Yahoo's 10th Anniversary Celebrated with New APIs

Earlier this week, I wrote about Yahoo offering unlimited mail storage. I didn't mention this recent WebmasterWorld finding that states that Yahoo is going to offer new APIs for Yahoo mail. According to a news report:

Late on Wednesday, Yahoo plans to deliver application programming interfaces (APIs) for Yahoo Mail, said Chad Dickerson, head of the Yahoo Developer Network. The move comes on the heels of an announcement to offer unlimited storage capacity for Yahoo Mail users starting from May.

Yahoo officials had indicated in September of last year their intention to let external developers write applications for Yahoo Mail, and the tools will now be available at the Yahoo Developer Network Web site.

The Yahoo Mail API will be added onto Yahoo's many APIs available to programmers, including Yahoo! Answers, Yahoo! Shopping, and Yahoo! Maps, among many others.

Discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.
