Brief: AT&T, Yahoo Launch Enhanced Web Mail In Beta

The limited-release beta software includes drag-and-drop E-mail organization, message preview, and an integrated RSS reader.

AT&T and Yahoo Inc. on Wednesday launched in beta a new version of their joint Web mail that includes several enhancements.

The beta version, which is available to a limited number of AT&T Yahoo Mail users, includes drag-and-drop email organization, message preview and an integrated RSS reader for tapping into news feeds, blog entries and other Web content.

Yahoo and AT&T are marketing the new interface as the most significant enhancement since Yahoo and SBC Communications, which recently acquired AT&T, launched their joint email client in 2001.

"It's a user-friendly upgrade that will make this popular application more powerful and more versatile, giving us another advantage over our competitors," Kieran Nolan, vice president of AT&T Broadband, said in a statement. "It's fast and easy to use -- an experience we believe that customers will enjoy."

Other enhancements include search of email headers, bodies and attachments; and the ability to view multiple emails at the same time through tabbed navigation.

A general release date was not disclosed.
