Yes yes yes,,,
Just got found out that Yahoo! Mail Beta is here...
So whats new with yahoo mail beta. Well, the gud point is that there is nothing new, it is exactly similar to your outlook express with a xtra "ad" panel on the right hand side...

Have not explored all the features yet. But at the first glance, it looks coooool and fast...

Here is a snapshot.

  • log in to Yahoo Mail

  • select, for example, Yahoo UK
  • click Finished
  • go to Yahoo Mail

  • click on "Try Beta Now".

I think they have stopped rolling out more accouts for Beta Testing.
I followed the steps you have mentioned, but I didn't get the invitation.
They have added me to a waiting list from the What's New > Beta section.

Maybe...
In that case, all you can do is wait and watch...

By the way, one of my friends from microsoft said that this is a replica of "windows live mail beta".

Any way, we can check it out??

You must have noticed that in the new Yahoo Mail Beta, they have removed the checkboxes against each mail.
now the problem here is that in case you want to directly delete/move an email {without reading/opening it}, you'll have to hide the mail preview panel and then delete it and then again make your panel visible.

Yes, i think they will be adding it later...
It may come in the "view" dropdown where they have stated - "more view options coming soon"
