The new Yahoo email (Beta) looks quite good to use. It has tabbed browing for reading and jumping between emails, spam filtering (hopefully they are working to improve this) plus an RSS feed reader. Here are a couple of images:

Email:


RSS:


The panes resize as you change the shape of the window and it seems to work fine in IE and Firefox.

You can also drag and drop email around your folders.

WOW! Really really nice. Yahoo! Mail was always the best of webmail providers, and this is going better. Both GMail and the new version of Hotmail pales in comparison. I'm beta testing the beta of Hotmail right now, and although is way better than the current version (it's so bad they could only make it better), it's nowhere near as slick. Nice nice...

Only niggle is that it is a bit slow at times, but that could be for other reasons or maybe just because it is in beta and needs some optimization. Feels very like working in Outlook Express on the web.

One weird thing (which I am sure will be changed) is that when you click on to Options you go back to the old interface to set them ...

An issue I have found is that it doesn't subscribe to RSS feeds from DonationCoder. I suspect that is because the links used are accessed via PHP, it doesn't seem to have probs with direct .XML links.
