Try Oddpost right now!!
- So yeh, the new Yahoo! Mail, as you might have heard, will integrate
Oddpost technology. Oddpost was a webmail that simulated a desktop
mail client like Outlook...the true power and originality of this
application was that it was all webbased.
Last July Yahoo! bought the company.Both teams hav ebeen working ever
However you may want to try out Oddpost (for free of course) as it
used to be. This requires Internet Explorer. Don't worry, for the new
Yahoo! Mail plateform, the application will also work in Firefox
and enjoy the preview
- I had the occasion to try this demo a few weeks ago. I loved it right away. Add some Yahoo! colors and features to it, and you could very well get the best web-based e-mail service. Oddpost is so easy to use, I love the drag and drop option. Integrating RSS is an excellent idea. It will save me time reading all the latest news in one place with my mail.
Firefox. The only reason why I do not use Firefox all the time right now is because of Yahoo! Mail. You lose so many options in Y!Mail right now. When the new Y!Mail is released, I will finally switch to Firefox definitely.
Thanks Guillaume for the link and the mailing list.

- I used Oddpost abut three years ago while I was working in a
corporate environment and needed as webclient to access my personal
e-mail account. At that time it most closely imitated Outlook
Express. The only problem I recall was that it was quite slow
(there may have been an issue with loading other than an American
English dictionary, but I do not recall with certainty). Other than
that, it was easy to use and replicated a desktop client effectively.
Yahoo Mail - with 2Gb of storage - is already a first class
offering so it will be good to see the new interface.
- Never mind, managed to sign up for the demo account..
So far so good. I think theyve dropped the ball with lack of
labelling though. I mean, sure some people may prefer folders, but
honestly, labelling is FAR more efficient.
The calendar looks ok, but id expect the Yahoo version to be
considerably better. There isnt even a month view on this...
