Try the new Yahoo!Mail beta

While everyone else is waiting to try the new Yahoo! Mail Beta, people in the UK, Germany and France are already using it.

So, if you want to switch to the new platform and try out the beta version, just do the following changes in your Yahoo! Mail account.

1) Login to your Yahoo! Mail and go to Options.

2) Select the Account Information tab and edit your Member Information.

3) In the Preferred Content filed, choose either Germany, France or UK. If you are to choose UK, it will ask you for a ZIP code — use this UB3 5AJ.

4) Save your changes. Login abck to your Yahoo Mail and you will be greeted with a page which will ask you if you want to try the new Yahoo! Mail Beta.

5) Select Yes and you’re on your way.

    I’ve been using beta for a couple of months now. And my thoughts are:

    1) it’s neat–tries to be like Outlook with tabs
    2) but it’s SLOW

    I’m not sure if having a desktop-like interface for a webmail works out well

  • I chose UK and it didn’t ask for the Zip Code.

    This is pretty bad timing though, since the only time I can use Yahoo! Mail decently here in Shanghai is if I use Tor. Gah.

  • yep. i tried, but the screen that greets me states that the beta is not yet available on my account. i tried UK and i also replaced the zip the i had.

  • eispan

    funny that this doesn’t work with another BETA… yup the Internet Explorer 7.0 Beta 2 (Bug Free try it!)…

    and that post code you have given us to use there is from Heathrow Airport in London! UB is withing the Uxbridge visinity…
