The Yahoo! Mail blog back on May 16 wrote a post in which they stated that they were removing the taglines (the little adverts they place as a footer) in all sent emails. (Users who pay for the Yahoo! Mail Plus version didn’t have these added). However, as a user myself, three months after that post they are still being added to all emails I send. Now I’m not complaining that they are added, I’ve been using Yahoo! Mail for years as a very happy user, and with the (not so now) new AJAX version it just keeps getting better.
However, I do find it frustrating that they advertise this development but I then fail to see its realisation. It would be a most welcomed change, as can be seen from the comments on the post. In fact, it appears there are some who even pay for Yahoo! Mail Plus for this sole reason.
I’m aware that the way Yahoo! roll an update out across the server farms means not everybody receives the update at the same time (Yahoo! themselves wrote a couple of posts on this topic back when the beta was being rolled out, see: , ), but I figure three months has given them a fair chance before I start moaning . I’m on farm uk.mg2 (or uk.f654 if I use the old ‘classic’ version, although the tagline is added in either case.) Anyway, let’s just hope they haven’t forgotten to roll this out fully!
