It seems like the monotonous outlook of the mailbox has finally caught attention of the service providers. A recent epidemic entitled as â€œbringing your mailbox to lifeâ€ has emerged whereby different features are enabled for the purpose of personalizing the homepage suiting the needs of the user. The most recent feature is of applying themes or colours to your inbox, and of trying to manage the inbox in different and new ways.
Now different webmail vendors are offering different features. Yahoo and AOL are providing their users with 6 different colours. Of course to maintain the interest of the user the colours have been awarded innovative names such as ocean and sky for what we simple call â€œblueâ€. On the other hand, msn and gmail have surpassed yahoo and aol in terms of innovation. Various â€œthemesâ€ have been uploaded with msn offering a total of 8 stylish themes and gmail offering 31!
In addition, new startup companies are trying to enhance email in different ways. Orgoo, that we covered earlier, offers a way to blend email, video and instant messaging into one interface. Xobni connects with Microsoft Outlook and searches through your email lists to find social connections between emails and other useful stats. Zenbe offers a striking new interface to emails…. making them look like web forums or the Facebook wall more than a standard inbox.
Yes, so finally our placid inbox has undergone a drastic change to an interface with colors and fun. From ninja themes to bubblegum colours, now you have the authority to personalize your interface according to your mood and your requirement.
