Yahoo Mail rolls out a rebuilt, redesigned


Verizon acquisition, Yahoo today is rolling out a revamped and rebuilt Mail application for its 225 million monthly active users.

The company was famously plagued by two massive security breaches affecting more than a billion users, which ended up knocking $350 million off the asking price for the Verizon/Yahoo deal thatclosed in June for $4.5 billion.

Yahoo says its optimizations have been able to reduce its JavaScript and CSS footprint by 50 percent, compared with the earlier desktop product, which means the app will launch much faster.

Yahoo Mail will offer links to automatically created folders that collect your Photos and your Documents, for quick access.

Yahoo Mail Pro is available on desktop and mobile (via in-app purchase) for all U.S., English-language users today, and will reach other markets soon.
