Yahoo! Mail Search Upgraded

This past Tuesday Gary Price reported that Enhancements Made to Yahoo Mail Search. I rarely ever look at Yahoo! mail, and even Gmail, but its an important thing to note. I have been waiting for some of the forums to start chatting about it before I write anything on the topic. Gary listed the new features:

  • Attachment Search
  • Find keywords not only in email text but also in attachments.
  • Dynamic Search Refinements
  • Results get broken down into five categories: Senders, Folders, Attachments, Message Status, and Date.
  • Photo View and Attachment Views
  • Quickly see photos and attachments associated with your results set.

At WebmasterWorld they have a thread on the topic. Here is WebmasterWorld's moderator physics comment.

When I search now it searches inside the messages (not just the titles and sender) and then shows a serp-like page with snippets and all. Also shows senders that sent emails with those key phrases in them (clicking a link to a sender narrows the search to just include said sender), folders they were found in, nice. Watch out gmail ;)

An other member noted that "the search feature only works on messages as far back as August 25." I am not sure if that is accurate but doesn't sound too accurate to me.
