Yahoo! Mail Tries, and Misses

Yahoo! Mail Tries, and Misses

I have written thrice (1, 2, 3) in the past about the new Yahoo! mail interface, the Ajaxed interface to Yahoo! mail. It is incredible how slowly they make improvements to it. It’s not like Yahoo! cares what I say, but of the points I raised over two years ago in my first post, they still haven’t all been fixed.

But Yahoo! maybe trying harder. There is now a preference to add the greater-than signs on replied to messages:

Yes, each and every word of the message I’m replying to gets its own line. But it gets worse! Here’s what I get when I send the replied message without touching anything:

Here each word of the replied to message gets its own line separate from the greater-than signs. I hope this is just a simple bug (I will submit a bug report about this) but this is simply ridiculous.

One thought on “Yahoo! Mail Tries, and Misses

  1. Don’t worry, when Microsoft takes over they will ruin everything so completely that you’ll just switch to a different service.
