GMail vs Yahoo Business Email

Gmail is a free, advertising-supported email service provided by Google. Users may access Gmail as secure webmail, as well via POP3 or IMAP protocols. Gmail's spam filtering features a community-driven system: when any user marks an email as spam, this provides information to help the system identify similar future messages for all Gmail users. Google also provides GMail alternative for business - G Suite Mail.

2017 - Gmail adds add-on support to challenge Yahoo Business Email

Google is adding support for third-party add-ons that can integrate directly into Gmail. There are plenty of services that add functionality to Gmail already, of course, but they typically do that through a browser extension. Users will be able to install these add-ons from the G Suite Marketplace. That’s the same marketplace that already hosts add-ons for Google’s other productivity tools like Docs and Sheets. Users who install one of these new add-ons will be able to use them on the web and in Google’s mobile Gmail apps It’ll take a bit before this goes live, though. Google says this new feature is coming “later this year.”

2015 - Yahoo Mail gets Xobni-based contact cards to strike back at GMail

Yesterday, Google announced a revamp of its Google Contacts service, and today Yahoo is following up with rolling out new “Contacts Cards” in Yahoo Mail, which are small cards that pop up when you hover over a person’s name in a message, showing you useful information about them like their phone number, title, company, and even links to their social profiles. The Contact Cards will display the usual information like phone, title, email and more, along with a photo (or a logo, if it’s a company), and links to social profiles, including Facebook as well as Yahoo-owned Flickr. The new system is being powered by technology from Xobni, a company it acquired back in 2013. As you may recall, Xobni was among the first companies to develop an email add-on that was able to pull in additional information about your contacts right into your inbox, including data from other social networks.

2013 - GMail allows to preview attachments to keep up competition with Yahoo Business Email

Before now IT vendors struggled for the environment ecology - persuaded companies to use electronic documents instead of paper. Now that most of the documents are electronic - it's time to struggle for the ecology of computer networks. Indeed, the huge amounts of traffic (data transmitted back and forth), multiple copies of the same documents in different places - becomes an ecological problem. The new appeal of IT- companies goes something like this: "Documents should be created in the Cloud, stored in the Cloud, viewed, edited and approved in the Cloud". When you download a document from the Internet to your computer - you chop wood and kill a beaver. That's how Google developers think. Today they have added another new feature in GMail - the ability to save attachments (files , documents) from the received messages directly to your online storage in Google Drive. Early GMail also added the ability to attach files to outgoing messages directly from the online Drive, so you don't need to download and upload documents to your email and back any more.

2010 - Google Contacts will become a CRM solution. Yahoo Business Email should better react

Google Contacts
Today, Google has rolled out the new GMail version and it's major upgrade is the fully redesigned Google Contacts section. Now the main GMail menu consists of 3 main items: Mail, Contacts and Tasks. And while the Tasks module is still like a toy, the Google Contacts has been remaked into a grown-up contact manager with interface, similar to Gmail (which has already proved its usability). You can now assign tags to contacts, like to emails. The contact page now includes the large Notes field that is convenient to log the most important points in relationships with a person. You can also see all email conversations with this person. Besides now you can edit the contact data without switching to the edit mode (like before). But the most interesting - is not the external redesign. It turned out that Google Contacts has its own product manager - Benjamin Grol, and when he represented the new features, he noted that Google is thinking about turning Contacts into a better CRM solution.

Nevertheless, still these are just the words. Even the basic CRM feature - shared contacts - is not implemented yet in Google Contacts. Moreover, the updated Google Contacts is not yet available in Google Apps, even though the Google Apps users - the guys that actually pay for the service.
