Last Thursday, I just receive an email saying that Yahoo is appreciating me for being with yahoo for 11 years. It seems that Yahoo is upgrading it’s email system. Here is the copy of the e-mail.

I am not always using my yahoo account ever since I transferred all my e-mail and begin communicating through Gmail. But because of this new changes I might again use yahoo e-mail for personal messages. I want it’s unlimited capacity which is better compared to Gmail’s 7 GB capacity. According to their media presentation their attachment will hold a bigger capacity.
I have managed to import my contacts from Facebook to my old yahoo account. What I am also interested is their advertisement about “Even Better Less Spam”, I just hope that spam e-mail will be less through their new filtering system.
I have tried to merge those accounts with duplicates entries.
How will upgrading will help Yahoo? If more email user will again activate their yahoo account, it will only mean that there will be lots of potential customers to their advertisers. Yahoo was the number free email provider long before Gmail. But as of this time, I am only seeing few advertisements.
Yahoo News is also incorporated in the new setup of yahoo e-mail.
So will they succeed this time ? Let’s find out.
