Yahoo Mail upgrade adds 'wonderful' features

Better photo sharing on the way

Yahoo Mail users can look forward to a number of new features, including better photo sharing, according to Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz.

"We have a billion emails passing through our servers every day. Mail is really important to us and that is why I'm excited about a new mail service," Bartz said at an investor conference in San Francisco.

Although the new release of Yahoo Mail will have better photo sharing, Bartz would not reveal other new features, other than to say "it's a lot better, it's wonderful".

Last month, Bartz announced that Yahoo Mail would no longer display ads in certain emerging markets, to better serve (and keep) users with slower internet connections.

During the investor conference Bartz also described a "wall of shame" for Yahoo products that are not up to scratch.

She hasn't pointed fingers at any products in particular, but said she uses Google Maps rather than her own company's mapping service.

"I don't use Yahoo Maps. I use Google Maps," she said.
