Yahoo debuts new domain name in e-mail

Share this content:

 

Yahoo is taking on Google's Gmail by introducing its ow e-mail addresses. It has introduced the availability of two new e-mail domains that will give users the chance to register for the e-mail address or Yahoo ID of their choice at ymail.com or rocketmail.com.

Yahoo has more than 260 million users worldwide and this new service is available for free globally. The online giant has attributed the need for this new naming system to the fact that many of the desired e-mail addresses have already been taken and hopes to open it up.

The new addresses will have the same features as existing Yahoo addresses including unlimited storage, instant messaging components and spam filtering. E-mail addresses at the new domains will have the same Yahoo Mail features as addresses at the yahoo.com domain.

Users looking to upgrade from old to new can both transfer and notify contacts through the new format. There is also a localized global version in which users can choose a localized version for their specific country
