Yahoo! Mail App For Windows 8 Download
There are still people who use Yahoo! as their primary mailing service. And the requests of “adding Yahoo account to Windows 8 mail app” in emails and comments are enough for me to believe in it. So, Yahoo has rewarded those people with brand new interface and Yahoo! mail Windows 8 app.
Reason I left Yahoo! email was heavy advertisements which caused distraction. In a blog post, CEO of Yahoo! said that they have taken this point into consideration and worked on interface. This new interface is not only clean but also quick and speedy.
Yahoo! Mail app for Windows 8 is completely blended in Metro interface and very similar to default mail app. Also, it has a support for Lockscreen notifications for which you will have to allow it to run in background.
Indefinite scroll of emails in inbox makes it more comfortable to browse and find emails. Like any other Metro app, you can use Search bar in Charms bar to find emails.
No options appear on right click in app like other Metro apps. I think there isn’t even a need of that because all necessary function buttons are provided on top.
Compose window looks straightforward with default signature – “Sent from Yahoo! Mail for Windows 8” which can be edited if required.
No multiple accounts support at the moment, only one account can be added.
Should you use Yahoo! Mail for Windows 8
It is completely your choice. If you have only one Yahoo! account for emails, then you can install. But, for more than one emailing account especially if another is non-Yahoo, then I would recommend continuing with default Windows 8 mail app.
