How this New Look Looks New

Yahoo Mail is now wrapped with a new interface. The layout is minimalist and it is a little bit clean despite the 300-pixel wide ads on the right. You can get rid of these ads when you upgrade to the Ad-Free Yahoo Mail as described in this article.

In addition to the new look, Yahoo Mail also added a nicely set icons on the left command panel as shown below.

Using the very small arrow (less than or greater than symbol) at the top of Inbox, the panel can be collapsed or expanded for better view of email messages.

Where are your custom created email folders? Clicking on the "folder" icon just below the "Trash" icon will pull out or slide your email folders for viewing.

Clicking on the "Compose" command will give you a beautifully set message composer. Depending on the email accounts you have added to your Yahoo Mail, you can pick which email account to send from. The layout is entirely different from the last or previous interface as it is now appearing as a conventional page. The HTML formatting are arranged at the bottom along with the SEND button.
