The Sunnyvale-based company expects to begin registering new addresses under the domains of "ymail" and "rocketmail" around noon PDT Thursday at mail.yahoo.com.

It will be the first time that Yahoo has offered e-mail accounts under umbrellas other than its own company name since it became a correspondence conduit in 1997.

I don't like introducing new domains.
I feel it would be away better if the make different domains for each country, eg. @yahoo.co.uk @yahoo.com.eg

I noticed Yahoo bought Ymail.com a few months back. A lowercase y can look too much like a lowercase g in writing, though.

Following Google, or should we say, copying from Google?

I agree with scjm, expect spam to your GMail address asking to renew from google-employee[put at-character here]ymail.com

Yahoo employees are not as smart as G. They love to copy their ideas.

The data doesn't support the contention that Yahoo is a failure.

Wouldn't be so quick to write off Yahoo with something like "Yahoo employees are not as smart;" a silly thing to say. Both companies have more doctoral degrees than most universities.

To be the top trafficked site globally..you have to do something right.
