Yandex.Mail will not only keep you away from US spy agencies but it also have many cool features which would make you love your inbox even more.
Yandex is most popular search engine in Russia. They recently started approaching users outside Russia by translating Yandex services into English and other languages. Yandex.Mail is one of their services which is now available for international users as well.
My system specifications are 3.0ghz processor, 2GB RAM and Outlook/Gmail were always making my browser slow. But Yandex.Mail is fast, simple and lightweight for systems.
I shall talk about features which are different from other email providers, will not talk about basic email features and features which gmail/outlook are also providing. For example Yandex.Mail also provides unlimited storage, XMPP/Jabber chat support, IMAP/POP3 support etc.
- Yandex.Mail have email pictures support to and from other email providers. No you don’t upload pictures with all your email contacts one by one like in Gmail. But Yandex Automatically fetches images of senders of other email servers. Users of other email services will also see your Yandex.Mail profile picture in their email inbox.
- Yandex.Mail’s fast loading lightweight interface saves a lot of time. Yandex.Mail takes less than 15 seconds to fully load while outlook and gmail take more than 40 seconds to load web completely. Reading and responding to emails is fun. In Gmail I used to spend about 15 minutes everyday to read and reply emails from friends. But in Yandex it takes my less than 5 minutes everyday.
- Yandex.Mail have email delivery notifications feature which notifies you when your email reaches recipients server.
- When writing new email you can select to receive link to your email’s copy as SMS for free.
- Yandex.Mail gives email scheduling option. Very useful to schedule Eid Mubarak emails in advance before you get busy with shopping and guests.
- When you are reading long emails, Yandex.Mail’s top floating bar gives you quick options such as go to Top, Reply, Delete buttons which make email use fast and comfortable, unlike gmail where you have to all scroll up or bottom to click buttons.
- Another feature I liked in Yandex.Mail is that if user wants he can ask Yandex to show social media profiles of the sender. Helps get connected to friends and grow social media presence.
- Yandex.Mail’s one click sending email templates can sometimes save a lot of time while replying to emails and very useful for businesses.
- Yandex.Mail have option to set reminder to send another email if your friend haven’t replied to your first email.
- Send cool emails at cool times to your friends without any efforts using Yandex E cards within Email Compose screen. Add card (from many), add text and send. Recipient won’t be bothered to click any special link to view your card.
- Tired of typing with keyboard? You can send voice and video messages using your Microphone and Webcam with Yandex.Mail.
- Yandex.Mail have better sender’s email digital verification than gmail and outlook. Not only big companies but Yandex check individuals also for their email sending methods. If suspicious emails are detected, Yandex will warn you. Trusted senders are shown with a tiny green icon.
- Yandex.Mail have built in RSS reader where you can add your favorite sites to get updates from them. Yandex’s RSS reader feature goes along all Yandex mobile apps. Your reader stays with your email everywhere.
- Yandex.Mail supports jabber chat. You can use Yandex.Mail mobile apps or use any jabber client on computer or mobile to chat with google talk, nimbuzz and other xmpp/jabber friends using your Yandex ID.
- Yandex.Mail have better inbox sorting. Sort emails by weeks, months, end of month, start of month, by year.
- Yandex.Mail keeps all sent and received email attachments gathered at one place. You can search for any file or view them all as lists. They can also be sorted by weeks, months and year.
- Yandex.Disk gives 10GB storage and provides features like google drive. But better than google drive and widely available on almost all mobile devices and computers. Works with Linux OS without downloading Yandex.Disk application.
- Detailed logs: Yandex.Mails have taken steps for security. They not only give details of ip logs but also other email logs such as email fetching etc. Logs are saved for months.
- Different themes and Yandex.Mail have three different views.
Try Yandex.Mail, it’s still new and Yandex team listens/responds to user feedbacks. Several good IDs are still available for registration and it is easy to switch from other email provider to Yandex. You can import all your gmail/outlook/yahoo and other new and old emails to Yandex inbox.
