With the 18th anniversary of Yahoo Mail hitting this month, the company today launched an all-new mail client for its popular service, debuting on both iOS and Android platforms. Most notably, the new Yahoo Mail app will let users combine accounts from services like Outlook, AOL Mail, and Hotmail all under the same roof, which even extends to the Yahoo Mail experience on the desktop.

"Email is the most prevalent way people communicate online. However, what we want from our inbox is evolving. Mobile use requires a faster and smarter inbox," said Jeff Bonforte, senior vice president of communication products at Yahoo. "Both of these needs are at the center of our new app."

The new app also introduces a new concept in password keeping, called the Yahoo Account Key, which the company describes as "a more secure and simple alternative to the old password." Not much detail was given specifically to the way it functions, but Yahoo said it should simplify the sign-in process for Yahoo Mail thanks to the use of push notifications to grant users access to the secure content located within the app.


The new Yahoo Mail app is available to download from the App Store for free right now [Direct Link]. Yahoo notes that the the desktop version of the overhauled Yahoo Mail is strictly aimed at United States users at launch and will be "coming soon" in other territories. The company encourages those interested in more information regarding its mail client to visit the Tumblr page devoted to the launch of the new software.

I've started transitioning years worth of Yahoo emails into a more private and functional email system. Yahoo mobile has been an under-par app for me with countless issues.
Beside I'm tired of receiving dating adds :D

The real news is that there are people who are actually still using Yahoo.
Not really news as they've had many many users and will continue having quite a few (even if less over time).

??? evAr ???

All email has been hacked at some point. Just as Windows users are hacked because of the larger numbers, the same is true for Yahoo mail.

I did the same. Consolidated my yahoo, comcast, and gmail accounts to my icloud account a while ago. I have forgotten to check those account in months. Just did and am so glad, because I just found out I have a rich relative in moldova that has left me millions. :D:p
Are you sure it was Moldova? Mine have been from Morocco, Beijing, Turkey and the UK (to name a few). Hillary has nothing on me.
