension - then Merge it into your Registry
